Opportunity: Head at The Mead School, Tunbridge Wells

A dynamic, experienced, inspirational leader is sought for the headship of this highly regarded co-educational day prep school, located in the thriving spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells.

With 240 pupils aged 3 to 11, The Mead School is located in the heart of Tunbridge Wells, approximately 400 metres from the historic Pantiles. The school draws families from Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding towns and villages and appeals to a broad cross-section of the local community. The school’s culture is built around a belief that a child who is happy, inspired and secure in school is one who is going to learn, thrive and aspire. School must be an exciting, fulfilling and safe place where every day is a new adventure and positively anticipated.
The Mead strongly believes that every child should feel success, realise potential and become a life-long learner. To this end the development of the ‘whole child’ is at the heart of all the school does. The school is a true community. Sited in a large Victorian villa, it is run as a large family living under one roof. The school operates with two - form entry from Reception to Year 6 ensuring the small teaching groups within which children thrive whilst providing a larger social pool and ever broader experiences.
Outside, the school benefits from a recently installed Astroturf pitch, and excellent play areas which were jointly funded by the school and a highly supportive parent organisation, Friends of The Mead. The school’s position in the historic heart of Tunbridge Wells enables pupils to benefit from all that the town and its wider environment has to offer.
Since May 2016, The Mead School has been a member of the Wishford Schools group. Wishford Schools is a leading group of independent prep and senior schools. The group strives to ensure pupils are happy, confident and well prepared. Standards and expectations are high, and staff and pupils are challenged and supported to give their best. Heads work closely with the group’s leadership team to define the school’s strategy and then enjoy the autonomy to run their schools, while benefiting from the support that membership of the group brings.

Please see the candidate pack for full details. Candidates are welcome to contact Sam Antrobus, for a confidential discussion before applying, and visits to the school can be arranged.
