As one of the world’s leading schools with a strong pioneering heritage Cheltenham Ladies’ College embodies excellence, inspiration, independence and empowerment in the education of young women. Since its foundation in 1854, College has embraced the creative, expressive and performing arts at the very core of its educational provision, with bespoke facilities for the Music Faculty completed in the 19th century, and the opening of both the purpose-built Fauconberg Art Wing and the Parabola Arts Centre within the past two decades being transformative for our richness of provision and opportunities. College’s vision for Creative Arts at College extends from Art to Music, Drama and Dance and is one which forms an integral part of the girls’ education.
Cheltenham Ladies’ College are now looking for outstanding candidates for the new role of Director of the Creative Arts to craft a vision for the creative arts as part of College’s wider strategic vision. This role has responsibility for implementing and communicating a clear and vibrant vision for Creative Arts both into the College and into the wider community, including local schools. Working closely with the Principal, this person will pull together work across the functions of drama and music, with the Heads of these Departments reporting directly into her/him, to create a seamless and collaborative approach. We would welcome applications from leaders and managers from the creative industries outside of the secondary education sector, as well as those who may already be working within the sector. This is an outstanding opportunity to be a part of a centre of excellence making a difference to the lives of young women from around the world.
