The Head of Cheltenham College invites applications for the post of Housemaster/Housemistress (HsM), starting in September 2019

The HsM has a vital role in leading the development of the pastoral, academic, co-curricular and general wellbeing of the boys in his/her care. 

The Role

Cheltenham College is an inspiring place to live and work and we are looking for someone to encourage and challenge the boys of Hazelwell House to achieve their very best.

We view education as something that happens in all areas of school life, not just in the classroom, therefore the HsM of Hazelwell House needs to be able to help each individual boy in his care to make the best of every opportunity afforded him. The HsM plays a vital role in ensuring that the boys who leave the house are confident, mature, civilised young people who can go on to be successful in their lives.

We have an excellent team of HsMs who work closely together, meeting regularly to share good practice as well as to iron out any difficulties. Therefore, it is crucial that the new HsM is a team player who is willing to work collaboratively with others and share College’s ethos.

The successful candidate would need to be someone who can get the very best from their team of tutors, matrons and domestic staff.

Following the arrival of new Head, Nicola Huggett in September 2018, College has entered in to a very exciting period of growth and development.  We are looking for somebody who will relish being a key part of the College community during this time.

Closing date for applications is: 10am prompt on Monday, 28 January 2019.
