Director of Finance and Strategic Development - The Royal Hospital School

The Royal Hospital School was founded in 1712 in Greenwich London, to improve navigation through education and, as it prepared boys for a life at sea, many went on to become explorers and pioneers of their time. Today the Royal Hospital School is set in 200 acres of beautiful Suffolk countryside overlooking the Stour Estuary and within an hour of London. It is a leading independent, co-educational boarding and day school for around 750 pupils from 11 to 18 years, providing a full and broad education, fit for the modern world.

The Governors and Headmaster now seek to appoint an experienced Director of Finance and Strategic Development to build on the excellent work of the previous five years and to contribute to the further development of the School’s financial strategy alongside the continued management and care of its assets, resources and estate. As a full member of the Senior Leadership Team, the Director of Finance and Strategic Development will play a pivotal role in both the day to day running of the School and its overall strategic development. The successful candidate will join during an exciting period of growth in terms of reputation, pupil numbers, capital development and will provide plenty of opportunities to be part of an ambitious and forward-looking institution.
