The appointment will be made without regard to age, gender or academic subject, and the precise role and responsibilities will be tailored to the strengths of the candidate who offers the most substantial overall contribution to the life of the school.

Winchester is a boys boarding school of 700 pupils. It was founded by William of Wykeham in 1382 and is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious schools. Chapel and religious observance have from the first been central to the college community, as has a strong choral tradition.
