Lomond School is a co-educational independent school, for children aged 3 to 18 years, positioned in the elegant suburbs of the coastal town of Helensburgh located only 10 minutes from Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

At Lomond School we believe passionately that education should be about supporting our young people to develop and grow, both academically and personally, as rounded individuals with strong values who are ultimately prepared to embark confidently and successfully on their life beyond Lomond School.

We provide small class sizes, an extensive programme of extra-curricular activities, attention to the individual and a strong record of academic achievement. All aspects of development are accorded importance, be they academic, musical, dramatic, sporting or in wider outdoor activities.

We are looking to appoint an exceptional individual to take on the role of Bursar. The Bursar reports to the Principal for all day-to-day matters, and is accountable to the Governing Body, via the Chair of Governors, for the effective conduct of financial affairs, sound business management and administration, and the material state of the premises. The Bursar is a part of the School Leadership Team and, as such, will influence the school’s strategic direction and priorities.

The successful candidate would ideally have:

  • A degree.

  • Strong financial and commercial background.

  • An excellent track record in senior leadership including the effective management of staff, the efficient operation of high-quality services, and the successful management of projects.

  • A demonstrable capacity to contribute strategically to the wider development of an organisation, whilst simultaneously retaining a strong grasp of operational detail.

  • A successful track record of working in schools, higher education, charities or medium size enterprises.


This is a full-time role, to include school holidays and has a varied and interesting scope including finance, procurement, HR and Estate Management.
