Could you  provide inspirational leadership to a growing all through school in North West London that is driven by its Christian ethos? Do you have the vision and determination to move us from ‘Good’ to ’Outstanding’?

Our pupils say they want a Principal who is interesting, fun  and empathetic, but who also knows when discipline is needed. They would like to be led by someone with a clear perspective on how to improve their school. They want someone who is approachable and understands their feelings whilst being fair and unbiased.

Our staff say they want to be inspired by an experienced, highly visible leader who is an excellent communicator. They would like to work alongside a strategic Principal who has an innovative vision for their school and who supports a creative curriculum.  They would like their new Principal to drive them forward in a supportive and empathetic style.

Our Governing Body  would welcome a leader who is inspired by this amazing opportunity to further develop our growing all through school. The new Principal will lead the SMSJ team to ensure the optimum conditions for our children to learn and progress, and receive an excellent education. By appreciating the advantages of working within the school’s distinctive Christian ethos the new Principal will develop the school so that it is outstanding in every respect.

Visits to our school are welcomed, and can be arranged at mutually convenient times by emailing
