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. 

It’s your opportunity to join the friendly, welcoming and supportive team here at Woldingham School. Close to London yet in an outstandingly beautiful rural setting, Woldingham is a happy and successful Catholic boarding and day school for girls aged 11 to 18.

Woldingham is a truly unique school with an equally unique culture and philosophy. Building on a proud heritage that stretches back 175 years, we’re now driving an exciting future that’s underpinned by forward thinking, an innovative spirit and state-of-the-art facilities – all alive with the creative energy of over 500 young minds. Our goal is to develop confident and compassionate young women who are curious, ambitious and ready to take on the challenges of today’s world.

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.

So, 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.

Salary: Woldingham Pay Scale. All staff receive free lunches and coffee.

Woldingham School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS report will be required for the successful candidate.

Our professional team of staff is Woldingham’s greatest asset, and we want to ensure that everyone is supported to work in an effective, enjoyable and fulfilling way. Staff Development is a high priority, with an annual cycle of Personal Professional Development planning for all colleagues. 

Staff are welcome to use our range of outstanding facilities including the gym, squash and tennis courts and the swimming pool. Our Staffroom Committee organises regular social events, and individual members of staff have even organised yoga classes and reflexology on site.
