The Directors and Governors of High March School are seeking to appoint a new Head from September 2019 to succeed Mrs Sue Clifford, who will retire after 15 years at the School.
High March is a thriving Independent Preparatory day school for girls aged from rising 3 to 11 years old. Situated in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, the School was founded in 1926 and now welcomes over 300 pupils, including 8 boys in Nursery.
The School is renowned for both its high academic achievement and its strong identity as a family school, which nurtures and promotes values of kindness and friendship. Celebrated for its excellence in pastoral care, the guiding tenet of High March is the belief that every child should be truly valued for their contribution and encouraged to grow in confidence.
The Directors and Governors now seek to appoint a charismatic Head who is passionate about teaching and learning and who is particularly committed to providing excellent education for girls. They will be looking for an energetic, eloquent, innovative and empathetic leader who relishes the interface with parents as this is a school that is proud of its family heritage and the close links it has in the local community.
The successful candidate will have a background of leadership and senior management in the Preparatory/Primary sector and will embrace the special ethos of the School, with the vision to take it into this next exciting phase. A clear insight into the local State Grammar/Independent Senior school transfer context is desirable.
