Role overview

Working closely with the Principal, Senior Vice Principal and Vice Principals, the Director of Pastoral Care will hold a high-level of whole school responsibilities.

As a member of the school's senior leadership team, the successful applicant will be expected to be involved in, and to make a pro-active contribution to, all aspects of the life of the school. Not least of which is the school’s leadership and strategic development, identifying and taking every possible opportunity to improve, enhance and further the school's educational, pastoral, boarding and extracurricular provision.

In a city and a county which boast a good number of independent schools with resounding names and long histories, d’Overbroeck’s has, in a comparatively short time, established itself as a thriving, forward- looking and highly successful school with a robustly distinctive ethos, an outstanding staff team, and a strong reputation for the quality of its educational and pastoral provision.  The policy at d’Overbroeck’s is for everyone, staff and students, to be on first-name terms throughout the school. The school’s experience is that this fosters more mutual respect and truer, more motivating interactions between staff and students.

d’Overbroeck’s is a thriving, forward- looking and highly successful co-educational independent school in Oxford. We have a robustly distinctive ethos, an outstanding staff team, and a strong reputation for the quality of its educational and pastoral provision. The school has seen enormous growth in recent years, both in pupil numbers, and the service that we are able to provide to both our students and staff. This growth has brought substantially more physical space and enable the school to take its facilities and its educational provision to a whole new level in a host of areas including the sciences, art, music and drama, as well as its library, social and dining provision. It also creates the opportunity for a new role of Director Pastoral Care and Wellbeing at the school. The successful applicant will, therefore, join the school at an enormously exciting point in the school’s development.
