Contract term: Permanent

Woodhouse Grove School is a co-educational, independent HMC day and boarding school committed to helping young people to be the best they can be. Currently educating more than 1,000 pupils aged 3 – 18, Woodhouse Grove is a warm and unpretentious school with traditional values and exciting ambitions for the future. 

Situated on a beautiful 70 acre rural campus in West Yorkshire, the School is proud of its outstanding facilities which include an impressive 25m competition swimming pool, state-of-the-art sports and performing arts centre and a purpose-built music and drama facility.

From its foundation in 1812, Woodhouse Grove has been a Christian school in the Methodist tradition and today is one of thirteen member schools that form the Methodist Independent Schools Trust (MIST).

This opportunity has arisen as a result of the retirement of Mr David Wood after 13 years of outstanding leadership and service as the School’s principal deputy. This is a crucially important post responsible for driving the School forward and working with the Headmaster as the lead Deputy on the delivery of the School’s exciting development plans.
