Founded in 2009, Faraday is an independent primary school for girls and boys aged 4-11 in East London, located in the inspirational and magical setting of Trinity Buoy Wharf, close to Canary Wharf and London's financial district, in the heart of the Docklands. 

Faraday is a full-sized, single form entry school, with 105 children on roll currently. We expect substantial growth over the next few years, as a result of new property developments in the surrounding area.  This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious Head Teacher to build on the foundations as we aim to develop the school into a two form entry school.  We are looking for someone who can lead the team with a practical “can-do attitude” and can grow with the school.    

Faraday School is part of the New Model School Company, managed by a CEO, Board of Directors and an Advisory Board.  As well as an effective leader, we are also looking for someone with business acumen and an entrepreneurial approach who can contribute to Advisory Board meetings and make an effective contribution to the running of the whole organisation.       

We welcome applications from experienced Head Teachers as well as ambitious Deputies who can demonstrate excellent leadership, management and communication skills and drive the NMS vision of making high quality independent primary education available to as many children as possible.  We are particularly interested in applicants who have worked with varied parent groups, preferably in the independent school sector, and have recent experience of working in a UK school. 

The postholder will have support from the current NMS Executive Head Teacher and the Acting Head, as well as other members of the school's highly enthusiastic Senior Leadership Team.
