Mount House SchoolBarnet

Mount House School is a small, co-educational independent day school for students aged 11 – 18 years located on a stunning rural site on Camlet Way in the London Borough of Barnet.  With 225 pupils currently on roll, the School has ambitious plans and investment to grow to 350 in the coming years. Small class sizes and modern teaching methods supported by outstanding pastoral care combine to ensure each student achieves their best, whilst a broad and varied co-curricular programme equips them with the skills needed to thrive in adult life. The School’s vision is underpinned by ASPIRE, values that enable each student to be Adaptable, Supportive, Principled, Inquisitive, Resilient and Excellent.  

Mount House now seeks an inspiring and dedicated Senior Deputy who will be responsible for the smooth operational day-to-day running of the School whilst supporting the delivery of its strategic vision set within a culture of high standards and aspiration for all. With the full support of the Board and Directors, this is an exciting opportunity to play a pivotal role in the ongoing growth and development of Mount House as it moves into the next exciting chapter of its rich history.   

 The Senior Deputy Head will be an ambitious and committed educational leader with a proven track record of managing change, ideally within the context of a small to medium sized independent school with a similarly inclusive and rounded educational ethos. The successful candidate will bring demonstrable academic management experience, outstanding communication skills, a passion for high-quality teaching and learning and the interpersonal skills to engage, support and develop a committed staff body.
