Vacancy: QKA Principal

Thank you for taking an interest in Queen Katharine Academy and we extend a warm welcome to all prospective candidates.

Queen Katharine Academy is a wonderful Academy with a strong sense of community in
Peterborough. Its modern building and facilities opened in 2007 and the culture, ethos and
learning environment are exceptional. It has been on a journey of improvement since joining the Trust in February 2016 and the Trustees now find ourselves in the exciting position of looking for a new Principal who will lead this Academy within the Thomas Deacon Education Trust.

Teaching and learning is at the heart of everything we do and every decision we take: we
consistently ask ‘How will this benefit our learners?’ Our teachers strive for constant improvement and are encouraged to innovate and do things differently. This opportunity will allow you to bring your abilities and experience to the role which will help Queen Katharine Academy progress even more to being a securely ‘good school’.
