KISU is an established and highly-regarded international school in Kampala, Uganda. We are CIS/NEASC accredited and an IB World School with over 500 students aged 2 to 18 years from 58 countries. We offer the National Curriculum for England, IGCSE’s and the IB Diploma Programme. We are blessed with great students, committed teachers and world-class facilities, located close to the centre of the city. The IBO recently praised our “learning environment based on understanding and respect”, while CIS commended our “purpose-built facility designed to support high quality teaching and learning”.
We are seeking a dynamic and inspirational leader for our primary school to continue and accelerate our drive for excellence. The successful candidate will be passionate about learning and teaching and committed to fostering an ethos in which teachers have the confidence to be innovative, reflective and collaborative in their approach to planning and facilitating truly engaging learning experiences for our children. Candidates should be able to clearly demonstrate how they have led and embedded successful change in a whole-school context. For a full person specification and role description please see our website (www.kisu.com ), but, in short, we are looking for an educational leader who can articulate a clear vision and inspire commitment from a talented team to make it happen; and above all we seek someone who will be unequivocally devoted to promoting the best interests of our children.
If you would relish the opportunity to work with great students and teachers in a school with undeniable forward momentum, then we would love to hear from you. Uganda is a very beautiful country with a reputation for economic and political stability and for welcoming visitors and Kampala makes an excellent base from which to explore the wonders of the region from the Mountain Gorillas of northern Uganda to the historic treasures of Zanzibar.
