Appointments Vacancies

Head – Garden House Boys


Garden House School is a leading London IAPS day school offering Kindergarten, Pre-Prep and Prep schooling for girls and boys from three to eleven years of age. The boys are taught separately from the girls, except in Kindergarten. The School believes strongly boys and girls learn most effectively apart but have much to offer one another in the broader School environment. This is a structure rarely seen elsewhere in the British education system and it works very effectively.

The Boys’ School and the Girls’ School are housed together in Turks Row, Chelsea.  A Head of Early Years oversees Kindergarten and Reception; the Head of Boys is responsible for approximately 200 boys aged 5-11 and works alongside the Head of Girls and Head of Early Years. Founded in 1950, Garden House has a genuine family feel about it and prides itself on providing a sound educational base gained within a caring framework.

The Principals seek to appoint an outstanding, experienced leader with a preparatory school background and Qualified Teacher Status. The ideal candidate is likely to be either a Head or a Deputy Head in their current school. He or she should retain the traditional values of Garden House but have the vision, passion and energy to take it forward.

The new Head will maintain the very positive momentum of the School and support Garden House’s unique and much valued ethos of co-education on the same site but in separate classrooms and academic excellence in a caring, friendly and kind community.
