Emanuel School is a co-educational independent secondary day school in Wandsworth, London, with over 900 pupils from 10-18 years old. We aim to balance academic excellence with the provision of supportive pastoral care and a wide range of co-curricular activities across the arts and sports.
The Head of the Middle School is a key senior management team post within the school, and we are looking for an exceptional person to fill it. The right candidate will have excellent pastoral and academic understanding, combined with the leadership qualities and presence needed to manage the important middle school years: nine to eleven. This exciting, varied and rewarding role may well suit someone with pastoral management experience or a successful head of department – critically they must have the proven ability to inspire and engage young people and enjoy working closely with colleagues and parents.
We are looking for someone who will improve academic outcomes for pupils in all three year groups by having high aspirations, as well as supporting and leading them with good humour, clarity and empathy.
As with other senior pastoral posts, the Head of the Middle School will join the safeguarding team as the deputy DSL.
