Job Description

Dear Applicants,

Welcome to St Mary’s School. We have been educating girls from Colchester and the surrounding areas since 1908 and as such have built a very strong reputation within our local community. Throughout this time the school has grown in size and is now located on two sites. The Senior School is close to the town centre whilst the Lower School and Kindergarten enjoy a more rural location.

St Mary’s is a happy and thriving school. We are proud of each and every one of our pupils and know that “happy girls are high achievers”.

The Senior Leadership Team at St Mary’s is small and the positive and collective vision of the team has ensured the success of the school. The Governors and I are looking to recruit someone who has a broad commercial background and a proven ability to work as part of a dynamic team. The role of the Bursar is a full time position, although applicants able to work four days per week or more will be considered, if they can demonstrate an ability to work and delegate very efficiently. We are looking for someone to start in January 2021.

If you believe that you can rise to the broad and challenging expectations of the role of Bursar in a leading independent school and you have a genuine desire to work in an environment that has the needs of its students at its heart, I look forward to hearing from you.

Mrs Hilary Vipond
