Are you the leader of our next-generation school?
Santa Sophia Catholic College* will be opening on the site of Our Lady of the Angels, Rouse Hill in 2018 and we are looking for a dynamic foundation principal leader to establish an innovative Catholic learning community from preschool to post school.
This is a rare opportunity to work collaboratively with teachers, students and families to create a next-generation school to respond to the needs of learners in today's world.
Santa Sophia will be part of the Parramatta Diocesan system of schools and will be a school that delivers quality teaching and learning. Students will have the opportunity to learn from partnerships forged with academics, tertiary institutions, business and community partners. Learning in this environment requires students and staff to be connected locally and globally.
As the principal leader, you will be responsible, with the staff, for leading a high performing Catholic school that is innovative and responsive to the learning needs of each student. As the leader in this school, you will be required to:
- deliver the evangelising mission of the Church
- be strategic, innovative, inspiring and capable of leading and managing change
- be an outstanding educator with a track record of leading excellence in learning
- ensure continuous improvement of each child's learning
- lead a collaborative community where each voice is heard and recognised
- establish effective structures and enablers to support contemporary schooling
When fully occupied, Santa Sophia will accommodate over 2,000 learners and will incorporate early learning, K-12, out of school hours care, a learning needs hub and post-school options.
Register your expression of interest by telling us (in writing or digital presentation) how you would lead this school community and a summary of your educational background and professional experience; and three referees who can attest to your commitment to Catholic education and expertise. There will be a negotiated remuneration and professional benefits package.
