Head of Preparatory School
Required for September 2018
Permanent – Full time
Our Lady’s Convent School is part of Loughborough Endowed Schools and is an Independent Catholic Day School in the centre of Loughborough. We have a co-educational Preparatory School from ages 4 to 11 and girls’ Senior School and Sixth Form (11 to 18). We have a long and respected tradition of educating the whole person. The School enables students to achieve their full potential within a warm, caring family environment.
Our Preparatory School is a small (48 pupils) but vital part of our community and an area that we are looking to expand. We are also looking to bring energetic and inspirational academic leadership to a Prep School that has an excellent pastoral record and huge academic potential but requires modernisation and firm leadership in terms of academic quality assurance. The successful candidate will become a member of our four person senior leadership team.
The successful candidate will have an excellent record as a primary school teacher and experience of leading culture change and the raising of academic standards. Senior leadership experience is desirable but not essential.
We welcome applications from practicing Catholics or candidates willing to support the ethos and practices of a Catholic School. The successful applicant, if a practicing Catholic, shall have responsibility for oversight of the RE ‘Come and See’ curriculum and for delivering this curriculum in KS2. Our priority is to find the best school leader, so applications from candidates of other faiths or no faith are most welcome.
The post has a competitive salary and an attractive benefits package which includes a generous school fee discount.
