Head of Lower School (Years 7-9)

Permanent and full time

For 1 September 2018

The Godolphin and Latymer School is one of the country’s leading independent day schools for girls, located on a six acre site in Hammersmith.  Our facilities are excellent and the girls are bright, talented, motivated and enthusiastic.

The school prides itself on the outstanding pastoral provision offered to each girl throughout her school career.  High academic performance is combined with very strong emphasis on nurturing the individual.  We achieve this as a result of the academic and pastoral sides of the school working together very successfully.  This collaboration is a hallmark of the supportive and encouraging learning environment for which Godolphin and Latymer is known.  The girls flourish under our care and are excellent achievers.

Due to retirement, a rare and exciting opportunity has arisen for a suitably qualified and experienced applicant to join us as a Head of Section, in the role of Head of Lower School (Years 7-9), from the start of the next academic year.  The Head of Lower School coordinates the work of three Deputy Heads of Lower School, each with specific responsibility for the three year groups in the section, and plays an essential role in the wider pastoral structure overseen by our Senior Deputy Head (Pastoral).

Further information about the pastoral programme, the school in general and this role, including the job description and person specification, can be found at www.godolphinandlatymer.com.

We will require the successful candidate to teach, on a reduced timetable, one of the subjects which we currently offer.

The salary will be commensurate with the post and will depend upon qualifications and experience.

Fully completed application forms must be returned to recruitment@godolphinandlatymer.com by noon on the closing date of 19 January 2018.  It is anticipated that a preliminary round of interviews will take place on 25 January 2018.
