FRAMWELLGATE SCHOOL DURHAM
Group 7 (£83,081-£118,732)
Scale to be determined based on the skills and experience of the successful candidate
Required from September 2024
We wish to appoint a highly motivated Headteacher who will bring knowledge, experience, and leadership to a successful, dynamic, and expanding school at a significant stage of its development. Framwellgate School Durham is an 11-18 non-selective secondary school and Single Academy Trust. The school roll has increased by 35% over the last five years, and we have almost 1300 students who attend the school. The curriculum is now more academic and knowledge rich, teaching is research informed, outcomes have improved, and we have invested heavily in CPD and training. Our Sixth Form, almost unviable five years ago, has grown and now has some of the best outcomes in the area.
The school is part of the DfE’s School Rebuilding Programme and will be rebuilt on the same site by 2025/26 with an increased roll of up to 1600 students. We are also in the process of further trust development, and we envisage the successful candidate working with fellow Headteachers as part of an expanded trust.
The successful candidate will bring energy, enthusiasm, and demonstrable success from their current leadership role. We are looking for someone with high standards and expectations, values which chime with ours, and real emotional intelligence.
Queries and applications should be submitted to Executive Assistant, Fiona Thompson at Thompson.firstname.lastname@example.org
We strongly advise that you visit the school in the week commencing 22nd January. Please contact Fiona Thompson to book a place.
The closing date for applications is Tuesday 6th February at 9.00am

Framwellgate School Durham
Framwellgate School Durham (FSD) is an 11-18 school which was granted academy status in 2011. There are approximately 1300 students on roll including 140 in the Sixth Form. Within the next two years, we envisage a roll of 1400 including 230+ in the sixth form. The school serves the population to the north of Durham city, primarily from the Newton Hall estate, but we attract students from a wide surrounding area and over 20 feeder primary schools. We are a high achieving 11-18 academy with a strong track record in both provision and outcomes. We are fully committed to the students in our care, and work to ensure that both the pastoral provision and quality of teaching is the very best.Visit School Website
