Head

From September 2020

Closing date for applications: 11 am on Tuesday, 30th April 2019

This is one of the most exciting opportunities a prep school Head could have – the chance to take over a large, top-performing boys’ prep school, then to move it into a brand-new purpose-built campus with state-of-the-art resources.

Durston House is an exceptional school with 400 boys aged 4 to 13, with a long history of academic success and a particularly friendly atmosphere.  It has grown steadily over the last 130 years and enjoys a very strong reputation throughout West London as a major feeder to top senior schools.  Durston House is a genuinely happy and inclusive community, and the education is based on creating independence, an enquiring mind, the ability to think and to find out, and the self-confidence to interact with others.

The school is planning to move from its three separate sites in Ealing Broadway to a brand-new development on one of its two large playing fields.  This will bring the whole school together, providing a range of opportunities to use the staff team differently, to teach differently, to make the fullest use of the very latest technology and resources, and to develop the school’s educational offering in many different ways.

We’re looking for a special person who can make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to re-define one of London’s top prep schools. You’ll be joining us in September 2020 when our current Head, Ian Kendrick, retires, in time to develop your thoughts and oversee the commissioning of the new buildings, then to lead the school community into its new home in September 2021.

An outstanding reward package is on offer, including an excellent salary, family accommodation, and a range of other benefits.

Full details and an application form can be downloaded via the link below.

Simon Shneerson will be happy to answer questions, to discuss the school and the role, and to offer impartial and confidential advice before you apply.  His telephone number is 07986 100237 or he can be e-mailed at info@simonshneerson.com.
