Deputy Head - Whole School (Pupil Welfare)  

Beachborough is a leading co-educational Independent Preparatory school located on the borders of Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire. With a current pupil roll of 380 children from 2 ½ to 13 years of age and strong waiting lists for places, our school is in great shape with very exciting plans for future development. 

We are currently seeking to appoint a new whole school Deputy Head with responsibility for Pupil Welfare for September 2019.

  • Are you looking for a new challenge as Deputy Head of a thriving Preparatory School for children from 2 ½ to 13 years of age? 
  • Are you an ambitious, forward thinking, energetic, educational leader? 
  • Can you motivate, inspire and lead children, staff and parents in an environment of high support, challenge, care and reward? 
  • Are you a self-starter, hungry to make a ‘real difference’ in the future lives of children? 
  • Are you looking for an exciting new leadership opportunity that will be professionally invigorating, challenging and rewarding? 
  • Are you interested in the development of children as ‘world ready’ learners and global citizens? 

If this excites you, we would like to hear from you.
