Charterhouse is a successful and ambitious school in an inspiringly beautiful setting. Founded in 1611, it moved to its present magnificent 250 acre site near Godalming in 1872. The School has over 800 pupils aged between 13 and 18, all of whom, except for about 40 ‘day boarders’, are boarders.

Head of Business & Entrepreneurship

This is a wonderful opportunity for an exceptionally talented teacher of business who is looking to take the next step in developing their leadership career, particularly at a time when the School is making the exciting move to full coeducation.  

The Head of Business and Entrepreneurship will be an inspirational, innovative and ambitious leader, with a passion for teaching all aspects of business, and a desire to share this with our pupils within, and way beyond, our rich curriculum.  We are looking not just for an excellent teacher and classroom practitioner with unfailingly high academic standards, but also a big-thinking, creative and entrepreneurial leader who is known for their enthusiasm, proactivity and creative problem solving.  

You must also be genuinely prepared to take roles in the wider life of a boarding school, with the enthusiasm, skills and experience to take part in the School’s pastoral and co-curricular activities.

Whilst a good Honours degree relevant to the teaching aspects of the role is essential; experience of working beyond the education sector is desirable, as is a recognised teaching qualification, such as a PGCE.

Charterhouse offers a competitive salary and other benefits including  accommodation, contributory pension scheme through the Teachers' Pension Scheme, and membership of the School’s Sports Club.

This appointment will be subject to checks with the Disclosure and Barring Service and with past employers.
