£highly competitive • Manchester

With approximately 3,500 students, a track record of excellent results, and an inclusive, student-centred learning environment, Loreto Sixth Form College is an integral part of Manchester’s educational system. Our student population reflects the incredible diversity of this amazing city, and we undertake that every student – whatever their previous attainment – will gain life-long enrichment and learning from the time they spend with us. Our approach is characterised by successful integration of the academic, vocational and pastoral aspects of college life, balancing a distinct sense of purpose in the classroom with a myriad of extra-curricular opportunities. All our work is rooted in the Catholic values of our founder Mary Ward, celebrating Freedom, Justice, Sincerity, Truth, Excellence, Joy and Internationality.

We will look to our new Principal to build on our existing strengths. An exceptional leader who can challenge, support, and stretch an already strong team, you will understand how to nourish an organisational culture founded on continuous professional development and learning. You will discover an organisation with a shared sense of purpose, supportive of its leaders, and committed to shaping great outcomes for the learners of Manchester and its environs. We’re open to leadership experience from a range of settings, but it’s important that you can bring a good awareness and knowledge of the specific post-16 pedagogic, financial and inspection framework. It is an essential requirement of the role that you are a practising Catholic.

This is a career-defining role in which you will build on a successful legacy, shaping how we adapt to changes in the sector and in students’ needs, and further enhance Loreto College’s capacity to offer a uniquely student-focused education. We enjoy being part of Loreto – you will too.
