Whitehall Park School opened in September 2014 as a primary free school serving pupils aged 4-11 years old, based in Islington. Whitehall Park School is part of the Bellevue Place Education Trust.

A non-selective, non-denominational, co-educational school, Whitehall Park School welcomes children of all abilities from all backgrounds. The BPET vision is for all pupils to receive a broad and balanced curriculum that combines academic rigour with highly enriched opportunities that deliver a personalised approach to education and exceptional outcomes for all.

Whitehall Park School has been judged by OfSTED to be a Good school with Outstanding for personal development, behaviour and welfare in April 2017. The school is popular with parents and the progress of pupils is well above national averages. This appointment has been timed to coincide with the first year the school will be full and later that academic year, the first pupils to complete Key Stage 2 at the end of 2020/21. This is an excellent opportunity for the new Headteacher to lead this excellent school to the next level, delivering the BPET and school vision.

We are seeking an experienced senior leader in the primary sector; you will have a strong track record in leadership and core learning. Capable of interpreting, developing and implementing the BPET education vision, your excellent communications skills will be vital in promoting the school to the community and delivering a high standard of education through a broad and balanced curriculum. Our focus is for the school to deliver the BPET vision to a very high standard.

In return, you will get that rarest of opportunities: the chance to lead a new, growing school, in a purpose-built environment and ensure that every element is optimised to deliver outstanding teaching and learning. Furthermore, you will receive unparalleled access to support and to career advancement through our network of schools and development programmes.
