This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join a family of schools at a strategically important point in their history. Following a comprehensive review of how the four Merchant Taylors’ Crosby schools operate, the Governors have identified a key strategic priority of the two single sex senior schools working together more collaboratively, integrating their shared ethos and approach, and maximising the advantages of a close relationship with each other, whilst each school retains its own identity. The Head of the Senior Girls’ School will be integral in ensuring the Governors realise this vision; a new Head will also be appointed to lead the Senior Boys’ School opening up a genuine opportunity for enhanced collaboration between the schools.
In addition to leading this change, the incoming Head will be responsible to the Board of Governors for the whole conduct of the Girls’ School’s affairs and for promoting its ethos and development in line with the shared vision and strategy for the Merchant Taylors’ family of schools. The Head will provide the leadership and management which will enable the School to give its pupils the “best education for life”, while promoting the highest possible standards of achievement, care and welfare amongst the School’s pupils and staff.
Candidates must show a strong track record of leadership in a school setting as well as excellent communication and change skills. He/she will work in a collaborative manner and be able to adopt a strategic approach to the future of Merchant Taylors’ Girls’ School, working with the family of schools as a whole.
