An excellent opportunity has arisen to join the middle leadership team of one of the most successful boarding schools in England. 

Residential boarding at Gordon’s has been recognised by Ofsted in each of its last four inspections as offering outstanding boarding provision.  The house system is at the heart of the school and each student is considered a boarder. 

The couple appointed will be responsible for the leadership and management of the House of approximately 80 girls. High energy levels, a spirit of service and good inter-personal skills will be essential. Typically, at least one of each applicant couple will be a teacher.

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 240 residential boarders and a thriving sixth form. 

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 be much more than just outstanding examination results, providing abundant opportunities outside the classroom and exceptional pastoral care.
