St Leonards is an HMC, IAPS and IB World School situated in the heart of the vibrant, historic and cosmopolitan university town of St Andrews, the ‘Home of Golf’. We make the most of our special location. St Leonards is close to sandy beaches, historic landmarks and stunning countryside. Edinburgh and Dundee Airports are within easy reach - approximately an hour’s flight from London. The school has close links with the University of St Andrews, one of the most prestigious universities in the UK.
St Leonards is in the enviable position of offering an exceptional range of academic, sporting, musical and creative possibilities. From a vantage point in one of the most inspiring places in the UK, St Leonards provides an outstanding education. We were the ‘Sunday Times Scottish Independent School of the Year’ for 2019. St Leonards is the only IB continuum school in Scotland. It is also one of the few in the UK and the only HMC school. The inquiry and concept-based approach to learning of the IB permeates all areas of school life, within and outside the classroom.
The School is fully co-educational with 575 boys and girls on the roll from Year 1 to Year 13 (P1 to S6). The School has three boarding houses (Ollerenshaw, St Rule and Bishopshall), lead by a Housemaster/mistress. Approximately 130 students board at St Leonards.
St Leonards School is seeking to recruit Resident House Tutors on a permanent, term-time only basis. Single accommodation is provided free of charge. The successful candidates will ensure the utmost care and welfare of our UK and international boarding students and will have outstanding communication and organisational skills. The ability to inspire our students to reach their full potential is essential along with the ability to empathise and deal with sensitive pastoral issues.
