Deputy Headmaster/Principal - Medbury Preparatory School

Reference Number: 437203aa

Location: Christchurch / Canterbury

  • Inspiring and highly skilled educationalist
  • Leading and innovative independent school for boys
  • Christchurch, New Zealand

Medbury Preparatory School, established in 1923, is an Independent Year 1-8 school for boys, recognised by parents and educators as one of Australasia’s leading preparatory schools.  Located in Christchurch, New Zealand, the school caters for 360 dayboys and boarders.  With small class sizes, Medbury School provides individual attention and support to each boy, attracting highly talented staff who inspire achievement and are dedicated to “unlocking the potential of every boy”.  The school enjoys a self-contained campus, offers a wide array of extra-curricular activities and has a strong school spirit underpinned by traditional Christian values.  Medbury School actively pursues educational excellence, encouraging a school environment where achievement is applauded and a place in the choir is as much sought after as a place in a sports team. 

This role will assist the Headmaster in ensuring the school is able to meet the needs of 21st century learners by providing a progressive, academically rich and student centred educational experience.  Equally, he/she will foster the traditions, values and ethos of Medbury which provide so much of its strength and defining character.

The specific brief for this role will be clarified in the New Year, following the arrival of Mr Ian Macpherson, Headmaster at which time further in-depth advertising will commence. 

We invite you to register initial expressions of interest now so that we can provide you with updated advertising details and role clarification once finalised in the New Year.

To register in strict confidence now, please complete the ‘apply for this job’ application form, attaching an expression of interest.  Emails will be electronically acknowledged and further correspondence may be by email.

For more information, please phone Andrea Bankier on 03 353 4365.
