Founding Head – Maida Vale School
North West London
THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS HAS NOW PASSED.
If you are an enthusiastic, imaginative and ambitious school leader, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to establish a modern and pioneering school which will seek to be a front-runner in educational practice in London.
RSAcademics are delighted to be assisting the Directors of the Gardener Schools Group in the appointment of a founding Head for their new enterprise, Maida Vale School, a brand new, independent, co-educational secondary school. This is a rare and exciting opportunity to shape a new independent school in North West London. The successful appointee will ideally commence in post January 2020.
Maida Vale School will educate 11-18 year olds, with the roll eventually reaching 600 students. The School will recruit its first student intake for September 2020 and is likely to take pupils in Years 7, 8 and 9 in its first year. It will be housed in a large, airy Victorian building, and will be the fourth school founded by Gardener Schools Group, a family-run company which has built three very successful schools in the last 28 years.
Maida Vale School will pursue excellence in all areas but will meet a demand for a modern approach, selective but not simply exam-focused, that will enable it to gain a firm foothold in this environment. The School will provide a greater variety of educational opportunity – academically demanding but with a fresh approach to selection criteria, the flexibility of the curriculum, the shape of the school day and term and the recognition of creativity and talent.
