Windermere School, the Sunday Times International Baccalaureate School of the Year 2018, is an IB World and Round Square School stunningly situated in the heart of the Lake District and overlooking the shores of Windermere.
Head of Windermere International Summer School and Holiday Programmes
The Headmaster, Ian Lavender, invites applications for the post of Head of Windermere International Summer School and Holiday Programmes. The school currently operates four International Summer School courses in July and August each year with students from around the world developing their English skills and enjoying the Lake District. The Head of the International Summer School is also responsible for all holiday programmes which take place during Easter and Summer.
The previous post holders were instrumental in constructing the business plan, revising the educational programme on each of the courses, growing the International Summer School and securing Accreditation from the British Council in 2014 and re-accreditation during last year’s programmes.
This position is likely to suit someone with a strong desire to take responsibility for a growing part of the business of Windermere Educational Trust. It is envisaged that the International Summer School could generate a quarter of the income of the main School. It is a separate business within the Educational Trust, but bound by the same educational principles. Students who attend any one of the four International Summer School courses may attend the programme for several years and some may transfer to the main School. As such, it helps to support the main School and the work of the Admissions department. The branding, ethos and code of conduct is the same as that throughout Windermere Educational Trust.
This is a commercial role but for someone with an understanding of education, especially in an international context. The successful candidate could well be a graduate with very strong administrative skills, but also with a commitment to developing and growing this vibrant part of the business.
