The successful candidate will become a Trustee and will begin the transition into the role of Chair so that they are ready to step up to succeed Richard Cooper as Chair of the Board before he retires in July 2020.
After Amanda Britton’s first four years leading the School, it is now financially sound, outward looking and growing in stature. The new Chair has the opportunity to build on this work to steer the School in a step change to increase its profile nationally and worldwide and to ensure the stature of the School for the next 100 years, through a successful Centenary Campaign.
