Director of Admissions – St George’s

By April 3, 2024No Comments

St George’s is a thriving independent boarding and day school of 270 girls aged 11-18 around 45% of whom are boarders (full, weekly and flexi) and with a Sixth Form of approximately 80 pupils. St George’s offers an ambitious, connected and future-facing education tailored for pupils to realise their potential both at school and in fulfilling adult lives ahead.

Awarded ‘excellent across the board’ in its November 2022 ISI inspection, the School is a place where girls flourish academically, creatively, physically and morally, a place where risks can be taken, lessons are learnt and challenges are welcome.

We are a welcoming school with a warm sense of community. Visitors are impressed by our facilities within a beautiful setting and the ambition of our educational provision.

Our unique extended day and flexible boarding model allows all girls the time and space to foster confidence, independence and academic curiosity providing a future-facing education exclusively for girls in a world not yet designed for girls and introduces them to contemporary subjects and topics, through speakers, workshops, classes and visits.

St George’s offers an education that is grounded, relevant and fosters employability. The school operates as an Educational Trust administered by a Board of Governors, is a member of the Girls’ Schools Association (GSA), Boarding Schools Association (BSA) ISBA, AGBIS and is ISC accredited.

We have an opening for an enthusiastic and dynamic full-time Director of Admissions to start as soon as possible.

This is a high profile position at the School and the successful candidate will be responsible for managing a strong performing Admissions department consisting of two other members of staff. This is a role with considerable variety and is enhanced with some overseas travel and a range of benefits as outlined in the Job Application Pack.

The successful candidate should be able to demonstrate excellent interpersonal and communication skills, be flexible in approach, remain calm under pressure and possess the ability to effectively juggle a range of tasks and competing priorities, using initiative appropriately.

This is a full-time position throughout the year and the normal hours of work are 8.30am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday (with a 30-minute unpaid lunch break).

St George’s operates its own generous salary scheme and the salary for this role will be commensurate with experience. The successful candidate will be auto-enrolled into the School’s Pension Scheme; there is an opportunity to opt out.

Additional Staff benefits include:

  • Use of state-of-the-art gym with Technogym equipment at allocated times
  • Staff swimming sessions and family swimming sessions in the recently built 25m, 6-lane indoor pool
  • Supportive Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme
  • Ample free onsite parking
  • Freshly prepared, nutritious lunches in the Dining Room during term time. Refreshments are also available throughout the day in the Staff Room.
