Orkney Islands Council is looking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced practitioner to the post of Acting Head Teacher at Stromness Academy until 13 October 2017. The successful candidate will need to be able to demonstrate excellent leadership; connect with pupils, parents, staff and community; and be ready to support the school as it continues on its journey to excellence.

Stromness Academy currently has 354 pupils from 6 associated primary schools in the West Mainland and South Isles of Orkney. It is large enough to provide a broad curriculum but small enough to be warm and welcoming. It also occupies a central place in the community and in the affections of generations of former pupils who remember their school days fondly.

For a discussion about the post, or further information about living and working in Orkney, please contact James Wylie, Service Improvement Officer, Orkney Islands Council, tel: 01856 873535, email: james.wylie@orkney.gov.uk.

It is anticipated that interviews will be held during week commencing 3 October 2016.

Closing Date: Thursday 29 September 2016

Please note that interview and resettlement expenses will be paid for this post.
