Thornleigh Salesian College is a large, friendly, Voluntary Aided 11-18 Catholic school, under the Trusteeship of the Salesians of Don Bosco, which welcomes students from across the north of Bolton and beyond. Our community is one in which we aim for our students to be valued, loved and cherished in a positive atmosphere where every person is known, loved and given the support and guidance they need to fully become the people they are called to be.

We have an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and inspirational leader to join our ambitious school as the new Headteacher. We wish to appoint a practising Catholic Headteacher with a strong personal faith and the vision and leadership to build and develop our school, helping us to continue to live Don Bosco’s dream of valuing every young person and enabling them to reach their full potential through education. We invite you to join our Salesian family so that we can keep our tradition at the very heart of everything we do.

You will work alongside a highly focused and driven Leadership Team who share a genuine care, love and respect for all our school community.

You will lead exceptional staff in continually striving for excellence in order that our children know that they are loved.
