Situated in a stunning 22-acre rural setting in East Sussex, Skippers Hill is a non-selective, independent preparatory school where individuality is cherished, and children are given the space to flourish in every sense. High academic achievement, social confidence and happiness are fostered through a nurturing, family environment, broad-ranging curriculum and a bespoke programme of outdoor learning for all ages. Skippers’ pupils are valued by local senior schools as well-rounded, confident individuals with a strong sense of community spirit.
As part of the Bellevue Education group, Skippers Hill benefits from shared best practice and focused training programmes covering all aspects of education. The school also receives specialist support in the areas of educational advice, finance, human resources and marketing, enabling the Head to focus on the most important aspects of their work: delivering an education which enables every child to reach their full potential.
Bellevue Education is now seeking to appoint a new Head to succeed Mark Hammond following his appointment to the headship of Bede’s Preparatory School from September 2020. Reporting to the Education Director, the Head will lead with vision, inspiration and initiative in creating a climate which enables every member of the school and nursery community to flourish.
This is an outstanding opportunity for someone with proven leadership qualities, imagination and a genuine commitment to delivering the very highest educational standards to guide this already excellent school through the next stage of its development.
