£12,973.90 actual salary per annum – Fixed term January - March 2019

Term Time Only. 

West Town was founded in 1991, as a House solely for day girls. In West Town it is hoped that all girls will reach their potential and will strive for excellence.

The main function of this post is to be an adult present in the House and be responsible for the welfare of pupils by assisting the House Mistress and her team in the supervision of the health and welfare of the pupils, and the physical building within which they live.

Our Matrons are directly responsible to their House Mistress and must therefore build an excellent working relationship with them, using open and regular lines of communication with the whole House team. The successful candidate will also need to liaise regularly in a professional manner with parents and other employees of the College, particularly the Health Centre, Laundry, and Works department. Above all, there is an expectation that you will be a parent figure who is generous with their time and responsive to the needs of the pupils.

The post requires someone who likes and understands young people and is able to demonstrate good sense. They should have good personal inter-active skills with young people and their parents and guardians by being a good listener, flexible in outlook, reliable, warm and friendly in disposition, with sufficient sensitivity to show tact and diplomacy. A sense of humour and an even temper, dealing with all situations in a co-operative and sensitive manner, are also fundamental to carrying out this job effectively. The nature of the work – in a multi-level building with many rooms - requires a good level of fitness.

Please see job description for further information.

We require a Matron to support the House Mistress and work the following hours:

Monday 8am – 6.15pm

Wednesday 8am – 5pm

Thursday 8am – 4pm

Friday 8am -5pm
