As a 7-18 State Boarding School, we seek an excellent candidate for the position of Deputy Head of Sixth Form. Our Sixth Form is a thriving, diverse community with 200 students which prepares future leaders with a global outlook.
The main aim of the Sixth Form is to ensure that our young people receive an education for life and are equipped to follow their own path to success. Some students have university as their ultimate goal, and others plan to enter the world of work or undertake a higher degree apprenticeship after the completion of their Sixth Form Studies. Whatever a student’s own goals may be, the Sixth Form team aims to instil an aspirational mind-set that encourages them to aim high.
This holistic, individualised approach has led to student success. Many have gone on to study at some of the country’s most prestigious universities, including the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, London School of Economics and University College London. Others have secured places in competitive higher degree apprenticeship schemes for organisations such as Unilever, Nestlé and the Royal Horticultural Society. The Sixth Form team is an integral part of this successful student journey.
The Deputy Head of Sixth Form will have a specific responsibility for either Year 12 or Year 13 and be line managed by the Director of Sixth Form.
