Are you seeking an opportunity to play a major role in one of the most successful international schools in Asia? The Deputy Head of Primary (DHoP), along with the Head of Primary and three Assistant Heads, form the Primary School Leadership Team (PSLT). This team leads the strategic and operational workings of the school. The role requires the successful candidate to understand the practice of leadership as well as having the ability to deliver on specific leadership and management roles and responsibilities. Significant autonomy to oversee and lead a large portfolio will be given to the right candidate.

These include;

  • Leading on core learning areas (e.g. assessment, student welfare, professional development, performance management, etc.)
  • Line-management of Year Leaders
  • Oversight of several operational aspects (e.g. cover, duties, calendar, handbooks, etc.)
  • Input into common PSLT responsibilities (e.g. recruitment, induction, development planning, etc.)

Beyond this, the DHoP has direct responsibility for leading the school in the absence of the Head of Primary. Candidates are encouraged to highlight any relevant experience as well as express any particular areas of interest. There is a small teaching commitment, which is at the discretion of the Head of Primary/Principal. You will deliver an adapted UK National Curriculum that is constantly evolving to meet current educational thinking and our international context.

Nord Anglia Education

Nord Anglia Education is the world’s leading premium schools organisation. We are a fast-paced and growing family of 47 international schools in China, Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia and North America, providing outstanding education to over 39,000 students from preschool through to the end of secondary education. Our schools are united by one philosophy—we are ambitious for our students, our people and our family of schools.

Each Nord Anglia Education school is unique in character and designed to meet the needs of its community. We believe that being part of our family of 47 schools gives each school a special advantage. Working together, we can achieve more than we can individually. We also create unique opportunities to benefit our students and people such as the Global Campus, Nord Anglia University, and our collaborations with The Juilliard School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and King’s College London.

This means you’ll be joining an international team in which thoughts and ideas are shared around the globe as we strive to make our schools the very best in the world. You will have the security and opportunities that come from being part of a high quality global organisation dedicated to education and professional development.

About you

As a qualified teacher, you will be a fluent English speaker, familiar with the UK curriculum and confident working with students from diverse cultural and language backgrounds. You will be comfortable teaching students of all abilities across the complete Primary age range, including Early Years Foundation Stage. You will be an excellent communicator and confident with technology; someone who gets on well with colleagues, students and parents. Amongst other things, you’ll be well organised, have a good sense of humour and will want to participate fully in the extra-curricular aspects of school life as well as the classroom.

In return for your passion to deliver the highest quality education you will enjoy a more than competitive salary, accommodation provided by us, an annual flight allowance, health insurance and places in the school for your children. You’ll have the opportunity to live in and work in one of Asia’s largest, most spectacular and most vibrant cities.

Here at the British International School Shanghai, Puxi, we are a close knit team who are proud of our school and community. We educate over 1450 young people of more than 50 nationalities, preparing them for futures as global citizens in the years ahead.
