Medbury Preparatory School, established in 1923, is an Independent Year 1-8 school for boys, recognised by parents and educators as one of Australasia’s leading preparatory schools.  Located in Christchurch, New Zealand, the school caters for 360 dayboys and boarders.  With small class sizes, Medbury School provides individual attention and support to each boy, attracting highly talented staff who inspire achievement and are dedicated to “unlocking the potential of every boy”.  The school enjoys a self-contained campus, offers a wide array of extra-curricular activities and has a strong school spirit underpinned by traditional Christian values.  Medbury School actively pursues educational excellence, encouraging a school environment where achievement is applauded and a place in the choir is as much sought after as a place in a sports team. 

The Trust Board is seeking a new Headmaster/Principal who will lead Medbury School to meet the needs of 21st century learners by providing a progressive, academically rich and student centred educational experience.  Equally, he/she will foster the traditions, values and ethos of Medbury School which provide so much of its strength and defining character. 

We seek applications from exceptional leaders, with a track record of success leading through inspiration, strong character, superior relationship skills and a focus on fostering a collaborative school community.  Strategic, commercial and general management skills are essential, along with experience in championing a collegial and professionally stimulating environment for staff.  A deep understanding of boys and their education is essential, and experience as a staff member or pupil in the independent school sector would be advantageous.

To apply in strict confidence now, email your cover letter and CV to quoting 812445ke. Applications close on 27 August 2017. Emails will be electronically acknowledged and further correspondence may be by email.
