Saint Ignatius' College, Adelaide is a leading Catholic, coeducational, day school conducted by the Jesuits and inspired by the Ignatian charism. The College caters for over 1,400 students across an Early Years and Junior Campus (R-6) and a Senior Campus (7-12).
Established in 1951, the mission of the College is to provide a premium education that encourages students to a life-long development of their faith and service. It aims to produce people of conscience, compassion, competence and commitment who make the world a better place. The College has a proud record of excellent academic results and supporting all students to reach their potential.
The current Head of Junior School retires at the end of 2017, creating an exciting leadership opportunity. The College therefore invites applications from appropriately qualified, experienced and passionate candidates for the position.
The successful applicant will be an outstanding junior years educational leader providing vision for teaching and learning within the 21st century context. Working closely with the newly appointed and first lay Principal, Peter Coffey, and the new Rector, Fr Peter Hosking SJ, he or she will be a role model for staff and students, with the warmth, energy, enthusiasm and capacity to motivate, inspire and give witness to a faith that does justice for all members of the College community. As a leader within the Australian Jesuit mission, the new Head of Junior School will be a practising Catholic with a desire to embrace Ignatian spirituality and explore how this informs the College’s ways of proceeding.
