Stonyhurst is a Catholic Jesuit, HMC (Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference) independent boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 3 to 18. At the College, there are almost 500 pupils aged 13-18, over two thirds of whom are boarders. At Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall, the adjacent preparatory school, there are almost 300 pupils aged 3-13.
Stonyhurst College is at an exciting time in its history. This is a unique opportunity for an innovative, energetic and highly driven professional to have complete oversight over a coeducational year group at Stonyhurst (both boarding and day). The Head of Playroom will move through the years with his/her playroom and so develop a close relationship with both the pupils and their families.
In light of the significant responsibility afforded to the successful post holder, the seniority of this role should be judged to be equivalent to that of an Assistant Head. The post will be a public facing role and it is expected that the post holder will have exceptional interpersonal skills. This role will particularly appeal to someone seeking to eventually progress into a senior management position at Stonyhurst College, or another leading independent boarding school.
The package available to the successful candidate will be generous and commensurate to the importance of the role and the successful candidate's experience. A suitable home on the Stonyhurst estate will be provided for the successful candidate.
