Fettes College, one of the UK’s pre-eminent independent schools, and Bright Scholar, the largest operator of international and bilingual K-12 schools in China, seek an outstanding Head of Middle School to play a key role in establishing and leading Fettes College Guangzhou (FCGZ). Opening in the Zengcheng District of Guangzhou in September 2020, this exciting new venture will bring the Fettes ethos to the Guangzhou area, one of China’s largest and most dynamic cities. FCGZ will be a co-educational boarding and day school with capacity for 2,394 pupils aged 2-18.

The successful candidate will lead the Middle School which will grow to 500 students aged 11 to 13 and will offer the Chinese National Curriculum with enrichment from the PYP and MYP. This is an exciting opportunity to play a part in the creation of a new school and in the establishment of FCGZ at the forefront of international education in China.

The Head of Middle School will bring a track record of successful senior or middle leadership experience, strong organisational management skills and a collaborative style. He or she will build the Middle School team as FCGZ grows and will inspire students, staff and parents alike in the pursuit of excellence. Full boarding will start in the Middle School and therefore an appreciation, ideally but not necessarily gained through experience, of leadership in a boarding school is important. A commitment to holistic education and a genuine resonance with the FCGZ aims and ethos is essential.
