A Primary and Nursery school with over 450 pupils and more than 90 staff, The Flying Bull Academy is located in the coastal City of Portsmouth.  Considered a real strength of the School is its outstanding relationships between staff and pupils which was further recognised by Ofsted in a recent report – a report the School is proud of, and confirmed what it knows and reinforces the plans for improvement.

As an exemplary cross primary phase classroom practitioner that leads in curriculum innovation and with excellent people skills, you will have experience of leading and bringing about successful school improvement and the presence to inspire confidence, enabling others to feel empowered and motivated to achieve high goals.  With a high level of commitment to the whole school community and an excellence to learning and teaching, you will have an ability to foster an open, innovative culture, supporting the needs of all pupils.
