Start date: September 2020 or, if possible, sooner
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Competitive
Contract term: Permanent

The Director of the International School of Monaco (ISM) seeks to make an exciting, new appointment of a Deputy Director Academic to give leadership to the academic life of the whole school and to bring the Senior Leadership team to five: the three Heads of School – Early Years up to Year 3 (210 pupils); Primary, Years 4-6 (150 pupils) and Senior, Years 7-13 (310 pupils) – and the Head of Wellbeing. In the future, the Heads of Departments in the Senior School will report to the Deputy Director Academic. She/he will work directly to the Director, deputise for him on academic matters and work collaboratively with the three Heads of School.

The ISM is an independent, co-educational, non-selective day school, founded 25 years ago and well established in the heart of Monaco. The 670 pupils are drawn from 50 countries and either live in Monaco or the surrounding villages on the Côte d'Azur. The teaching and learning are bilingual French/English up to the end of Year 6, but in the Senior School all lessons are taught in English and pupils are prepared for iGCSE and the IB Diploma. Academic results are strong, with many pupils proceeding to Higher Education. To enrich the academic learning, there is a full programme of co-curricular activities.

This post might suit an existing Head of Department aspiring to Headship, who wishes to gain experience of senior management in this attractive new post, where initiative and innovation can be demonstrated in this vibrant international school.

The Governors of the International School of Monaco will pay a generous salary plus a negotiable housing allowance, on top of which are several benefits.
