What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an inspirational Head of Year to contribute to this outstanding 11-18 girls’ school which has an excellent academic and pastoral reputation. Our students are driven, ambitious and eager to learn. We are very proud of our students’ success at A-Level with a 100% pass rate and 88% at Grades A*-C. This builds on our excellent GCSE results that are consistently in the top 20% of schools nationwide with 89% achieving passes in both Maths and English.

Respect, collaboration and a desire for there to be no limits set on potential achievement, whatever the starting point, is at the heart of our ethos.

The successful candidate will be:

  • Totally aligned to our vision and values. If you are the type of person who fits in with our culture, you will love it here
  • An enthusiastic and innovative teacher; previous pastoral experience would be an advantage
  • A team player who will bring fresh ideas and help drive the school forwards
  • An ambitious colleague who is looking for leadership opportunities
