St. Christopher School is a distinctive day and boarding school in Letchworth Garden City welcoming 550 girls and boys aged 3 to 18. Founded in 1915 in the vanguard of progressive independent education, our community continues to evolve as a place where children and adults work together to enable everyone to achieve their best.

We seek a new Head for September 2020 to build on the successes of Richard Palmer who is retiring after 14 years of exceptional service to the School. Working within an open, tolerant and ambitious school community, our new Head will lead St. Christopher into the next chapter in its development, building on a strong platform of academic, pastoral and co-curricular success.

Our new Head will share our vision of liberal education, ensuring that St. Christopher’s values of democratic self-government, internationalism, mutual respect, creativity and individuality are further strengthened. We seek a dynamic, warm and engaging leader, who will  inspire our whole community to even greater success. A record of success in senior leadership, strong strategic skills and a demonstrable commitment to our ethos are essential.

St. Christopher School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The successful candidate must be willing to undergo an enhanced disclosure through the Disclosure and Barring Service.
