Head Teacher - Stanborough Secondary School

British Union Conference Education Dept

The British Union Conference is looking to appoint an exceptional candidate as Headteacher, for immediate start.

This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic Headteacher to be instrumental in leading Stanborough Secondary School through its next steps towards excellence.  Stanborough school is an independent co-educational school operating under the motto ‘God is the Master of our School’, which has shaped many generations of families educated at the school since 1919.

It is a diverse school with an international component and approximately 40 different nationalities represented among the student body.  The school promotes values such as respect, courage, resilience and excellence.  Parents recognise the school’s commitment to holistic teaching and are supportive of the school.  The pupils are keen to succeed and staff continue to work to ensure the best possible outcomes.  Many of the school leavers have gone on to follow a variety of distinguished careers and serve in the Adventist Church in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world.

The school is situated in 40 acres of parkland, offering a peaceful and inspiring learning environment.

The British Union Conference seeks a suitably qualified educator who will:

  • Provide ambitious and inspirational leadership.
  • Provide vision and strategic direction for the school.  
  • Drive school improvement to ensure that pupils consistently achieve the best possible outcomes.
  • Promote safeguarding and the well-being of pupils in a nurturing environment.
