Box Hill School is a co-educational community of 425 girls and boys aged 11 to 18, whose educational ideals and practice are designed to maximise the potential of each student in a holistic international environment. The school follows the philosophy of Kurt Hahn, founder of Round Square: while placing academic work at the heart of a school, Hahn stressed the importance of an all-round education as a preparation for life based on six key ideals.  

The Governors, Staff and children of our school wish to appoint a Deputy Head (Academic) to work with the Headmaster to help shape the future success and development of the school.
