Principal Role

Thank you for your interest in the London School of Theology and in the role of Principal.

As we state below, London School of Theology has been at the forefront of theological education in the UK for over 75 years and we believe is to be so, well into the future.

These are challenging times, but we believe that we have the facilities, the faculty and the finances to continue to make a major contribution.

We need a leader to enable that to happen – with a passion for people and a real heart for the gospel stemming from their personal walk with God. If you have a call to lead the institution and have the skills and passion that we need, it would be a please to discuss your interest further.
