The Governors of Wardour Catholic Primary School seek to appoint an experienced school leader to take on the headship of this successful voluntary aided rural school, starting in September 2019.

There are currently some 95 children on roll, there being five classes. Wardour School has extensive gardens and grounds – regularly used for “forest school” activities - and access to woodland and open countryside within walking distance.

The school’s mission is to develop young people who are confident, reflective, responsible and resilient learners; who understand that learning is for life and who are able to become all that God created them to be.
Wardour School aims to provide an inspiring and well-rounded education for all our children. We encourage each child to aspire to achieve their full potential and to develop a passion for learning that will stay with them throughout their life.

At Wardour, we believe in celebrating every child’s achievement, however small. We want to challenge our children to aim high but not to be afraid to fail, to have the courage to admit their mistakes, to be curious about the world and make informed decisions, to listen respectfully and value other people’s viewpoints, and to be fearless when standing up for what is right and fair.

As a Catholic school, we place as much emphasis on pastoral care as on academic excellence. We believe in supporting the emotional and spiritual needs of our children so that they develop strength of character and resilience, qualities they will surely need as they grow up and go on to take their place in this fast-changing world.

The Governors wish to appoint a committed practising Roman Catholic, but are prepared to appoint a non-Catholic, provided that the candidate is fully committed to the Catholic ethos of the school.
