The Ferrers School Aspire, Achieve, Acclaim

    Letter from Head Teacher

    Dear Colleague

    Thank you for your enquiry about a post at The Ferrers School.  I enclose an application form together with further details of the post and background information about the school.

    The Ferrers is a popular, comprehensive school with a strong, positive reputation in the local community.  It is situated in the attractive East Northamptonshire rural market town of Higham Ferrers.  Facilities and buildings are of a high standard.  We aim to provide a supportive and thriving educational community in which both students and staff can grow and develop.

    The school has experienced fluctuating exam success in recent years with a positive trend of improving student attainment but at too slow a rate and with outcomes that are still below where they should be. There is a clear agenda for increasing rates of student progress and raising levels of attainment.

    I am keen to appoint enthusiastic, committed staff who are prepared to give that little extra to raise standards and contribute to whole school improvement. 

    We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expect all staff to share this commitment.  This post will be subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure and reference and medical checks.

    If you are interested in applying for the post, please return the application form with a covering letter as soon as possible.  I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours sincerely

    Jonathan Giles
    Head Teacher
