Overview – 

Lathallan School is located on the North-East coast of Scotland on the fringes of the fishing village of Johnshaven south of Aberdeen. With 60 acres that stretch from woodland to seashore, the school has an enviable reputation for outdoor learning provision. The Junior section of the school caters for pupils from the ages of 4 to 12 (J1-7). 

Following on from the successful leadership team of the last 15 years, the Board of Directors now seeks to appoint a Junior Head with the skills to maximise the potential of the School’s exciting environment and enhancing Lathallan’s reputation for educational rigour and achievement across the curriculum. The Junior pupil body is just under 70 and is supported by 7 full-time members of staff as well as a number of subject specialists (Science, PE, Modern Languages, Art, ICT, Learning Support and Music).

The new Head of Junior School will be part of the Senior Leadership Team of the whole school to allow for consistency of approach but they will also have the freedom to lead specific Junior School developments and manage a team of dedicated teachers on a daily basis. 

Candidates should have senior leadership experience and be in tune with the varying demands of leading in the independent sector.

Lathallan is celebrating its 90th Anniversary this year.
