This is an exciting opportunity to lead and care for the youngest pupils at Bloxham school at a strategic level. The post holder will have oversight of the academic and pastoral provision of the Lower School (1st and 2nd Form). It would be ideally suited to someone aspiring to Deputy Headship. The Head of Lower school is also the Head of the Lower School Boarding House and is assisted by an experienced staff team.
Bloxham School is an independent, co-educational boarding and day school for students aged 11 to 18, situated in the heart of Bloxham village in north Oxfordshire. The school was founded in 1860 by the Revered Philip Egerton and continues to provide a secure, friendly environment for its cohort of around 400 students, whilst offering facilities and opportunities worthy of a school of double its size. Bloxham is a smaller HMC school, but it has big ambitions and a strong ethos. The individual matters at Bloxham and the expectation is that every child will flourish. A Bloxham education is underpinned by its five Hallmarks:
A Passion for Learning
A Balanced Curriculum
A Gold Standard of Pastoral Care
The Development of Character
Main points of entry are at 11+, 13+ and 16+. Those students joining at 11+ spend two years in Bloxham’s Lower School. In small, co-educational tutor groups, they are guided through a broad curriculum and activities programme, as we start laying the foundations of a Bloxham education.
