We are looking for an exceptional leader who knows what outstanding looks like.

They should bring considerable passion and high levels of energy to the role. The successful candidate will play a key role in supporting the Headteacher in leading the operational and ongoing strategic development of the school. 

The success of our school is built on the foundation of strong relationships and an ethos of support and care that underpins all that we do.  It is expected that the Deputy Headteacher will be in sympathy with the Christian ethos of the school. The successful applicant will demonstrate such values and set this example to our school community.

The school has:

  • an enviable reputation and is consistently oversubscribed
  • a hardworking and committed staff
  • a school community with a genuine family ethos
  • a very sound financial base and well-resourced school site
  • experienced and ambitious leadership team and a supportive Governing Body

  • OFSTED “outstanding” (2008)
  • SIAMS “outstanding” (2017)
  • lovely students who engage well in their learning and their community
  • a rich and diverse range of extra-curricular activities.

Debenham is a large, attractive village 14 miles north of Ipswich and 30 miles south of Norwich; it is an excellent and attractive area for families and Mid Suffolk has been judged on a wide range of criteria to be among the best locations in which to live.

Under normal circumstances we would encourage individual visits with any potential candidates, however, in light of the current global situation this will not be possible. If you would like to organise a pre-application discussion with Simon Martin, the Headteacher, please email Mrs Jules Norman hr@debenhamhigh.co.uk to arrange a convenient time.

Completed applications should be returned to Mrs Norman, Office Manager at hr@debenhamhigh.co.uk
