Thank you for your interest in this stretching and rewarding role. We’re delighted to be able to invite applications for what we believe to be one of the most exciting and significant education leadership roles in Yorkshire.

It’s a fabulous opportunity to lead one of the most rounded, happy and high-performing schools in the region. We are very proud that Fulford School has just received the accolade of Sunday Times State Secondary School of the Year for the North of England, and was judged Outstanding by Ofsted; but just as important in our eyes are the consistently high levels of parental satisfaction and positive student feedback.

We want to hear from experienced education professionals with strong leadership and team development skills, new ideas, rigour and drive: these will be the critical success factors for both South York MAT (SYMAT) and Fulford School. And as you add the CEO skillset to that of Headteacher, you’ll be perfectly placed to shape SYMAT as it progresses and grows.

We are being supported in this process by Navigate NDC; please don’t hesitate to contact either Jo Fish or David Gooda on 0113 493 1975 if you would like an informal conversation. Finally, we hope you find the information on this site helpful; and we look forward to receiving your application.
