Head of Sixth Form Admissions & Outreach
The successful applicant will be a highly effective and efficient communicator, with exceptional organisational skills and a clear vision of how best to achieve the stated aims of the school, whilst remaining open to new ideas and developments. The Head of Sixth Form Admissions & Outreach will have a thorough understanding of the Sixth Form independent market, and will be proactive and imaginative in terms of recruiting able candidates to the school, from both the UK and overseas
There are high ambitions for the school and the successful applicant will join a highly motivated and passionate team, working in a friendly atmosphere which moves with great momentum and energy, without forsaking the personal touch.
Our Sixth Form is the subject of intense media attention because of our pioneering work in advocating a ‘later start’ for older teenagers; the successful candidate must of course share this commitment.
Reports to: Headmaster
The Head of Sixth Form Admissions & Outreach will need to be committed to the active recruitment of candidates, and to the promotion of the Sixth Form generally. He or she will support the Y12 and Y13 form tutors and SLT members in the running of the Sixth Form; it is however expected that up to half of each week will be spent on recruitment of pupils and the marketing/promotion of the Sixth Form.
This post could be a non-teaching position, but ideally the Head of Sixth Form Admissions & Outreach will also be doing some teaching at A level (either Y12 or Y13, or both), in which case he or she must have a proven track record of excellent results.
