Deputy Head (Academic)

Kingswood Senior SchoolBath and North East Somerset

Kingswood offers an inclusive boarding and day community that is free of pretension and balances academic rigour, strength in the arts and sport, traditional values and outstanding pastoral care with a forward-thinking, can-do approach. Both the Prep School (nine months - 11 years) and the Senior School (11 - 18 years) offer a broad, holistic education, in which pupils are encouraged to develop self-assurance and high levels of personal motivation. 

Candidates for this role at the Senior School will be passionate about pedagogy and curriculum development, and have a track record of having developed academic provision in a management/leadership role. Candidates will enjoy working collaboratively and being part of an ambitious yet supportive and welcoming Foundation leadership team and Senior School senior management team. 

The successful candidate will have an obvious love of teaching and be an able practitioner. They will have a proven commitment to all-round education, with evidence of having delivered in an academic leadership role and they will bring ideas and ambition for the academic life of the School. They will also be committed to excellence in all aspects of school life and will have a management style which will accord with the School’s strong sense of community. Whilst applications from those who already have senior management experience are welcomed, the School is also keen to encourage applications from those for whom this would be their first senior leadership role.
