The Principals are seeking to appoint the next Head of Northcote Lodge upon the retirement of Mark Smith.

Northcote Lodge is an oversubscribed and thriving privately owned independent day preparatory school for approximately 260 boys aged 7-13, located in Wandsworth, South London. The school was established in 1993 as a sister school for Broomwood Hall, and together they fall under the joint umbrella of Northwood Schools.

The school aims to provide a country prep school-style education, but within the structure of a London day school. Boys go home having done all their homework and a huge range of extra-curricular activities. The majority of the boys come to Northcote Lodge from Broomwood Hall Lower School, with a small external intake. The school is mixed ability, with four form entry and the majority of boys go on to take 13+ for a range of mainstream public and secondary schools, both day and boarding. The school occupies its own freehold premises of four well-appointed buildings, facing directly on to Wandsworth Common, where the school has its playing fields.

The Principals wish to appoint a candidate with Prep School experience and an understanding of 13+ processes. The successful candidate will be a charismatic individual, able to operate alongside Broomwood Hall and under the Northwood Schools umbrella. The individual will have high educational standards and will be expected to provide inspirational leadership for this thriving, family school.
