Our client is a co-educational prep school, for 3- 11 year olds, located in Brighton, seeking a new Headteacher.

The class sizes are small and ensure that every child from the beginning of their time with the school feels valued and cared for with a special part to play in the everyday life of the school.

The school is based within a close knit community with strong ties to children’s families, and academic support although the school excels in this area as well. The school supports teaching in a non-pressured, happy way, encouraging a love of learning and bringing out the many facets of the pupils personalities and seeking a Headteacher who values these qualities.

The new Headteacher will be leading a school where children enjoy a vibrant, broad curriculum that stimulates, challenges and excites.
