Starting date 1/08/2023
The Head of Secondary School (HoSS) is a member of the whole school senior leadership team and collaborates directly with the Head of IB curriculum. The HoSS reports to the Director. The HoSS is responsible for the pastoral care of staff and students and for overseeing the day-to-day operation, including timetabling and other related aspects of school organisation.
The candidate will have significant experience in school organisation, preferably, with a good understanding of the IB philosophy. Ideally, this experience will include leadership in a growing school.
This year we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of our school. However, our young and dynamic Secondary is only 4 years old. During these four years we went through the authorisation process of the IB MYP, DP and CP programmes. We have the drive and vision to sustain ongoing, innovative learning. This is reflected in our learning and organisational approaches as well as in our flexible Co-learning environment mirroring contemporary coworking spaces. Likewise, our secondary staff work in self-organising teams, giving high levels of autonomy and impact, continually innovating, consolidating and reviewing practice. Our Secondary moved into their fully renovated building last September. Therefore, settling in our new physical spaces and with the growth of the student body, we constantly adapt and develop our learning to support our vision and values.
