Westminster School offers a distinctive education with an emphasis upon academic excellence. The school will be transitioning to co-ed in 2028/29 and are looking for a Project Director to manage this programme of work. This is an exciting time in the history of the school and will refine the educational offering. The Co-Education Project is a very complex project across both schools, including the expansion of the Under School and the introduction of girls for the first time from 2026. Though girls have been in the 6th form at Westminster School for 50 years, the expansion of co-education across all years will be a major change.
This a key leadership position requiring careful stakeholder management and project management skills, both internally and externally, to safeguard the culture and reputation of the school. The role requires an experienced leader who wants to be at the forefront for pedagogy and learning.
This role will report to the Co-Education Project Sponsors, who are the Head Master at Westminster School and the Master at Westminster Under School, with operational line management from the Bursar & Chief Operating Officer. The post holder will support the Co-Education project sponsors with the design and implementation of the Co-Education Project. You will work closely with all members of the Senior Management Committee at Westminster School and the Senior Management Team at the Under School and the Co-Education Project team in order to support the smooth running of the project and the achievement of its objectives.
The role holder will be a standing member of the Co-Education Steering Group, which acts as the project Board, as well as the Co-Education Oversight Group, which is a joint Governor and Management Group set up to act as a sounding-board for the Schools’ planning for co-education across the charity by 2030. This includes the expansion to include a pre-prep at Westminster Under School, boarding and co-curricular provision and facilities for girls from 13+ and all other related aspects.
We are seeking an individual that sees change as an opportunity, demonstrating the agility and relentless optimism needed to create an incredible learning experience.
The closing date for applications is 3 March 2024.
