We seek a vibrant, servant-hearted leader for this thriving Christian school. We provide a high quality learner-centred education for expatriate children in Dhaka, Bangladesh, based on a British curriculum and conducted in a Christian environment.


Grace is oversubscribed: currently we have 240 students, from over 30 nationalities. We have 3 campuses: Early Years (aged 3-6), Primary School (aged 6-11), and Secondary School (aged 11-16). We follow the English National Curriculum. We are a not-for-profit independent Christian School firstly serving the mission and Christian expatriate community, but welcoming students from all international backgrounds.


This is an opportunity to lead a supportive, committed team. We seek a leader with a heart for mission and a personal Christian faith and active spiritual life which is sustaining and fresh.

  • The resilience and sense of humour needed to deal with complex issues of types which are beyond any one person’s strengths.

  • An energy, imagination and vision for how this Christian school should develop – and the ability to convey this to a team of colleagues and other stakeholders in the school community.


We can offer:


  • Happy, friendly and lively students with a culture of learning and academic success

  • Small classes enabling students to receive a good level of support and extension

  • A school community with a Christian ethos of care and respect for all

  • Well maintained and resourced buildings
