Based in the heart of Heston in the London Borough of Hounslow, The Rosary is a very popular school, serving the richly diverse parish communities of Heston, Osterley and Cranford.
Due to the relocation of our Headteacher we are looking for an inspirational and dynamic leader to build on our successes and lead us to the next phase of our development as a centre of excellence.

As a practising Catholic, your faith, drive and vision will help us to continue to maximise the development and achievements of all our children, as well as contributing to our local communities. You will be warmly welcomed by our enthusiastic children who are proud of their school and their achievements, our committed and motivated staff, engaged parents and a supportive Governing Body.

Challenges and opportunities ahead:
• To continue to work closely with St. Mary’s Twickenham and explore teaching school opportunities
• To work with and enhance the contribution of an existing strong leadership team
• To continue to drive standards across the school to ensure we support our pupil premium students and stretch the more able

Every new school year and every new child brings us a new challenge. We view the appointment of a new Headteacher as a great opportunity to look at ourselves with fresh eyes and would welcome and support new ideas and insights that would further enhance the educational opportunities offered to our children.

We would welcome applications from experienced Headteachers as well as Deputies (or equivalent) who will be able to demonstrate excellent leadership, management and communication skills in a substantial school. Our Deputy Headteacher will not be applying for the post.

Visits to the school for prospective candidates are both recommended and warmly welcomed. Even if you have not been considering a move why not come and visit us and find out about this great opportunity to enjoy leading our community?
