Start date: August 2018

Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Fixed Term

St Christopher’s is one of the world’s pre-eminent British international schools with an impressive local, regional and international reputation for excellence. A vibrant community of over 2,300 students aged 3 to 18 and made up of more than 70 different nationalities, St Christopher’s is a not-for-profit school, committed to developing global citizens and autonomous learners able to thrive and contribute to a rapidly changing 21st century world.

The School has benefited from 23 years of outstanding leadership from Ed Goodwin OBE who will retire as Principal in the summer of 2018. His successor has a unique opportunity to shape the future of one of the world’s leading international schools, and to guide St Christopher’s through a period of significant strategic growth and development which will include the development of a new, world class, senior school in the near future.

The Board of Governors seeks an outstanding educationalist with vision, ambition and experience to inspire the diverse St Christopher’s community in pursuit of even greater success. The appointed candidate will have the political acuity to lead an organisation at the heart of the community in Bahrain, and the personal authority, gravitas and authenticity to engage multiple influential stakeholders nationally and internationally. A track record of successful school leadership experience together with the emotional intelligence to manage complex organisational change is essential, as is a genuine commitment to St Christopher’s distinctive mission and values.
