About the Post

Christchurch Junior School has a fantastic opportunity for an experienced leader with a vision for exceptional education. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of raising educational standards and maintaining school improvement, alongside a commitment to engage positively with local communities.

Christchurch Junior School is a large, popular community school, which caters for almost 500 children aged between 7 and 11 years. The children spend four years here. The classes are organised in year groups hosting four classes each. We are an inclusive school and welcome children from all walks of life and all faiths. The children enjoy excellent facilities in purpose built premises, which were constructed in 2001. Our facilities include a well-stocked Library and specialist teaching areas for Music and Computing. In 2010, our playing field was refurbished to a high standard. In 2011 we opened Old Building, purpose built accommodation for serving hot meals which also provides additional teaching and learning space with a suite of Music rooms. We take pride in our school’s support for music and sport, and our playing field has recently been enhanced by a non-turf cricket pitch. The school is a member of the Christchurch Learning Partnership of schools that work closely together to ensure high quality provision for all local school children.

Our vision is to create a caring community of motivated young learners who develop the confidence, skills, attitudes and qualities to realise their full potential. The concepts of ‘Belonging’, ‘Achieving’ and ‘Growing’ are important to us, because they support us to achieve our vision.

We are a member of Twynham Learning - an exciting multi-academy trust of ambitious infant, junior, primary and secondary schools serving the local community. Our aim is to offer this generation of children, young people and those involved in their education the very best leadership, teaching and learning, professional development and support services.
