Perth, Western Australia has been identified as one of the world’s most sought-after and desirable places to live due to its superb climate, relaxed lifestyle, family-oriented qualify of life, and a strong economy. Catering to the growing Muslim community of Western Australia, Langford Islamic College is a wholly independent School (Elementary and High School), has stood the test of time and shows an ongoing ability to define its unique identity for its 1000-plus students and passionate, people-centered stakeholders. Their popularity as a strong faith-based school is illustrated by a waitlist of over 250 students.

To embark on their next stage of growth and improvement fuelled by this demand, they are seeking their next headmaster/headmistress, a natural leader who carries a personable, professional, and transformational ethos, a leader who can be the catalyst for the school and its students to progress to the next level in many areas.

  • Establishing a management vision for the School.
  • Exercising Islamic-like wisdom and discernment in leading staff, students, and parents.

    operation of the School.

Most importantly, this Principal will lead, develop, and promote the academic and creative reputation of the School in alignment with the School’s strategic direction. To achieve this, a true educational leader is what is required; a visionary, a strong people engager, someone who creates the future, and compels others to strive in tandem. Western Australia schools are running in physical environments as currently, we have had no community cases of COVID since May 2020. Your proven leadership experience, combined with a faultless reputation for integrity, engagement, and stakeholder partnership will place you in an excellent position for this fantastic leadership opportunity.
