Due to retirement, we are seeking an inspirational Head of English responsible to the Principal for the management and development of English at St Gabriel’s. The Head of English should be able to provide strong, but consultative, leadership and thus ensure the effective delivery of English throughout the school.
The successful candidate will be expected to maintain, and further develop, the high profile of English at St Gabriel's.
St Gabriel’s is an independent day school founded in 1929 which incorporates Sandleford, our EYFS provision; at present there are approximately 500 pupils in the School. Sandleford Priory dates back to the early Middle Ages and is set in a beautiful Grade 1 listed building within 54 acres of Capability Brown parkland, which provides a gracious setting in which to work.
St Gabriel’s pupils thrive through strong, effective pastoral support; our broad curriculum and range of activities afford each pupil the opportunity to enjoy success according to their particular talents. St Gabriel’s is no ordinary school; parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils.
We value our staff and, as such, you can expect to work in a friendly, supportive environment and enjoy the benefits of ongoing professional development.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Any offer of appointment will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
