Gentleness, hope, dignity, justice, companionship and excellence
Bellerive FCJ is a highly successful all-girls academy with a sixth form in Liverpool. The school is built on strong foundations and commitment to mission. It is a diverse community in an area of high deprivation and staff at the school are aware of this and strive to challenge disadvantage. The vacancy has arisen following the resignation of the present Headteacher following five years of successful leadership at the school.
For over 170 years Bellerive FCJ has been educating girls in Liverpool. The FCJ values of gentleness, hope, dignity, justice, companionship and excellence, permeate everything we do; indeed, in 2021, Ofsted commented that “Staff and pupils practise the school’s values: excellence, companionship, dignity, justice, hope and gentleness”.
Our aim is to follow the vision of Marie Madeleine d’Houet, the foundress of the Faithful Companions of Jesus. Marie Madeleine, was a woman of inspiration and courage, constantly searching to do good for others. We strive to instil in our students a zest for life, and a desire to use their talents and gifts in the service of others
Bellerive FCJ is a community where young people are given a clear vision for life, a vision which is rooted in the person and teachings of Jesus Christ, and which is faithful to the mission of the Catholic Church. The school is full of confident, creative, and fulfilled young people and staff.
Governors are seeking to appoint a candidate who can continue to build on the successes of the school, grow student numbers in the sixth form and ensure that Bellerive FCJ offers a complete education pathway from year 7 through to year 13.
The new headteacher will need to work with Governors, the FCJ Educational Trust and the wider community to ensure the school’s ongoing contribution and commitment to the Church’s mission of education.
The appointed candidate will.
- Be a practising Catholic, who will strive to uphold and develop strong spiritual and moral values throughout the whole school and wider community.
- Be a highly collaborative strategic leader with an ability to engage with a range of internal and external partners to further enhance school improvement.
- Be an inspirational leader with a clear vision for the future of the school, building on its current success.
- Be committed to professional development for self and others.
