Oundle School is one of the country’s leading HMC co-educational boarding and day schools and enjoys a strong reputation for excellence in every aspect of the education it offers, within and beyond the classroom. All teaching staff contribute to the co-curriculum according to their skills and interest.
This post replaces the role of Senior Master, reflecting its development over recent years. It is of vital strategic and operational importance to the education of our pupils and the development of the school. The postholder is responsible for the line management of all aspects of the Co-curriculum. It is therefore a significant leadership and management role, and as such the postholder sits on the School’s Leadership Team. The person appointed will be expected to teach a reduced timetable.
The Deputy Head Co-curriculum is responsible, in consultation with the Head, for setting the strategic direction for the School in all aspects for the non-academic education offered by the School. Working with others, s/he is tasked with ensuring excellence across all co-curricular departments and ensuring the smooth running of the School through sound oversight of the administration.
By its nature, and in line with the expectations of senior leadership, the work of the postholder is not confined exclusively to term times.
Oundle is a historic market town in Northamptonshire famous for its beautiful Georgian streets and impressive limestone buildings. The town has a spirited cultural life, with an annual international festival, literature festival, and frequent performances of nationally touring shows at the School’s Stahl Theatre.
