This exciting opportunity arises owing to the retirement of the present Principal, Mr Wayne Birks, after five successful years at St George’s Academy.

St George’s Academy is a large, successful, mixed secondary school of 2,200 students (including 340 in the sixth form) serving Sleaford, Ruskington and the surrounding Lincolnshire villages. The academy has a main campus at Sleaford and a smaller campus (11-16) in the village of Ruskington. A £20 million building programme was completed in 2012 and provides exceptional facilities and the very latest technology; this includes an Innovation Centre which has a full-size car simulator, 3D cinema, TV studio and radio station.  The smaller campus at Ruskington was rebuilt and completed in 2015 and provides additional outstanding accommodation. The Academy is rated ‘good’ by Ofsted and has secured three consecutive years of positive Progress 8.

St George’s Academy is also a leading member of the Sleaford Joint-Sixth Form (SJSF), a collaboration between St George’s Academy and the Robert Carre’s Trust serving over 700, 16 – 19 students in the local area.

The Principal is supported by an experienced leadership team and members of the Governing Body have a wide range of professional skills and knowledge and vast experience of school governance. 

The successful applicant will be an outstanding individual ready to take up the challenge of leading this excellent school and making a strong contribution to the community it serves.
