The successful candidate will have a proven track record as a classroom teacher, possess excellent inter-personal and communication skills and will be able to develop a strategic approach to the development of the Curriculum and cross-curricular opportunities.

As Faculty Head, they will lead a team of committed and talented group of subject co-ordinators and teachers with a proven track record of success at A Level and GCSE and will be capable of implementing cross-departmental policies and consistency where expedient, whilst still retaining the individual identities of the subjects.
