3 Welcome Letter Dear applicant Thank you for your interest in the post of Director of the Humber Teaching School. Due to our existing Director s decision to retire, we are recruiting a new Director. The existing Director will be available initially to assist with a handover. This post is based in Healing School - A Science Academy. Healing School is a highly innovative, inspirational and ambitious organisation and the lead school for the Humber Teaching School and the Healing Multi Academy Trust. Healing School is an comprehensive converter academy situated in the attractive and popular village of Healing, close to the M180 and in the semi-rural local authority of North East Lincolnshire. We are oversubscribed and have 860 pupils on roll and draw from a widespread catchment, including the surrounding villages of Healing, Stallingborough, Keelby and Laceby. The number of pupils on roll is projected to rise to over 1000 during the next 5 years. Healing School is one of the most successful schools in the country, in the 100 top performing non-selective schools nationally and was judged outstanding in all categories by Ofsted in June It is a glowing endorsement of our principle that that every child is known and valued and that we are not complacent. The Humber Teaching School was designated by the Department for Education in the first cohort of 100 teaching schools for September The Teaching School is a diverse alliance of primary, secondary, tertiary and Higher Education Institutions and is well placed to respond to the challenges for school improvement.

This is an exciting time for an innovative leader who is passionate about shaping the future of system wide school improvement. It is a unique opportunity for a driven, resilient and inspirational individual to help further develop and implement the vision of the Humber Teaching School across our schools in the alliance and the Multi Academy Trust. We have a strong commitment to continuing professional development which was confirmed by achieving the Gold Standard for the Investors in People Award, one of only 11 in the Yorkshire and Humber region. We have a highly qualified, specialist teaching and support staff that ably support the many facets of the school s functions, including the Humber Teaching School and the Multi Academy Trust. 3
