We are seeking to appoint a Deputy Head of Boarding, in the first instance on a one year fixed-term contract from September 2019 to support the Head of Boarding in running our integral and vibrant boarding house. There is the possibility of accommodation with the role should this be required.
De Aston is a genuinely comprehensive school currently with close to 1000 learners, about 50 of those learners are boarders who come from a wide range of countries. Though they make up only a small proportion of the total school number they have a major influence on the school as a whole. Our boarders bring a multi-cultural dimension to our school and add an international flavour that is welcomed and celebrated by the school as a whole.
We are a school which enjoys an outstanding reputation based on academic success but with a strong emphasis on pastoral care. We are also a school that invests greatly in extra-curricular opportunities. We are also part of the Lincoln Teaching School Alliance through which we train and develop all aspects of teaching and support. De Aston has outstanding facilities in a pleasant environment situated on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Please contact Neil Huddlestone for further details and an application form or download an application pack from the school’s website.
Closing date: Friday 6th September 2019 at 1.00pm
