St James Senior Girls School is located in Kensington, offers a distinctive education for Girls aged 11 to 18. St James is a dynamic school, leading the way in the education of the whole-person with a strong philosophically based ethos, valuing stillness and meditation, balanced with a rigorous academic focus.

The philosophy underpinning the St James ethos is a Philosophy of Unity. This philosophy emphasises the practice of self-awareness and the unity of all humanity. Self-awareness is practised during pausing and quiet time. Girls and staff are provided with the opportunity to connect with the peace and stillness behind all movement, and are encouraged to utilise this practice in their daily life.

It is a great moment for a new Deputy Head to capitalise on the School’s many achievements, not least the recent ISI inspection.

The new Deputy Head will join the School at a time when then there is an opportunity to advocate the School’s unique brand and further develop the academic program. The role presents a rare and exciting opportunity for someone who is wholeheartedly willing and able to share and uphold the strong spiritual values and philosophy that underpin the School.

Above all, through inspirational and ambitious leadership, there is a tremendous opportunity to make a lasting difference to a School working an experienced head.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on 3rd March , 2024. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling process with interviews taking place in person in March 2024.
