S/he will be responsible for advising the School on the appropriate strategic direction and for the development and implementation of a marketing communications strategy. This is therefore a demanding and wide-ranging post. It is not the intention to finalise a detailed job description at this stage, but it will be for the successful candidate to agree with the Headmaster a definitive job description, within the scope of the overall responsibilities outlined, during his/her first year in post. It is anticipated that the role will evolve over the coming years to suit the particular strengths of the successful candidate and to complement those of SLT colleagues.

On the site of Embley Park, the home of Florence Nightingale, the school sits at the heart of Romsey community’s history. Romsey is an important commuter town and is a very popular place to live because of its excellent facilities, its charming and busy town centre and superb communications: very close proximity to the M3 and M27 and only an 80-minute train journey into London. In the locality there are a number of good primary and preparatory schools which act as important feeder schools to HCS.
