Deputy Headteacher - William Lovell Church of England Academy


We’re delighted that you have decided to find out more about the crucial role of Deputy Headteacher at William Lovell Church of England Academy.

The Lincoln Anglican Academy Trust is a unique organisation that celebrates the individuality of every school whilst promoting an uncompromising belief in the power of collaboration and distinct Christian ethos to support all pupils and staff to be the best they can be. 

Established as a multi-academy trust by the Diocese of Lincoln in 2013, we’ve grown to serve 16 academies across three local authorities of Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. 

As our newest Deputy Headteacher, you will be joining a well-established and successful trust - ready to support your development. Like many of our schools, William Lovell serves an area of high deprivation. Our commitment to this community is resolute.  Having recently come out of Special Measures, where Ofsted highlighted that subjects such as English and mathematics are “improving rapidly”, it is clear that progress is underway (full Ofsted report here). We will look to you to as Deputy to work hand-in-hand with the recently appointed Headteacher to accelerate and embed this improvement further.

As a Trust, we work closely with our schools to provide high quality central capacity (around school improvement, HR, finance and health and safety) so that you can focus on the things that matter most – creating inspiring, inclusive and nurturing learning opportunities that will empower true transformation.

Within LAAT, we have a shared vision that schools serve their communities through excellence, exploration and encouragement within the love of God. For colleagues and I, this represents a personal and collective commitment, that every child and adult is supported to realise their full potential. 

In joining, you will find an organisation that is purposeful, determined and impassioned in its obligation to drive lasting impact. We invest in our team members, support aspiration and provide development pathways that you are unlikely to find anywhere else.

I would like to thank you for your interest in this exciting opportunity and hope you’re inspired to join us. 

I’d encourage you to make contact and find out more about who we are and how we work. Should you wish to speak directly, or have any questions, please get in touch.
