Head - Spain

The British School of Córdoba is seeking to appoint an experienced and outstanding Headteacher to commence either September 2019 or January 2020.

The two form entry school with 550 pupils on roll from 3-18 serves the historic city of Cordoba in Andalucia and surrounding area. The school has two sites; an EYFS building 500 metres from the main site which is for pupils from Year 1 to Year 13.

It has established itself as the leading private school in the area offering a high quality British education with strengths in its child-centred learning, its central, values based programmes, the personalisation of learning, strong university entry (4 students have places at Oxbridge this year) and the positive, friendly atmosphere that permeates the buildings.

The students follow the National Curriculum complemented by courses in Spanish language and culture taught in Spanish. In the sixth form, the students take A levels supplemented by studies in Spanish in key subjects.

The school has gained prestige within Spain and has been included in the list of best international schools published in El Mundo, a national newspaper for the last 4 years. Of the 70+ British schools in Spain, it is the only school to be awarded the quality mark for its values based education by the VbE organisation. In a recent inspection (the report will be published soon) all teaching was considered good to outstanding and there were no major weaknesses identified.
