Durham High School
Negotiable, depending on experience
2nd Oct 2023
The Chair and Governing Body of Durham High School are inviting applications from outstanding individuals for the position of Principal.
Durham High School is a leading Independent Day School for girls aged 3 – 18. We were one of the first schools in the North East of England to take girls’ education seriously and we are proud to continue that tradition today; we seek to develop the potential of every girl in all areas of life.
The School is consistently the best in County Durham for academic results and pastoral support. Classes are small and the pastoral care of pupils is given a very high priority. Our pupils consistently achieve some of the best results in the area at both GCSE and A Level.
This is a tremendous opportunity for a leader with the commitment, energy and stamina to embrace life in a busy day school. You will have proven commitment to achieving high academic standards along with excellent pastoral care and offering a breadth of educational experience for all pupils.
Closing date for applications: 9:00am on Monday 2 October 2023.
Applications should be made electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a completed application form and a covering letter addressed to Helen McMillan, Chair of Governors. This letter should explain your reasons for applying.
Durham High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure and other safer recruitment checks throughout the recruitment process.
In addition, as part of the shortlisting process, Durham High School will carry out an online search on the shortlisted candidates as part of its due diligence.
