JFS School is one of the UK’s leading non selective comprehensive schools, offering an outstanding education to over 2000 students serving the London Jewish community JFS is a ten form entry secondary school with over 2000 students on roll serving the Jewish community in North West London. Established in 1732, the school moved to its current greenfield site located in Kenton, Harrow in 2001.
The school seeks to appoint a highly experienced individual to the newly created post of Senior Deputy Headteacher. Reporting directly to the Head, the appointee will have whole school responsibility for the day to day operation of the School. Our ideal candidate is an outstanding classroom teacher, an eloquent and thoughtful communicator and whilst JFS is not seeking a Jewish candidate you should relate to and embrace the Jewish dimension that permeates the school. We are looking for someone who is already a successful educational leader who also has personal drive and ambition.
The successful candidate will have oversight of the implementation of the School’s Strategic Vision and deputise for the Head, as well as attend all meetings of the Board of Governors and its committees. For individuals aspiring to headship, this post offers an excellent opportunity to develop as a leader in one of the leading schools in the country.
