Headteacher - The Rubicon Centre

(Pupil Referral Service)


Dear Applicant,

Welcome to the Rubicon Centre, Pupil Referral Service.

On behalf of the Management Committee, thank you for your interest in the position of Headteacher.

We are a secondary Pupil Referral Service that provides full and part-time education and support for children and young people who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to access mainstream education.

An inclusive service, we pride ourselves on providing pupils with clear aspirations for the future. With high expectations and motivational teaching this gives pupils opportunities to succeed. Relationships between staff, pupils and families is at the centre of what we do. Providing this holistic approach to individuals is important in the development and resilience to succeed in the future.

Our curriculum is broad, balanced and supportive thus enabling pupils to develop spiritually, socially, morally, emotionally and intellectually. Staff work extremely hard to ensure all needs are met. We aim to help all our pupils to become confident, young adults.

Given the complexity of the emerging education landscape nationally and locally, we’re excited about future opportunities.

This is a unique opportunity for you to lead our school, developing its potential and building on our strengths, successes and achievements.

We very much welcome school visits. If you’d like the opportunity to visit, please email Steve Cooper at North Yorkshire County Council or call him on 01609 536578. Steve will also be happy to answer any questions you might have.

If you are a leader ready to meet these challenges, I look forward to receiving your application.

Yours sincerely,


Mark Barnett

Chair of Management Committee (Governing Body)
