Applications are welcomed for the position of Head of Junior School at North London Collegiate School, Jeju. Working closely with the wider leadership team, you will ensure that we continue to thrive and improve, offering the very best education and a seamless all-through journey for our students.
The school opened its doors in 2011, established in partnership between North London Collegiate School UK and an agency of the South Korean government. The school – with its excellent outcomes, dedicated staff and world-class facilities - has proven to be an extremely popular choice with parents and opened its Junior School in response to heavy demand for places. Results throughout the school are formidable and students matriculate to some of the best universities in the world. It is an exceptional education based on high academic standards and a deep commitment to providing a well-rounded education. The successful candidate will be an inspiring and motivated leader who believes that academic excellence and outstanding pastoral care go hand in hand. An experienced leader, you will help fulfil the potential of our dynamic staff, embed our recent curriculum reforms and lead the Junior School in a new, exciting phase of its development.
The Junior School is flourishing and set to grow: plans have been agreed to increase the capacity of the Junior School. The next leader will be instrumental in managing this development, ensuring a smooth transition and maximising the opportunities afforded the expanded school phase.
The school is set in a striking location. Jeju Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, 130km off the southern coast of the Korean peninsula, is often described as one of Asia’s best kept secrets. With its temperate climate, stunning natural scenery, array of rare and endangered wildlife and welcoming beaches, it is a fascinating and breathtaking environment in which to live.
We provide first-class professional development both through NLCS Jeju and the established NLCS educational community. This is an exceptional opportunity to join a leading international school in a strategically important role in which you will make a vital contribution.
