Headteacher of Tregolls School An Academy

Salary Range: L15 to L21 (£59,581-£69,031)


Responsible to: The Board of Governors

Responsible for: All staff and students within the school


The governors of Tregolls School - an Academy seek a dynamic, ambitious and innovative Headteacher to guide the school through the next exciting period of development and change.


A stand-alone academy in the beautiful cathedral city of Truro, Cornwall, it comprises a Nursery and Area Resource Base as well as two form entry from reception to Year 6. Completion of a large extension in 2017 took our capacity to 420 pupils. Currently the number on role is at 327 but Truro is a thriving city and the school is expected to reach capacity in the next few years.


The new Headteacher will build on and enhance present relationships with other schools whilst driving forward the reputation of the school to inspire stakeholders. The next Headteacher will have the full support of an active and supportive Board of Governors, a committed Senior Leadership Team and a dedicated staff body.

We are looking for someone who will:

  •          Lead our highly skilled teachers to further provide quality education for our children;
  •          Effectively communicate with all stakeholders;
  •          Lead an inclusive culture that promotes excellence, equality and high expectations of all  members of the school community;
  •          Have a track record of leading positive change, especially with children deemed disadvantaged;
  •          Provide broad and balanced opportunities to develop the whole child;
  •          Have the ability to manage growth and the responsibilities of an accounting officer in a stand-alone academy.

We can offer:

  •          The freedom that a stand-alone academy brings;
  •          A fully committed and enthusiastic team of staff;
  •          A board of governors who are passionate about making a difference;
  •          Links to The Penair Partnership of schools who work collectively to improve education across Truro.
  •          A unique wellbeing package that recognises the stresses of school leadership at this time.

At Tregolls we prepare our children to be Life Ready and support them to Live Happy. We are looking for a special person to make that Vision Statement a reality.
