A wonderful opportunity to join a busy, forward-thinking Dorset boarding and day school. Headspace Academics is delighted to be assisting Clayesmore with the appointment of a new head for the Preparatory School, to take up post in January 2020. The school seeks a successful, passionate and dynamic leader with a creative vision. Clayesmore is a well-respected and popular school that provides children with demonstrable added value. Pupils range from nursery to 13; the vast majority transfer to Clayesmore Senior School.

Prep and Senior pupils share the same idyllic setting in beautiful Dorset countryside. Filled with warmth, it is a family school to its core, something that is treasured, nurtured and respected, as is our commitment to bringing out the very best in each and every pupil.

The Prep School has its own distinct identity within the school grounds and its own accommodation both for teaching and boarding. The Prep and Senior Schools share comprehensive sports facilities including extensive playing fields, the chapel, dining room and music school.

The successful candidate will be a qualified teacher with energy and enthusiasm; they will have had experience as part of a school leadership team, understand the business of running a school and have the personality to engage and inspire the Prep School community. The candidate will wish to embrace the ethos of Clayesmore, love the excitement of leading a prep school with an enviable reputation and be a fundamental part of the ongoing whole school development plans.

The post is available to commence in January 2020
