Dear Headteacher Applicant

Welcome to Applegarth Primary School.

Aim high....Be happy....Celebrate....Together

On behalf of the governing body, thank you for taking an interest in the position of Headteacher. I hope that you will find the information provided a useful introduction to our school and that you will take the opportunity to apply for the post.

Our governors are seeking to appoint a leader who will build on the school’s many strengths. The pupils, staff, parents, governors and our community are proud of our school where the children thrive in a ‘vibrant, exciting and happy school’ with a ‘friendly feel’’.

Applegarth Primary School; a ‘Heritage School’, is a warm and friendly school located in the market town of Northallerton; serving a number of small villages in the surrounding area.

We wish to appoint a Headteacher who will continue to take our school forward. The school has the benefit of a highly committed, experienced, and loyal team of staff, supportive parents and governing body. In the changing educational environment, there will be many exciting challenges ahead.

I would encourage you to visit our school in advance of your application and see for yourself the enthusiasm that our children have for their education.
