Deputy Headteacher


Thank you for your interest in the position of Deputy Headteacher at Cardinal Allen Catholic High School.

The Governors are ambitious for the school, and are seeking to appoint someone who will build upon our longstanding successes, and help lead the school on its journey to the next level.

You will see from our most recent inspection reports that many aspects of our provision are outstanding, but we acknowledge that further improvement is needed to ensure that all aspects are securely good or better, and are improving towards outstanding, for example, improving results. Whilst our most recent published outcomes show significant improvement on previous years, and sets us in good standing in relation to other local schools, and our internal data is very promising and points to continued improvements over the coming years, we still have some way to go to get back on track.

The school has a strong Senior Leadership Team which was recently restructured and, whilst you may notice that the current Deputy Headteacher’s principal responsibilities lay within the pastoral sphere, the team will adapt to embrace the skills, talents and experiences of the best candidate, from whichever aspect of school life they stem.

We hope you find the information on our website useful, and that you will feel encouraged to apply for this post.  If you are interested, we would very much like you to visit the school, however, in light of the current Covid restrictions, you may prefer to call to discuss this opportunity further. If you would like to take up this offer, please contact the Headteacher’s PA, Mrs Tracey Sales, by calling school, or email her directly at
