    The Princethorpe Foundation

    Taking fundraising at Princethorpe to new heights


    This is an exciting opportunity, in an impressive group of schools, to significantly increase long-term philanthropic income by establishing a strategic fundraising programme for bursaries and capital projects based on best practice and sound experience, particularly in the area of major gifts.


    Founded in 1966, Princethorpe College is a Catholic, co-educational, HMC independent day school, near Rugby, for around 900 pupils aged 11-18.   It is part of the Princethorpe Foundation which also includes Crackley Hall School and The Crescent School which together have over 450 pupils aged 2-11. The Foundation prides itself on being a warm, kind and caring organisation, as well as being disciplined and aspirational. Central to its ethos is its renowned ‘Spirit of Family’.

    The Development Director will have responsibility for fundraising and establishing a long-term culture of giving at Princethorpe.  Excellent foundations have been laid in terms of alumni relations, data and fundraising campaigns, and the appointee will join a well-established and enthusiastic team.  Exciting opportunities lie with major gifts, fundraising for a new £8 million Science Centre and the scope to play a critical role in the long-term success of the Foundation.  Reporting to the Head, the Development Director will sit on the Princethorpe College leadership team.


    The successful candidate will be required to build a comprehensive fundraising strategy encompassing all elements of the fundraising mix for a wide and inspiring set of causes including life-changing bursaries, state-of-the-art facilities and other major capital projects. The role, focusing primarily on Princethorpe initially, is most likely suited to a highly experienced and passionate development professional with a proven track record of raising funds along with expertise in securing major gifts, regular giving, legacies, prospect pipeline management, campaigns, stewardship, relationship management, strategy and planning.  The experience and gravitas to build relationships and secure donations and support at all levels is also essential.
