Head of Prep 

This is a prestigious and exciting opportunity for a leader with a desire to make a difference for all pupils. You will have great scope to develop and design a curriculum which enhances the talents and abilities of all, as we seek to grow each child so that they achieve beyond expectation, and inspire us and one another in doing so. 

You will be an experienced Primary practitioner, either ready to move into Headship, working alongside our Principal in a supportive environment, or already experienced and looking for a new challenge. You will share our values to develop each child’s heart and hands, as well as their heads; and you will relish the challenge to extend your creative resources so that real progress is made for all pupils without the handrail of national SATs testing or selective Secondary school entry as the ultimate measure. 

The successful applicant will equally be at home as a warm leader in the playground with parents and pupils, as an inspiring presence at the front of the assembly hall and in the staffroom, as a critical friend in the classroom, and as a helpful interpreter of pupil progress and achievement data to make a meaningful difference. 

Gosfield is a small family School where you are free to teach and innovate in a gorgeous green environment, where everyone is treated with warm respect and where everyone strives to reach and exceed their personal best. 

We wish to appoint for a start in the Summer Term 2019.  

Please send your application form to Mrs Sara Bowles, Office Manager (s.bowles@gosfieldschool.org.uk or 01787 474040) 

Closing date for applications: Noon Tuesday 20 November 2018 

Interviews: w/b 3 December 2018
