Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Permanent

Lomond School is a day and boarding school offering an independent education to boys and girls from age 3 to age 18. We have approximately 400 pupils with the Boarding House, ‘Burnbrae’ accommodating up to 60 young people from the age of 9.

Lomond School is the only school in the West of Scotland with boarding. We have a modern, purpose built, boarding house which houses both boys and girls. Our boarders come from Britain as well as other countries around the world, adding an important international and multi-cultural dimension to our school.

The ethos of boarding at Lomond is that of a large family and the quality of care and the welfare of the pupils are uppermost. We firmly believe that Burnbrae is a home. Busy, happy, purposeful are epithets that are commonly used and young men and women are able to grow up in an atmosphere where freedom, trust and responsibility have their place alongside discipline, supervision and encouragement. We believe that we have the balance right whilst recognising the necessity of responding to the needs of the individual.

To assist in ensuring the continuation of the high standard of care our Boarders and their families expect, we are now looking to recruit a Boarding Houseparent and Assistant Houseparent for the start of the 2018-19 academic year.

This is a full-time residential position during term time and duties will be primarily based in the boarding house.

This position is a responsible and weighty one. Requiring resilience, patience, clear-sightedness, compassion, strength and an unfailing sense of humour. Perhaps needless to say, it is also one of the most rewarding roles in the Boarding School environment.

All applicants should be registered with a professional body such as GTCS, SSSC or NMC or be eligible for registration.

The closing date for this vacancy is 12 noon on Monday 18th December with interviews taking place in January 2018.
