Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Permanent

The Governing Council is seeking to appoint a new Head of College who will succeed Jeremy Gladwin, upon his retirement after nine years of exceptional service.

Bishop’s Stortford College is a co-educational day and boarding school educating 1174 children aged 4 to 18. The College has three schools – the pre-prep, prep and senior schools – each with its own Head. The Head of Bishop’s Stortford College is both the Head of the Senior School as well as having overarching responsibility for the educational provision of the three schools.

The College is in fine health, and is poised for its next phase of development. This is a chance to work with a relatively new chair of governors and a high performing leadership team to set and deliver the strategic priorities for the College. In doing so the Head will create and sustain an ethos and culture which provides an inclusive and supportive environment enabling staff to work creatively and effectively and maximises the potential of the College. It is also hoped that the College will continue to be a significant contributor to the social fabric of the local community which it serves.

The role demands a strategic thinker who has vision and an inclusive leadership style. It will be critical that the person works collaboratively and is an exceptional communicator. The Council is looking for someone who will have the clarity of thought, resilience and personality needed to ensure the College continues on the upward trajectory it has enjoyed in recent years.

Saxton Bampfylde Ltd is acting as an employment agency advisor to Bishop’s Stortford College on this appointment. For further information about the role, including details about how to apply, please visit www.saxbam.com/appointments using reference CAXNB.
