Nonsuch Headteacher Recruitment

Nonsuch High School for Girls is seeking to appoint a headteacher who has the energy, passion and integrity to lead the school into its next phase.

Nonsuch High School for Girls (NHSG) is a large, highly successful girls’ school which is part of the Girls’ Learning Trust (GLT). It aims to empower girls and young women by delivering a first-class education and providing an inspirational start to their futures.

Each school in the GLT is encouraged to develop its own special identity, so its headteachers have a substantial degree of autonomy to be leaders and shapers of their school’s ethos whilst also being part of the GLT’s professionally collaborative executive team.

Our ideal candidate will

  • Be the ‘standard bearer’ for the vision, values and ethos of Nonsuch High School for Girls
  • Foster a culture of continuous improvement, underpinned by effective systems and high professional standards, in order to attain excellence in every aspect of the school’s provision
  • Possess strong intellectual abilities, first class strategic and communication skills, and a substantial background in senior leadership
  • Thrive on both the autonomy of headship and being a member of the executive group, which supports the trustees in the future strategic development of the Girls’ Learning Trust.

We will provide you with:

  • Inspiring students - the very best ambassadors and advocates for their school
  • An outstanding senior leadership team who will give unstinting support
  • A highly qualified, skilled and committed staff team who work extremely hard for their students and who are proud to teach at Nonsuch High School for Girls
  • A talented Governing Body and Trust Board to plan strategically for school improvement whilst allowing you operational autonomy
  • A commitment to staff well-being and professional development.
