This is a unique school where we combine dynamic teaching and learning with traditional expectations that are rooted in a long and proud history. RMS is committed to educating young women to be creative, enthusiastic and generous contributors to an ever-changing world.

To be successful, the candidate must have a collaborative approach, a strong eye for detail as well as excellent organisation and communication skills, both written and verbal.

The Head of Admissions will provide a professional, first class and bespoke customer journey and is responsible for providing a smooth and highly efficient service for the entire admissions process from initial enquiries, though to the organisation of events, registrations and enrolment.
