Are you looking for a new and exciting challenge, working in a school with beautiful surroundings in an attractive part of the United Kingdom?

Wynstones Steiner Waldorf School is looking for someone with experience of leadership in an educational setting. You will be passionate about the ‘whole’ education of children with a focus not just on academic success, but also on developing young people to be creative and critical thinkers.
 
One of the oldest Steiner Waldorf schools in the UK, Wynstones offers a co-educational education to children of all ages, from Kindergarten through to Class Twelve. In the older years we run GCSE and A-Level courses alongside the core Waldorf curriculum. We strive to guide pupils to become unprejudiced and creative young people who are responsible and practical contributors to society.
 
We are excited about this opportunity. Although at our Ofsted inspection last March we failed to meet a number of Independent School Standards, our subsequent Post Monitoring Inspection reported that most of these have now been met, and of the few remaining unmet standards, considerable and rapid improvement had been made. Significant energy will be required, but you will be joining a strong community of pupils, teachers, families and friends ready to meet the challenges that lie ahead as we look forward to an exciting new chapter in our history.
 
We offer a salary commensurate with a senior role working for a charity in this geographical area, together with flexible terms and a generous staff discount for school fees. Wynstones School is situated in an 11-acre estate near Gloucester and Stroud, and easily accessed from the M5 J12.
 
If you feel ready for a new challenge and enjoy working as part of a creative team of staff and teachers please do not hesitate to contact: recruitment@wynstones.com
