Following the present post-holder's promotion to headship, Harrow Shanghai is looking to appoint a dynamic, highly-skilled and inspiring new Deputy Head from August 2020.  He/She will have wide-ranging strategic input into, and leadership of, the School's continued delivery of excellence across all facets of the Harrow educational experience and across all phases - Early Years, Pre-prep, Prep and Senior Schools.

This exciting opportunity within one of the world's most energetic, cosmopolitan and diverse 21st century cities, is very well suited to present senior leaders both in the UK and overseas who have the necessary experience, skills, values and ambition to not only reinforce the School's very high standards and reputation, but to build upon them further.  

The role is an ideal platform for future headship and the successful candidate can expect to receive all of the support, professional development and guidance necessary to make certain they are fully enabled to move on to the position of Head in the years to come. 

Candidates who have leadership backgrounds in the realms of pastoral care, academia, or both combined, are equally encouraged to apply. Furthermore, the role would suit those who have senior, primary or all-through school leadership experience.  

Working at Harrow is a delight.  The pupils are engaged, aspirational and hard working, their parents are highly supportive and the staff are committed and close-knit.  The community is strong.  Pupils achieve highly both within and outside of the classroom and go on to enter many of the world's most competitive universities, including Oxbridge.

The successful candidate can expect a generous salary, a performance-related bonus, accommodation, medical and flight benefits and an unusual 100% tuition fees remission for up to two dependents (50% for any further children thereafter).  

Moreover, working within the highly prestigious Harrow Group of schools, which works very closely with  Harrow London and is expanding rapidly, will provide an ideal opportunity for career development and promotion.
