Following the retirement of our current Headteacher, the Management Committee of Ealing Alternative Provision (EAP) are seeking to appoint a Headteacher with strong leadership skills and a drive for continued improvement to lead the next phase of our development.

This is an exciting opportunity for a new leader to build on our current success, to bring a fresh perspective on whole school improvement and to build on current successes to enhance our student and staff experience. EAP is the London Borough of Ealing’s alternative provision for students requiring education outside mainstream school. It is located in an attractive purpose-built site that is designed to accommodate a range of curriculum and pastoral delivery models, group and individual.

It is a well-regarded and established provision with a flexible approach that is aspirational for its students. EAP has a culturally diverse, vulnerable student population, who have been permanently excluded from school; are without a high school place and are referred by LB Ealing’s Fair Access Panel. Some students are referred for interim provision via our SENAS service and pupils with medical needs can be referred via the EAP Inclusion Gateway Portal on our website. The provision’s roll is on average 120 students each year with some students reintegrating to high school and on dual registration. Ealing schools are working to reduce exclusions of vulnerable groups and we aim to work with our partnership of high schools and the local authority to support preventative and innovative options going forward.

We have high expectations of all our students and are proud that they leave school with appropriate qualifications and skills that prepare them for life as young adults. We take pride that nearly all our students are able to access post-16 provision after Year 11 and we have invested in ongoing EAP support to ensure our students sustain their pathway into Year 12. We offer a supportive and vibrant learning community and outstanding CPD to our staff. We are currently taking part in the DFE funded Alternative Provision Specialist Taskforce project (APST) and are at the forefront of reducing youth violence with various projects on site and in the locale.

The successful candidate will:

  • Have substantial leadership experience as a Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher or equivalent role 
  • Have a strong commitment to providing an excellent learning environment for students who have been excluded and/or find school challenging 
  • Be able to work with the Management Committee to build on current success
  • Have the ability to inspire, challenge, and motivate students and staff
  • Be able to manage and utilise resources to the benefit of the EAP community

The school has:

  • A strong, stable and experienced leadership team 
  • A dedicated and loyal team of staff 
  • A committed and experienced Management Committee
  • Strong staff and student relationships (Ofsted 2019)
  •  An ethos of excellence for all where students are supported to achieve their best
