The resultant all-round education develops our pupils into well-rounded individuals who challenge themselves to ‘being our best’ in every aspect of life at the school, and beyond. Our innovative teaching and subsequent success starts in the Prep School and runs all the way through the Senior School and Sixth Form. 

An exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint an inspirational Assistant Housemaster or Housemistress to support and deputise for the Housemaster/ Housemistress in leading a Boarding house at St. Joseph’s College in Ipswich, from January 2019.

The Assistant Housemaster or Housemistress will be residential and have responsibility for the personal development, health and wellbeing of the students in their house. Each house comprises of a Housemaster or Housemistress, an Assistant Housemaster or Housemistress, a Graduate Assistant and a non-residential matron.
