Droitwich Spa High School is a 12-18 High School of nearly 1300 students, including a Sixth Form of 190 students. We are a standalone academy, the only high school serving the town of Droitwich Spa and the surrounding villages. The school maintained its Good grade in its most recent Ofsted Inspection in June 2022.

The Governors are looking for a highly effective leader with a natural leaning towards collaborative working. We are proud of our school and are looking for someone who will uphold our excellent reputation and nurture our existing and positive relationships with staff, parents and carers.

In return we offer:

The opportunity to follow our vision and shape the future success of DSHS, continuing to provide our students with a curriculum that is broad, balanced and enriching.
An inclusive ethos that serves a diverse range of students.
An experienced, creative and committed team of staff who provide high quality opportunities for all students, including those with SEND and our Most Able, to flourish and succeed.

A good range of facilities and extensive grounds.
