Maidstone, Kent

We are delighted to be supporting the Sutton Valence School in the search for a new Head of Prep.

The Headmaster and Governors of Sutton Valence School seek to appoint a dynamic and forward-thinking new Head for Sutton Valence Preparatory School (SVPS) to succeed Claire Corkran who will be leaving in July 2022 after twelve years of exemplary and outstanding service.

Situated in the glorious Weald of Kent, SVPS is a very happy and caring school where children are supported to reach their true potential in both academic and co-curricular activities.

In a community where each cares for all and individuality is cherished, children receive a challenging, relevant and broad curriculum alongside the enjoyment of an outstanding range of sporting, artistic, cultural and social activities. The School promotes excellence, independence and high standards whist providing support to all who need it.

A strong commitment to pastoral care ensures that all pupils are able to flourish in a supportive environment. The School fosters a moral and spiritual understanding that promotes respect for others along with self-respect.

Working very closely with the Headmaster of Sutton Valence School, applications are encouraged from ambitious and passionate educationalists who are excited to lead this vibrant, wonderfully caring school into its next chapter.
