The Governors of Scarborough College invite applications for the position of Head following the recent appointment of Mr Charles Ellison as Head Master of Harrow School, Shanghai. Ranked as a Top 3 UK Small Independent School by The Telegraph in 2017, and a Top 50 UK Independent School by The Times, the appointed candidate will be inheriting a school that is in excellent health and that has an ambitious vision for its future.
The position offers an exciting opportunity to build on a very high level of recent success including record public exam results, a significantly increased pupil roll, an expanded boarding community and a substantial investment into the College's infrastructure.
The College, founded in 1896, is a delightful and rewarding school in which to work with motivated children, supportive parents, a very committed staff body, superb facilities and a glorious location just five minutes from the beach.
With a £4 million programme of refurbishment and extension of its boarding houses recently underway and a £2 million investment into new sports facilities on the horizon, the post-holder will be joining the College at one of the most exciting times in its history.
The North Yorkshire area with its coastline, national parks and market towns is a beautiful location in which to live and work; the quality of life is high and the cost of living low.
The successful candidate will enjoy a competitive salary, a performance-related annual bonus and many further benefits. He/She is expected to take up the position either in January or April 2019.
The closing date for applications is 16.00 on Monday 28 May.
