A leading independent Preparatory School in London require a Deputy Head Academic from September, 2022.  The position is initially for one year, however, there is a good possibility of the post becoming permanent. The role would entail assisting the Head in leading the school; namely: line managing teaching staff, curriculum development, pupil tracking, and strategy development.
Essential: Several years experience teaching at Primary level, an excellent track record of achievement and a background holding a position of responsibility.
Desired: Experience with 11+ or 13+ preparation and a background in the independent sector would be a bonus, however, this is certainly not essential.
The school places a strong emphasis on the wider community and establishing a partnership with parents so that the children are able to flourish in a nurturing yet stimulating environment.  The development of interpersonal skills, team spirit and strong self awareness is achieved through a varied and exciting extracurricular programme as well as instilling values such as: confidence, honesty, service, and dedication.  The school provides excellent academic rigour underpinned by an outstanding pastoral care programme so that pupils can thrive.
