Term Time

One post (Year 9) required from September 2018 and one (Year 10) from January 2019.

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 new 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
