For September 2018 we have created a new role of House Matron for each of our four Residential Boarding Houses and are now looking for candidates who are enthusiastic, friendly and committed to the personal, social and academic development of young people to fill these roles.   

The House Matron will work alongside the Houseparents and House Tutors to assist in the smooth running of the House and assist with the welfare of the students in the House.

The hours are 8am to 4pm Monday to Friday term time, plus assistance at main school events including the four main Parades, Christmas and end of year parents’ social events. 

 Set in a beautiful 45 acre Surrey site, the School enjoys excellent facilities and an aspirational learning environment. Gordon’s is recognised by HM Chief Inspector of Schools as one of Britain’s finest non-selective schools, with circa 840 students including 200 residential boarders and a thriving sixth form.  In 2017, the percentage of students achieving five or more GCSE grades A* to C, including English and mathematics, was 92%. The A*-C pass rate at A-Level was 90%, with 72% of the grades A* to B. These results rank Gordon's amongst the top non-selective schools in England for progress and attainment.  

Massively over-subscribed, Gordon’s size ensures that every student is well known and nurtured as an individual. The School has a very strong emphasis on academic standards, self-discipline and traditional values and aims to deliver much more than just outstanding examination results, providing abundant opportunities outside the classroom and exceptional pastoral care.
