Director of Marketing & Communications

Wolverhampton Grammar SchoolWolverhampton

Founded in 1512, Wolverhampton Grammar School is one of the oldest schools in the country. As a selective, co-educational, and socially diverse independent school of 750+ students aged 4-18 years, it enjoys an outstanding reputation. Award-winning and judged “Excellent” by the Independent Schools Inspectorate, this is a fantastic opportunity to join a nationally recognised, forward-thinking school.

The School now seeks an inspirational and dynamic leader, with senior level expertise in marketing, internal and external engagement and communications, to join the Senior Management Team following 7 years’ exceptional service by the outgoing postholder. The appointee will lead a community of professional support staff and teachers who excel in delivering an individual, personalised learning experience.

This leadership position will suit an experienced and innovative professional with a proven track record within a marketing and communications related context. The appointee will possess excellent relationship-building and leadership skills, as well as creative marketing abilities and the entrepreneurial instincts to ensure Wolverhampton Grammar School continues to thrive.

Experience of working within an educational environment is not essential.  The role would also suit an exceptional individual with similar sales, marketing or communications experience gained in the commercial or charitable sector, but who has an instinctive feel for the independent school market combined with the relevant transferable skills to undertake this complex and fulfilling role.

Completed applications should be uploaded at, quoting reference 5508. The closing date for applications is 08:30 GMT on Thursday 6 January 2022.
