  • Location - Co-op Academy Leeds
  • Closing date - February 10, 2022

Co-op Academy Leeds is an inspiring place to work and learn and as part of the Co-op Academies Trust, aims to secure excellence in all aspects of its work. It is one of twenty-six schools in the Trust, five of which are schools within the East Leeds locality. Whilst all schools in the Trust demonstrate a strong commitment to cooperative values and principles, the close proximity of the academies in East Leeds in particular has helped to facilitate cooperation across both the primary and secondary phase and reinforce our belief that these values and principles are crucially important. It is therefore vital that applicants are willing to fully embrace these, embedding them into the learning experiences for students and using them to drive up academic standards further. The Trust is a successful and highly collaborative partnership of schools committed to raising the educational ambitions of the communities which it serves.

We are seeking to appoint an exceptional Assistant Principal to the Academy; someone who will promote a culture of excellence by leading, developing and embedding outstanding Teaching and Learning across the school whilst adding capacity to the leadership team to enhance the strategic direction, vision and operational management at Co-op Academy Leeds. Providing highly visible leadership and professional expertise, our ideal candidate will drive forward the educational experience across the academy and will present as an outward facing professional within the academy, ensuring that the vision and priorities are clearly articulated, shared and promote and sustain school improvement.

We would welcome applications from talented and ambitious middle leaders looking to take the next step in senior leadership, along with existing Assistant Principals looking to continue their career in a diverse and large secondary academy supported by a highly regarded Trust. So, if you’re a committed educationalist, steeped in the skills and knowledge of school improvement, with a belief in the power of co-operation to achieve great things – please get in touch with us and consider applying.
