This is an exciting opportunity for an exceptionally talented and ambitious leader; a strong team and foundations are already in place and it’s the right time for a fresh approach to move The Rawlett School on to the next stage of its journey.

The successful applicant will build on our successes, maintain and strengthen our outcomes for students. Like us, you will be passionately committed to inspiring young people to make their best better.

You must be ambitious and able to:

  • Have incredibly high expectations for yourself and others
  • Be excited by being part of a dynamic team
  • Commit to our children and accept that only the best is good enough
