Greenwich Steiner School is an independent school offering a very special form of education to children aged 3 to 14. We educate around 180 children from ages 3 to 14.
Its mission is to provide a holistic and nurturing education that inspires children to develop a love of learning, the courage to question, the ability to express their individuality and to make a positive contribution to the world around them. We aim to create a joyful learning experience for children of all cultural, racial, social and religious backgrounds. We strive to provide an education imbued with a fundamental respect for the individuality of each human being.
Our school has a number of exiting challenges ahead of it including the expansion of early years and upper school provision as well as improvements to existing provision. Financially the school is on a solid footing having recently refinanced its existing operations, and we have recently appointed a new management team with the right skills and the energy and inspiration to take the school forward. We want to ensure that we have a board of governors with sufficient capability and capacity to support this ongoing expansion and improvement of provision.
We are particularly keen to recruit an independent Treasurer, with financial acumen, to complement the existing cohort of governors who are also parents.
The Treasurer is a key post, reporting to the Chair and the Board of Governors. Their role is to help the board ensure that the schools’ finances are managed well, including by providing adequate support and challenge to the Bursar. The term of office is for a minimum of one year, renewable thereafter by mutual agreement.
