Head of Sixth Form

Clifton High SchoolBristol, City of

Clifton High School is an academically selective, co-educational, independent day school for 570 pupils aged 3-18 years. Situated on a beautiful Bristol site, we deliver an education underpinned by a strong pastoral and family ethos. We value individuality and positively celebrate diversity and inclusion in every area of the school.

We are looking to appoint a strong academic, dynamic, ambitious and inspirational leader, with the ability to make the last two years of a student’s life at Clifton High something truly special. This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to lead our Sixth Form and play a pivotal role in shaping, communicating and implementing the School’s strategy, as we prepare to move the Sixth Form into new premises.

We would like to hear from an outstanding classroom practitioner, who can demonstrate success of strong management of people and systems. This role is about working with young people, inspiring them to be the best they can be, to realise their individual brilliance. Charisma and energy are an absolute must! A working knowledge of tertiary education will be essential to help our students reach their potential. In recent years this has been to destinations as diverse as Oxford and Cambridge, apprenticeships and the world of work.  

A commitment to the wider education of pupils through extra-curricular activities is an expectation. The successful candidate will enjoy contributing to an excellent working environment for pupils and staff.
