Principal, Ercall Wood Academy: Required September 2023
Group 6 L30-L34

We are seeking to appoint an inspirational and dynamic Principal to lead Ercall Wood Academy from September 2023. Our new Principal will succeed Mr. Richard Gummery, who moves to a new role within the Trust Education Team.

The academy (part of the Learning Community Trust) needs an ambitious leader who can drive the school forwards from its current solid foundations. The recent Ofsted report grading for our academy was Good in all areas with the exception of Quality of Education, an area of intensive work since the inspection. The ethos and vision of the academy is strong and the school has made considerable gains under its current leadership, demonstrating capacity to improve quickly in all key areas.

If you feel that you meet the above criteria then we would be delighted to meet you and would welcome your application. If you would like to have a tour and visit the school, prior to making an application, then please contact Mrs Veronica Croft, PA to the CEO on 01952 387010 or by email at

Closing Date for applications: 09.00am, Monday 15th April.
Interviews will take place on 16th – 17th May.
