Glendower Preparatory School


Job Reference FAAWB
Closing Date Thursday 06 Oct 2022

At Glendower Prep School we immerse our girls in the wonder of learning, develop their curiosity and actively seek to challenge and extend their minds both within and beyond the classroom. Education is so much more than sitting passively and we want our girls to experience many enriching activities both within their classes and beyond the walls of Glendower. Academics are very important to us, but so too are the skills needed to build rounded characters. Girls need to run, swim, play and develop physically, they need to reach out to others in their community, developing generosity of character and most importantly, they need to be kind, not only to others, but also to themselves. When all of these characteristics are fostered and nurtured, we know that our girls will be happy, thrive and be successful.

Together with the Headmistress, Mrs Nina Kingsmill Moore, Glendower’s Governing Body now seeks to appoint an exceptional, forward-thinking looking individual for the role of Bursar. Reporting directly to the Head, the Bursar has full financial responsibility for all non-academic matters, including finance, recruitment and safeguarding, health and safety and estates management. He/she will also serve as Clerk to the Governors.

Successful candidates will be inspiring, team-oriented leaders with outstanding organisational skills to work alongside all members of the expanded Senior Leadership Team and embrace the special ethos of Glendower. He/she will be passionate about innovative education and learning as well as strategic leadership, with keen financial acumen and the personal presence to represent the School with all of its most senior internal and external stakeholders. Although financial qualifications are not a prerequisite, the ideal candidate will be highly financially literate, familiar with business priorities in organisations of relevant complexity.
