Following the retirement of our current Headteacher, we are looking for an enthusiastic and creative school leader who is a practising Catholic with the drive and strategic vision to build upon the success of our school and will lead us to Outstanding.

St Mary Magdalene’s is a welcoming and inclusive school offering pupils a rich and vibrant educational experience firmly rooted in its Catholic ethos.

The mission statement is at the heart of the school’s Catholic life. Governors, school leaders and staff are committed to ensuring the well-being and personal development of each pupil. Pastoral care is excellent. Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary. They are proud of their school and enjoy being part of their school community.” (Section 48 - March 2016)

Our success is promoted and supported by effective teamwork and the partnership between all staff, Governors, parents and the parish community, all working together for the benefit of our children.

“There is a clear sense of purpose in the school. Relationships are strong and there is a high degree of mutual respect shown between staff at all levels. Everyone showed pride in belonging to the school community. This included the parents and pupils, who were very vocal in their support for the school and their respect for the staff within it.” (Ofsted - January 2016)

A visit to our wonderful school is encouraged and warmly welcomed.
