Firmly rooted in the local Bournemouth community, Park School is a vibrant, thriving prep school and nursery of around 300 children. Our popular Nursery takes babies from the age of three months until most join the main school at the age of four. 

Our school enjoys a reputation for excellence but above all, it is a happy school, where children feel safe, valued and supported by strong relationships with their teachers and their friends. Our nurturing environment supports children to try their hardest in all that they do, inspiring learning through innovation and exciting teaching. What we care about most is developing well-rounded and complete young people; your child will move on from us with confidence, ready for life’s challenges.

We are seeking a passionate and inspiring Bursar to play an integral part in not only the Senior Leadership Team, the staff and the wider community as well as well as working closely with the Forfar Board of Governance. Reporting to the Head, you will play an integral role in long-term strategic development and planning of the school and nursery as well as leading the entire operations of the school across HR, Finance, Estates, Catering and Cleaning. 

The ideal candidate will have a strong commercial acumen, with a relevant qualification and membership, ideally gained within Finance or School Business Management and have a commitment to making a difference. The ability to build relationships and credibility with senior stakeholders is key, as is the capability to support multiple teams. 

You will be an exceptional leader, who will be a role model for the support team, who has the credibility and confidence to liaise with the academic staff, parents, pupils and group level alike. An approachable and flexible manner is essential, as you will be expected to play an integral role in the day-to-day school.
