Due to the expansion of the Senior Team, we are seeking to appoint an additional talented, positive and forward-thinking Assistant Head to join the School.  We would be pleased to hear from applicants with experience and interest in either the Main School or Sixth Form Division of Education as flexibility exists to shape the position according to the successful candidate’s particular skills and interests.

Applicants should have leadership experience with a track record of impressive organizational and interpersonal skills.  Specific responsibilities will be Pastoral in nature and we are seeking candidates with a strong track record in the Pastoral field within a School.  Whilst this experience is our priority, we would also be interested to hear from candidates who can offer experience in one or more of the following areas (please note that these are not essential criteria for applicants, or necessarily a focus for this role, but they are areas of interest which may support the School’s development planning):

  • Curriculum timetabling;
  • Compiling, analyzing and reporting on School data;
  • Experience of working in or with business/commercial organizations;
  • Emerging technologies.

It is our intention to attach to the position additional whole School responsibilities which support the School’s development priorities and, as indicated above, which align with the skills, experience and interests of the candidate appointed.

The successful candidate will be able to offer creativity and imagination with the ability to motivate, challenge and inspire staff and students; combining professional integrity with high expectations of self and others.  He/she must have a genuine belief in the potential of all students and a commitment to promoting aspiration and achievement in the School.
