Celebrating over 800 years of tradition and the search for Truth, Blackfriars Priory School remains the Dominican Friars only Australian school. Founded in 1953 on the northern fringe of the Adelaide business district, Blackfriars provides modern facilities with world-class tuition for around 900 boys from ELC (co-ed) to Year 12. The School builds on the Dominican tradition by engaging spirit, mind and body in the pursuit of knowledge. A committed team of approximately 100 staff and a vibrant, culturally diverse and inclusive School community, Blackfriars is regarded as one of Australia’s finest independent Catholic boys’ schools.
Reporting directly to the Principal and overseeing both pastoral and academic outcomes, responsibilities will include:
- ensuring an inspiring and contemporary learning community where boys develop as resilient, connected and engaged young men;
- fostering a team of dedicated and progressive professionals and a supportive and inclusive workplace and community culture;
- leading the operations of the Senior School;
- deputising for the Principal in regard to the management and development of the School’s financial, physical and, most importantly, people assets.
Applications are encouraged from appropriately qualified and experienced individuals with excellent communication, negotiation, leadership, strategic planning and commercial management skills, complemented by the warmth, integrity, authenticity, energy and passion necessary to engage with and inspire the School community. A fundamental appreciation of and alignment to the Catholic ethos within the Dominican tradition is essential in this pivotal and career defining leadership role.
