(also known as Director of the Other Half)

The Headmaster is seeking to appoint a creative and dynamic individual to oversee and develop our renowned ‘Other Half’  (Abingdon’s term for its co-curricular/extra-curricular provision) - a programme that boasts over 140 activities and sports.  This is a very significant  role at Abingdon and the postholder will serve on the Abingdon Management Team - an extension of the Senior Leadership Team.

It is a role that will be particularly attractive to teachers who are looking to move into whole-school leadership of a large school (Abingdon has 1000+ boys) and would be an excellent stepping stone for those wanting to move into Deputy Headship of a major school, and perhaps Headship, in the future.

It is expected that the successful candidate will be able to contribute in a major way themselves to the Other Half but it is also important that they show themselves to be a strong classroom teacher, albeit on a substantial timetable reduction.  No particular subject is sought, but the subject offered needs to be within Abingdon’s curriculum.  The School offers several attractive benefits.  Accommodation may be available.

Closing date:  Monday 25 February 2019 (midday)

Video interview stage:  w/c 4 March 2019

Interview date:   Tuesday 12 or Wednesday 13 March 2019
