Sutton Valence School, a leading English co-educational independent day and boarding school, in association with Hopeland International Kindergarten Group, a successful, Chinese-owned independent education provider, has opened a new co-educational, international and Chinese student preparatory school for 7-12 year-olds in Tianjin, China’s fourth largest city, in September 2017.
Following a leadership restructure now that the school is established, SVS seeks to appoint an experienced school leader, familiar with the UK independent schools sector, to bring HIK’s and SVS’s ambitious plans for an exceptional centre of excellence to fruition.
The Principal will lead a Senior Leadership team, including International and Chinese Deputies, in providing a stimulating and nurturing learning environment combining the very best of British and Chinese education, implementing the Sutton Valence ethos and being responsible for maintaining high standards in all aspects – academic, co-curricular and leadership development.
The Founding Principal of the School will need to be both an experienced education leader and an inspirational and energetic self-starter; not only capable of leading the School to long-term success but also of playing a very hands-on role in further developing the school.
For further details, including how to apply, please contact the SVS International Coordinator, Dr Mike Walker FRSA, CEO of Pomegranate Education Limited, on email@example.com
