Competitive Salary based on qualifications and experience

Required September 2021

Tormead is an interdenominational, academically selective, independent day school for girls. There are c.720 girls aged 4-18. It is a member of the Girls’ Schools Association (GSA).

The School, founded in 1905, stands in grounds close to the centre of Guildford. The Senior School caters for girls aged from eleven to eighteen and the Junior School, organised as a largely self-contained unit on an adjacent site, provides for girls aged from four to eleven. Almost all girls in the Junior School gain admission to the Senior School at the age of eleven. More than half of eleven year old entrants are drawn from many other schools, both independent and maintained sectors.

The School has completed a major redevelopment of classrooms and dining hall; specialist accommodation includes a range of Science and Technology rooms, a Sports hall and Gymnasium and a Performing Arts Centre for music and drama. Tennis and netball courts on site are supplemented by our Surrey Sports Park partnership which enables us to use state of the art sports facilities.
