Charterhouse is a beautiful school and a wonderful place to live and work. It was founded in 1611 and moved to its present magnificent 250-acre site near Godalming in Surrey in 1872. Few schools can offer such a splendid backdrop for teaching and learning, and the School community is very strong, with excellent relationships between pupils and staff.
As part of our ambitious new plans, and building on the success of our mixed Sixth Form, we are excited to be moving to full coeducation from the age of 13 and look forward to welcoming our first girls into the Fourth Form (Year 9) in September 2021, the year in which we will celebrate half a century of girls at Charterhouse. There will be girls in every year group from September 2023. The pupil roll will grow over the next decade from 800 today to around 1,000, with the increase representing additional places for girls. We have all seen first-hand the benefits of coeducation in our Sixth Form, which is highly regarded by both boys and girls. We now want to extend those social, cultural and academic advantages to the whole community. With our move to coeducation, we aim to bring out the very best in all pupils, in all years.
We are seeking an experienced and highly professional individual to take on the position of Admissions Registrar to work in a very busy department. The number of families applying to Charterhouse at 13+ entry has grown exponentially over the last two years and the forecast for the future is for further growth. This has resulted in the need to grow the admissions team and appoint a senior role within the team. This new role of Admissions Registrar will be responsible to the Director of Admissions and his/her main responsibility will be to manage and administer the Under School admissions process.
The post holder will be highly motivated, bringing energy, drive and initiative to achieve the School’s enrolment strategy, and be highly adept at delivering a warm, welcoming approach, guiding prospective parents through the admissions process. The successful candidate will be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and have excellent administration, IT, managerial and people skills. This is a challenging and extremely rewarding role.
For any informal queries please telephone Agata Scott-Hubbard, HR Manager, on 01483 291506.
