Head - Lady Eleanor Holles International School Foshan

South West London
07 Feb

Applications are invited for the Head of Lady Eleanor Holles International School Foshan (LEH Foshan).

LEH Foshan opened its doors in September 2020 in a partnership between Lady Eleanor Holles School (LEH), one of England’s oldest and most successful girls’ schools, and TrumpTech, a leading provider of education services in China and Hong Kong.

LEH Foshan is the first British international school in Foshan, a dynamic city in southern China with excellent transport links to Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou, and was founded to provide students with the opportunity to experience a British curriculum, learning style and environment, combining high academic standards with a wide range of extra-curricular activities. A co-educational boarding and day school, LEH Foshan blends the traditions of LEH in the UK with the vibrancy of modern China.

The founding team have carefully shaped an educational offer based on an understanding of LEH’s ethos and commitment to holistic education and the particular circumstances of Foshan. For the next Head, this will be a career-defining leadership challenge building on the excellent work completed to date. The Head will oversee school growth and will be excited by the opportunities, rewards, challenges and commercial imperatives of leading a young school. This position requires an individual with intellect and perspicacity; a leader with deep cultural awareness who can inspire a diverse team to deliver an exceptional British style education shaped to meet the needs of a Chinese context.

Success in the role will require proven leadership, contextual understanding, adaptability, vision for education and the gravitas to act as a credible ambassador to a range of audiences, complemented by commercial acumen and the personal drive to build on this young school’s early success in a dynamic market.
