HEAD OF YEAR (UPPER SCHOOL) required for September 2017
Closing date: Monday 31 October 2016
Applications are invited for Head of Year. It is expected that the successful applicant will take responsibility for a year group in the Upper School (Years 11-13) from September 2017.
Queen Elizabeth’s School is located in North London on the edge of the Green Belt and is one of the country’s leading and most historic selective maintained schools for boys. It was founded by Queen Elizabeth I in 1573, following a request of a charter for the School by Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester.
Heads of Year are responsible for securing pupils’ rounded development by celebrating successes and providing support in relation to overall academic performance, wider school involvement, and general conduct. They play a vital role in the delivery of an excellent, bespoke education to our boys.
This role requires outstanding communication skills, energy and a firm commitment to upholding the School’s standards and expectations. As well as being a good administrator, the person appointed will be able to deal effectively with staff, parents and outside agencies and lead a team of tutors and year group decisively and by example.
