This is a rare opportunity to take on a senior leadership role in a well-established international school in London with high standards of teaching and learning and excellent opportunities for professional development.
Dwight School London is an IB World School offering the Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma programmes. The Dwight School community has a rich diversity of cultures, nationalities and experiences, with over 50 nationalities represented and over 40 languages spoken. We are a small, friendly and supportive community with high aspirations for our students, and high expectations of our staff.
Due to the retirement of our Upper School Principal, we are seeking a vibrant, enthusiastic and principled individual to take on the leadership of our Upper School. The successful candidate will oversee the education of students aged 11 to 18 in the Middle Years and Diploma programmes.
We will expect visionary, collaborative leadership with a willingness to innovate and a demonstrable commitment to high standards of teaching and learning. An international outlook and experience of either the IB programmes and/or international education is essential. Dwight School London is a values driven organisation and the successful candidate will have to demonstrate an understanding of and a commitment to student led, inquiry based learning and the values of the IB learner profile.
In return you will have opportunities for professional development, the support of a resourceful and dedicated staff, a supportive parent body and all the advantages of a vibrant, diverse and welcoming international community.
