The Governors are seeking to appoint an exceptional Headteacher to lead our dynamic, inclusive, co-educational school, with roots dating back to 1536. We have 1,467 students including a vibrant sixth form with over 500 students. The successful candidate will share our vision ‘to provide a liberal academic education which recognises and develops the potential of every student, within a caring, supportive and friendly environment, thus helping them in their preparation to become full and effective citizens”.

The School is designated as having a religious character and upholds Christian principles embodied in our motto "Love as Brethren".  Religious Education is a compulsory part of the School curriculum.

We value tradition, innovation and independence.  We maintain high standards of discipline and reward effort, attainment and creativity.  These values are nurtured both through the School's broad and balanced curriculum and through its exceptionally wide range of extra-curricular activities.

The School enjoys the active support of its parent Livery Company, the Worshipful Company of Coopers, through the Coopers' Company and Coborn Educational Foundation and has strong links with the City of London.

We are fortunate in having students who are highly motivated in both their work and play and live up to the high standards expected of them. Our parents and carers and the local community are all highly supportive of the school.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young adults.  Appointments will be subject to an enhanced DBS check and satisfactory references.
