These titles will vary from school to school and district to district.
I'm trying to understand what the difference between "school director" and headmaster/principal is:
Here is the definition of headmaster:
a male teacher who is in charge of a school, especially a private school
And here is a description of a school director's responsibilities:
What does a School Director do for our District?
So is there any difference between school director and headmaster/principal or are these terms interchangeable?

I haven't heard School Director used in the UK.
Also, I think 'headmaster' is primarily reserved for use with private schools, whereas public schools have principals or superintendents, at least here in the U.S.
School director sounds more like a title for some kind of specialized art/dance/music/craft school versus your basic elementary school.
A headmaster is defined as being a teacher ...
There is nothing in that advertisement for a director requiring the applicant to be a teacher, and there are several indications that you don't need to be one to be a director.
