Dear Headteacher Applicant

Thank you very much for taking an interest in the position of Headteacher at St Francis Xavier School. 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 students, staff, parents, governors and our community are proud of our school; our students are happy, well-behaved, motivated and enjoy learning.

We are a very successful, friendly, mixed Catholic & Anglican faith school located in an urban environment on the edge of Richmond, North Yorkshire, and around 15 miles north west of Northallerton, the county town.

We very much value our ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rating and wish to appoint a Headteacher who will maintain this while striving for continual improvement. Popular to the point where we are oversubscribed, other challenges for the new Headteacher will be to increase capacity within tight financial constraints and address Sixth form provision while maintaining our unique ethos and atmosphere.

In the changing educational environment, there will be many exciting challenges ahead. The school has the benefit of a highly committed, experienced, and loyal team of staff, supportive parents and governing body.

I would encourage you to visit our school in advance of your application and see for yourself the enthusiasm that our students have for their education. Such a visit is not part of the selection process, and whether or not applicants have visited will not influence the final outcome. Please call admin contact including telephone number and email.

I hope you find the information provided useful and informative and that it will encourage you to apply. On behalf of the governing body, thank you again for your interest in St Francis Xavier School.

Yours faithfully,

Mike Morrison

Vice Chair of Governors
