The Kilmore International School seeks to employ a strategic and dynamic Deputy Principal to commence in Term 1, 2020 or earlier by negotiation.

The Kilmore International School (TKIS) is a regional, independent, non-denominational, co-educational boarding and day school, providing a world class education for more than 400 academically motivated local and international Years 3 – 12 students.

Established in 1989, TKIS is located in the charming and historic town within the educational precinct of Kilmore, in the Mitchell Shire less than an hour (60km) from Melbourne. It is located close to the beautiful Macedon Ranges and Kinglake National Park. Kilmore is a cultured, welcoming and vibrant community picturesquely situated within the Great Dividing Range.

TKIS has a reputation as a leading academic school with an impressive record of success in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Guided by the values and learner profile of the International Baccalaureate, TKIS is close-knit international learning community where local students gain a global perspective through connecting and engaging with other students from different societies and cultures.
