Vice Principal Pastoral

Following the retirement of the current post holder from this role after 12 years outstanding service, the College is seeking a well-qualified, experienced and dynamic Vice Principal Pastoral to join the Senior Management Team at our purpose-built residential Sixth Form College near Loughborough from either January or April 2018. 

This is an exciting leadership opportunity and while the role would suit a current Deputy Head/Vice Principal, we are keen to attract applicants seeking their first Deputy Headship, whose experience might not, as yet, cover all aspects of the role.  It would also suit someone who is keen to develop the depth of experience in preparation for a Headship role within the next 4-5 years. 

Reporting directly to the Principal, you will have responsibility for the pastoral leadership and management of up to 360 male and female students.  You will have proven experience in pastoral matters, excellent leadership and people-management skills.  You should be committed, enthusiastic and willing to participate in extra-curricular activities such as sport, CCF and outdoor pursuits etc.  You will be expected to teach Mathematics to AS level.
