An exciting opportunity has arisen for an inspiring, creative and innovative leader to join our dynamic St Ninians Primary School team. The successful candidate will be a highly skilled, highly motivated practitioner who, as Depute Headteacher, will provide strategic leadership and management of St Ninians Primary School.

St Ninians Primary School is situated one mile south of the centre of the historic City of Stirling. Originally a village school built in 1875, it was first extended in 1892 and later in the early 60s. In October 2016, we moved into a brand new, state of the art building. Our new school has capacity for 16 classes, a large Dining/Multi-Purpose Hall, a large Games Hall and breakout spaces. The nursery has its own amazing space for our youngest learners to grow and develop. The school currently has a roll of approximately 420 children across 16 classes, and an extended year nursery with space for 32 children in each session.

Our staff embrace the philosophy of ‘Getting It Right for Every Child’ and are committed to providing positive learning experiences and improving outcomes for all our children. We promote a values based culture of nurture and aspiration, and bring our vision and values to life through our Curriculum Rationale and school vision and values.
