Peter Symonds College is a large sixth form college with a reputation for providing an exceptional learning environment. The College serves over 4,000 students aged 16-19 whose results speak for themselves, with high value added scores year on year. In addition, the College provides adult and higher education courses for 3,000 adult learners and boarding provision for over 70 students.
The College’s success has not happened by accident. It is a combination of the dedication of staff and students and a philosophy of academic focus backed by attention to the individual, living our motto ‘Counting in Ones’. This, with high quality facilities, makes the College a vibrant place to work and study.
With the retirement of our Principal in August 2018, we seek a new Principal to lead us through the next phase of our development. We are not complacent and we recognise that we need to evolve and develop in order to continue providing excellence in education and care.
With an in-depth understanding of 16–19 education, you will have an exceptional track record of leadership. You will understand the challenges facing the College and the complexities of having to deliver more with less. You will be equally comfortable leading the strategic direction of high quality provision alongside operational activities. Your exceptional influencing and people skills will set you apart; both are vital in such a high profile role. Your belief in the power and moral purpose of education will have shaped your career and you will share our ambition for students and the College.
Closing Date: Monday 15 January 2018
