King’s Worcester is a leading co-educational independent day school situated in beautiful surroundings alongside Worcester Cathedral and the River Severn. The King’s Foundation is a community of three schools: King’s Senior (11-18) and two Junior Schools, Kings St Albans and King’s Hawford (both 2-11).

With a history dating back to the 7th Century, and close links to the Cathedral, the school has a strong sense of tradition combined with a modern and successful approach to learning. It is particularly known for its friendly atmosphere and excellent relationships between staff and pupils. King’s offers a balanced and holistic education with an academic core and a broad programme of artistic, sporting and intellectually enriching activities.

The vacancy arises in the saddest of circumstances. Matthew Armstrong, Headmaster since 2014, died suddenly on August 11th. The Governors seek an inspirational leader to build on Mr Armstrong’s legacy and to take the school forward with compassion and sensitivity. The successful candidate will be an astute strategist with the ability to win quickly the respect of staff, parents and pupils; an educationalist with a passion for learning and an excellent communicator with business acumen.

Potential candidates wishing to discuss the post are invited to contact Holly Fitzgerald on 07801 522913 / hollyfitzgerald@rsacademics.com
