Boarding & Day Housemistress/ Master 

Hallward’s House takes a mixture of boarding, day-boarding and day girls. The House motto ’Believe in yourself and the world is yours’ is something that the girls are encouraged to truly believe. 

We require a Housemistress / Master to lead a busy boarding and day house and to manage the staffing, organisation and resources of the house in order to ensure the safety, wellbeing and personal development of the girls. A clear understanding of the pastoral needs of girls is essential, as is an awareness of the demands of a full time residential boarding post where flexibility, resilience and commitment are required.

The position arises owing to the retirement of the present incumbent, Mrs Karen Pickles. Potential candidates who would like to know more about the House may contact her for an informal conversation on 0117 315 7411.

Closing date for all applications: 5pm Wednesday 27th September 2017.
