Start date: Required from April 2019
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Competitive
Contract term: Permanent

Woldingham is a happy and successful Catholic boarding and day school for girls aged 11 to 18 and is firmly established as one of the top girls’ independent schools in the UK, outperforming many schools that are far more selective in their admissions process. Central to this achievement is Woldingham’s academic enrichment and extra-curricular programmes, pastoral support and caring community. Close to London, yet in an outstandingly beautiful rural setting, Woldingham has a strong community and culture building on a proud heritage that stretches back 175 years. We are committed to an exciting future that is underpinned by fresh ideas, an innovative spirit and state-of-the-art facilities.

With experience of working with young people, you have a natural empathy with teenagers. You understand how they think and you can help to build a strong sense of community within which every student supports each other to live happy and fulfilled lives. So bring your talents to a role that’s as diverse and challenging as it is rewarding. 

You will play your part in achieving that as you take responsibility for the well being of girls within the House. Providing key support to the Housemistress in the smooth day-to-day running of the House, you will also help to oversee the pastoral care and academic progress of day girls and boarders.

As well as excellent communication skills, you should bring strong administrative abilities and a well-organised approach. A friendly, nurturing and sympathetic attitude is also important, alongside upholding the highest standards of discipline. High levels of energy and stamina are needed to make the most of this residential post
