Director of Computing

Lionheart Academy Trust is seeking to appoint an exceptional professional to join our Trust Leadership Team as Director of Computing and online safety in our secondary phase. The successful candidate will provide strategic direction, leadership and management of computing and IT education across our schools. We see this post holder supporting our colleagues to fully embed the aims of the national and trust curriculum so that all pupils develop a love for the subject and make exceptional progress, thus facilitating and unlocking potential in a wide range of other disciplines.

Lionheart Academies Trust is currently made up of a family of four primary schools, six secondary schools and a sixth form college. Lionheart Academies Trust was formed by Beauchamp College as an outstanding provider. We seek to build on this, further breaking down any barriers to learning and ensuring that each provider in our trust is able to embed excellence in all areas of practice. Ultimately, we believe that any young person from any background deserves an equal chance to be successful in whatever they choose to do. We want to share our love of learning with all young people in our care; we are preparing our students with the knowledge and confidence to thrive in a competitive world.

This is an exciting opportunity to really make a difference to a wide range of learners and to work at the heart of a successful and supportive local trust, which has an unwavering commitment to continuous professional development and staff wellbeing. This includes participation in the cycle to work scheme, sponsorship for further study, leadership development programmes and opportunities for ‘golden time’ during the academic year.
