Inspiring Learners, Changing Lives


Principal at The Brittons Academy

The Brittons Academy is a great school in waiting. Pupils are polite, positive and friendly, and arrive in Year 7 with a firm foundation for their future learning. The staff are purposeful, dedicated and caring. The community in which the Academy sits is vibrant and diverse. It is an 11-16 comprehensive academy in Rainham, London Borough of Havering.

You will be a current Principal, or an outstanding Deputy looking for your first Headship. You will have the strength of will and character to take the Academy to the next level and beyond. You will share ELAT's values of: Passion; Respect; Inclusion; Challenge and Openness.

The Brittons Academy became part of the Empower Learning Academy Trust (ELAT) in September 2016 and the Trust has been working with the leadership team to bring about improvement. In May 2017, Ofsted recognised that the Academy was making progress on its improvement journey, but rightly concluded that there was not quite sufficient evidence at that time to upgrade the Academy from 'Requires Improvement'.

The Empower Learning Academy Trust is a small, local trust with strong values. We believe that teaching really can be transformational for students' lives. Our Teaching School and our focused school improvement support show that we 'walk the talk'. The Principal will benefit from the support of our CEO, who is a National Leader of Education.

Salary: L28-L32 (Outer London). £79,591 - £87,461
