Director of Admissions
Queen’s Gate is a thriving GSA day school for girls aged 4 –18 and is ideally situated in Central London to take advantage of the many educational opportunities on offer.
We wish to appoint from March 2024 an exceptional individual to deliver our admissions programme for all entry points. Queen’s Gate prides itself on the warm welcome we offer all our prospective families, providing personable, individualised attention alongside a smooth, professional experience for the young women seeking to join our school. As a key member of our Operations Staff, the Director of Admissions will report to the Principal, and work closely with the Director of Junior School and Marketing Team. They will be supported by our Communications & Examinations Assistant. As well as overseeing all aspects of the admissions process, the Director of Admissions will also have the opportunity to contribute towards the strategic direction of the School. A light-hearted, aspirational school, Queen’s Gate places great emphasis on our originality and creativity, and our generosity of spirit. It is hoped that the successful candidate will be able to model those qualities and ensure our admissions process reflects our core values. The Principal is keen to hear from top-class professionals whose skillsets and experience suit the specification, both those who have already spent time in the education sector, and those from other industries.
An information pack and application form may be downloaded from our website https://www.queensgate.org.uk/join-us/employment-opportunities/ When completed, the application form should be sent by email to email@example.com together with a covering letter to the Principal, to arrive no later than Friday, 1 December.
Queen’s Gate is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.

The School may carry out online searches on shortlisted applicants, for which all such applicants will be required to provide details of their online profile, including social media accounts, as part of their application. Prior to employment commencing, successful applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the (“DBS”). Successful applicants will also be required to produce evidence of qualifications, identity, and the right to work in the UK. Two references will be taken up, one of which will be with the most recent employer. They will also be required to complete our Health Questionnaire. All those working at Queen’s Gate share in our responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of the children and young people in our care. This will include completing regular training and maintaining a good awareness of key policies and procedures relating to our safeguarding duties. Where a role has specific or additional responsibilities in relation to safeguarding, this will be detailed within the job description.
