Thurrock’s headteachers and principals are committed to raising aspirations, expectations and achievements and to transforming the lives of young people. It is the leaders of the schools in Thurrock that make success a reality, by influencing their staff and local authority and by driving further development.
Thurrock has made significant and rapid progress in recent years and a large proportion of our schools are now good or outstanding. However, the challenge for leaders now is to maintain this and improve performance further still.
For those looking to progress in their careers the investment going into Thurrock makes it an attractive prospect. £100 million will be invested in our schools. Due to this large growth and investment Thurrock will require 6 new schools in the borough over the next few years. 3 free schools are in the process of being built and a further 3 are in the planning stage. This expansion will increase the number of teacher, middle and senior leaders required in Thurrock.
