Advance notice of the headship of this thriving Catholic boys' day school to be advertised this autumn - a role offering scope and the opportunity for an innovative forward thinker to grow as a leader. Loyola welcomes boys from 3-11 years old and from all faiths.

This is an established, financially sound school and our ethos is rooted in the Ignatian tradition, ensuring a supportive learning environment for all pupils with core values of dignity, respect and service at its heart.

There is the offer of accommodation (a 4-bedroom house) associated with this headship, located in a relatively affluent residential area; this notice is to give those who may need to consider a move to work here the opportunity to view the locality, and what it has to offer, over the summer period. This location benefits from swift access to central London but close proximity to the woodlands of Epping Forest. However, there is no obligation to accept this accommodation.

With an academically strong reputation our boys achieve a number of scholarships to a range of secondary schools. Based in cleverly extended and adapted Edwardian buildings, we offer a modern and surprisingly spacious learning environment; recent extensions offer further creative opportunity to both broaden and refine curriculum provision.

A generous staff: pupil ratio also contributes to the development of our boys into confident, articulate students with an enquiring attitude, healthy competitive spirit and justifiable pride in their school. Behaviour is conducive to learning and boys from a variety of backgrounds visibly demonstrate their support of each other.

Promotion of the culture of giving service underpins our religious ethos: the Governors seek a practising Catholic who, although respectful of tradition and retaining the unique family atmosphere of the school, will bring vision, offer clear leadership, work to ensure our sustainability and who will seek to widen the influence of our expertise beyond our school.

Benefits for candidates include

· Generally oversubscribed pupil numbers, a sound financial base, experienced, supportive governors

· Established curriculum but with scope to influence development to meet changing academic needs

· Potential to review and remodel the leadership and staffing structures

· Facilities that promote and encourage learning and enhance curriculum delivery

· Accommodation (semi-detached 4-bed house) provided within half a mile of the school

Application procedure:   To register your interest in this vacancy or for a confidential discussion prospective candidates are invited to contact our consultant Jacqueline Baker on 020 7336 8403 (or 07891 671 226 out of hours) or email jacqueline.baker@judicium.com

  • You will receive the candidate information as a priority late August and visits to the school are being offered from September onward.

Loyola Preparatory School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
