The Head of Brighton College Al Ain is now seeking an 

inspirational Head of Senior School, with a start date of 

January 2022. 

Brighton College Al Ain is well-established, successful 

academically and characterised by the pillars of 

curiosity, confidence and kindness that are at the core 

of all Brighton College schools. The school reflects the 

cultural context in which it operates and is entering an 

exciting new phase of development. 

The successful candidate will combine a track record of 

successful middle or senior leadership experience, 

developed either in the UK or internationally, with the 

cultural awareness and global perspective to inspire 

and lead the entire College community on all areas 

related to the Senior School.

All our leaders and teachers understand the values of a 

Brighton College education, the expectations of parents 

for the highest educational standards and the needs of 

our pupils, who are very motivated to learn. We are 

looking for an educational leader with the energy and 

vision to take a leading role in a world-class academic 

institution, distinctive in its own right but with the 

Brighton College DNA running right through the school. 

The successful candidate will have experience of 

delivering academic excellence (including an in-depth 

knowledge of the British curriculum), supported by 

outstanding pastoral and co-curricular programmes, 

that are essential to the success of any Brighton College 

school. They will be enthusiastic about working within 

the group and, like all other senior leaders within the 

Brighton College family, will be expected to lead with 

authenticity, purpose and a deep-seated commitment 

to the progress and development of each and every 

pupil within their school.

The position comes with an attractive salary and a 

competitive package including medical cover, flights, 

housing and free child school places.
