The Role

Trinity Academy St Edward’s

Assistant Principal (Teaching and Learning)

Leadership Scale L14-L18 (£58,135 – £64,143)

Trinity Multi Academy Trust is proud to have transformed the life chances of thousands of pupils across its existing academies, and our core values of Empathy, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility run through all aspects of academy life. Our secondary schools consistently achieve academic results which place them in the top 10% of highest performing schools in the country and receive national and international recognition for the quality of their provision.

As a Trust we were excited to have been chosen by the Department for Education as their approved sponsor to open a new secondary school to support the increasing population of Barnsley. In September 2021 Trinity Academy St Edward’s opened its doors to a founding cohort of Year 7 students from across the town.

We are now seeking an Assistant Principal (Teaching and Learning) to join the senior leadership team at our brand new academy. The successful applicant will contribute to further develop the teaching and learning framework that is in its infancy at our school.

Working alongside other senior leaders you will play a significant part in the operational leadership of all aspects of teaching and learning. You will have oversight of the implementation of our Trust Policy and be given the chance to innovate in key areas to ensure our children are immersed in a world class learning environment.

We are looking for a dedicated, passionate and strong leader who has experience in leading aspects of teaching and learning. You will have a thorough understanding of how children learn, how pedagogy plays a vital part in this and be fully up to date with the latest academic research to ensure you lead our staff to deliver a world class learning experience.

As we are a growing academy you will play a significant role in the daily operational working of our school and contribute significantly to the planning and delivery of CPD for our staff.

Alongside all of this, you will be part of a strong leadership team who is committed to changing the lives of our children and a Trust that will invest in your development as a leader.

This is a truly exciting time to be a member of Team Trinity as we start to plan our move to our new £25million, 18-acre, new build in September 2023 where children’s learning and experiences will transform their lives and that of the community.

What we need:
• An experienced leader with a track record of success
• A candidate with an aptitude for delivering and developing quality teaching and learning

What we can offer:
• Full support from a dedicated team of senior leaders from around the Trust
• A first class Behaviour for Learning system
• Excellent teaching resources
• Career progression and cross-Trust working
• An excellent CPD package for all staff, including a further comprehensive programme of professional development provided through the Trinity Institute of Education and West Yorkshire Maths    Hub
• A range of staff benefits

You must be fully committed to optimising the opportunities that are available to children and young people, secure in the knowledge that you will be joining an ambitious, forward-thinking Academy Trust that sets the standards for our family of schools and academies.

We are holding a recruitment evening on Tuesday 25th January 2022 (5:30pm – 6:30pm) where you will have the opportunity to look around our school, meet some of our amazing team and learn more about the opportunities on offer. To register your attendance please email If required, this event will be held remotely. Places will be limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
