With small class sizes, Medbury School provides individual attention and support to each boy, attracting highly talented staff who inspire achievement and are dedicated to “unlocking the potential of every boy”. The school enjoys a self-contained campus, offers a wide array of extra-curricular activities and has a strong school spirit underpinned by traditional Christian values. Medbury School actively pursues educational excellence, encouraging a school environment where achievement is applauded and a place in the choir is as much sought after as a place in a sports team.

Proven curriculum development skills and a positive team focus are essential, along with analytical skills in the use of data to inform decisions. A deep understanding of boys and their education is essential, and experience as a staff member or pupil in the independent school sector would be advantageous.
