We are seeking an inspiring, talented and dynamic senior leader who is ready to take their next step in their leadership career in a successful, creative school with a dedicated team of colleagues.

Ryhall CE Primary School takes pride in nurturing ‘the whole child’ and strives to meet the needs of each individual child. Children feel cared for and supported on their learning journey.

Inspectors noted that pupils engage fully in lessons and demonstrate positive attitudes to their learning; that they understand what it means to be resilient and actively help each other in lessons; and that pupils are happy and proud of their school.  

Ryhall is proud to be a member of Peterborough Diocese Education Trust (PDET), a forwarding thinking academy trust which is fully committed to the ‘flourishing of all’. The Trust regards developing people as a key priority in order to achieve educational excellence and hence, invests in people to develop their individual skills and talents.  Ryhall has a wonderfully positive working environment; all members of staff are appreciated and valued for the part they play in a highly effective team.
