The Proprietors of Saint Pierre School invite applications for the role of Head to commence in January, 2019.

The role comes about due to the semi-retirement of the current Headmaster, who will remain at the school but in a less active role. The role could suit a Deputy Head seeking their first headship or a serving Head looking for a different challenge in a beautiful part of the world. The role will involve some teaching and experience in preparing children for entrance examinations would be seen as desirable. This really is a wonderful opportunity for the right person to lead the school into the next phase of its successful development. The chosen candidate will enjoy considerable autonomy but will still enjoy the experienced support of both Proprietors and the Deputy Head.

Saint Pierre School is an ISA one form entry prep school of 120 children aged two and a half to eleven, a good proportion of whom move on to grammar school at the end of Year 6. The school’s greatest strength is its wonderful family ethos and this must be maintained by the new incumbent.

A competitive salary would be available along with greatly reduced tuition fees for any dependents and other potential benefits.

If you are interested in applying, either contact the school (01702 474164) to arrange an informal viewing or send your CV and a brief covering letter either to the school or email to info@saintpierreschool.com, for the attention of Mr. C. Perkins MA (Headmaster). Further information about the role and the school is available to interested parties. The closing date is Friday 25 May, 2018. A ‘flavour’ of the school can be obtained by viewing the school’s website at www.saintpierreschool.net.

We look forward to discussing this exciting opportunity with you over the phone and / or meeting you in person in the not too distant future.
