Our values are Ambitious, Courageous, Open and Distinctive.  They speak to who we are and who we strive to be; whether you are a pupil, teacher, staff member, alumni or volunteer.  Our values help to guide us in our learning together and also as we navigate our way through life. 

We are looking for a Senior School Registrar who will primarily focus on the admission of day pupils; being the first point of contact for families considering joining our community.  You will have a warm and engaging personality, strong communications skills and the ability to build relationships with new families quickly.  With a positive and proactive attitude and excellent organisational skills, you will be pivotal in driving a seamless and engaging admissions experience for families, from first click on our website through to the first term their child joins us.  You will work closely with the Senior School Registrar – Boarding Pupils and there will be overlap between areas in the peaks and troughs of the academic year.

You will have experience of working with Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems in a primarily customer-facing role and will be equally at ease both working under your own initiative and collaboratively with colleagues. You will be joining a dynamic and friendly team who all work together to support staff and pupils to achieve the highest standards.

Our vision is to provide an outstanding co-educational experience for children as the family school of choice.
