Belhaven Hill School

A Full Boarding & Day School for Boys and Girls aged 7-13 years



There is one vacancy:



We seek an experienced Bursar to lead the financial management of Scotland’s premier boarding preparatory school, to start in January 2020.

Belhaven Hill is special.  Known simply as ‘Belhaven’, its small size allows for a happy, fun environment in which children achieve outstanding academic results.  The candidate we seek will bring experience, innovation, reliability, professionalism and outstanding communication skills to this leadership role.  Belhaven welcomes day pupils, but is predominantly a ‘full-boarding’ school and the boarding ethos is central to school life.  The School has a roll of over 100 children, aged between 7 and 13 and is centred around a handsome listed house. It is set in 20 acres of beautiful grounds, close to the sea, some thirty miles east of Edinburgh.

Belhaven has a strong academic record and an enviable reputation for its pastoral care.  Heads at public schools say they can recognise our children instantly - a ‘Belhaven DNA’ which makes for charming all-rounders, who fit in with confidence and contribute to school life.

This is an exceptional opportunity to help lead a successful and ambitious school whilst enjoying a very high quality of life in the beautiful setting of Belhaven.
