Head of Pre-Prep - September 2017

Hazlegrove seeks to appoint a dynamic and inspiring leader to join the Leadership Team of this happy, thriving and ambitious South West Prep School. 

This is an outstanding opportunity for the right candidate to play a pivotal role in the further development of a progressive, outward looking and reflective school. 

Hazlegrove is a leading independent Prep School in the South West with approximately 375 pupils including 100 full boarders and around 60 pupils in the Pre-Prep.  The school is located on a stunning 50 acre estate set within 200 acres of Somerset parkland.  It is a very special and unique school with an intangible sense of wellbeing.

The Pre-Prep is set within a self-contained purpose built facility and caters for pupils aged 2½ - 7.  Most lessons are taught there.  Pupils also benefit from the outstanding facilities in the Prep School.
