From September 2020
HMC, IAPS co-ed, day, 1300 + pupils aged 2-18
King’s Worcester is a leading co-educational independent day school situated in beautiful surroundings alongside Worcester Cathedral and the River Severn. The King’s Foundation is a community of three schools: King’s Senior (11-18) and two Junior Schools: Kings St Albans and King’s Hawford (both 2-11).
With a history dating back to the 7th Century, and close links to the Cathedral, the school has a strong sense of tradition combined with a modern and successful approach to learning. It is particularly known for its friendly atmosphere and excellent relationships between staff and pupils.
The vacancy arises in the saddest of circumstances. Matthew Armstrong, Headmaster since 2014, died suddenly on August 11th. The Governors seek an inspirational leader to build on Mr Armstrong’s legacy and to take the school forward with compassion and sensitivity. The successful candidate will be an astute strategist with the ability to win quickly the respect of staff, parents and pupils; an educationalist with a passion for learning and an excellent communicator with business acumen.
The closing date for applications is 10.00am on Friday 11th October 2019.
