Purpose of the Role

Reporting to the school’s Principal, the Vice Principal’s key responsibilities will be to ensure that the vision, mission and objectives of the school are implemented and that the school maintains an excellent reputation for providing first-class education in Oman.

The Vice Principal will be responsible for managing and coordinating all activities related to the Ministry of Education. These activities will include, but are not limited to, school visits, pupil registrations and MOE portals, inspection and review, and general compliance.

The post will also be responsible for the management, organisation, operation and administration of the school’s Arabic, Islamic and Social Studies Department. Arabic is the principal foreign language of the school and taught to all pupils in accordance with the Omani Ministry of Education requirements.

It is noted that the role of the Vice Principal is new to Downe House Muscat alongside the school itself; this role will therefore develop over time. It is likely that the specifics will change depending on the strengths of the successful candidate. The successful candidate should therefore expect to carry out other duties as requested by the Principal.
