We are seeking to appoint a Head of Boarding / Housemaster/Housemistress at Terra Nova School for September 2019. This is an exciting time to assume leadership of this important aspect of Terra Nova life as the school looks to develop its strategic plan, in which boarding is expected to play an integral part and the successful candidate a significant role, as we welcome international boarders for the first time.
The role is open to either male or female applicants and we would also welcome a couple operating jointly as Houseparents. The Head of Boarding will work alongside a committed and experienced team of matrons and tutors and will be responsible to the Deputy Head for all matters related to the Boarding House. The successful candidate will demonstrate sympathy with the vision of Terra Nova, which is to create a forward thinking, internationally minded environment that allows young people to grow, explore, thrive and question.
Terra Nova aims to provide the highest academic standards whilst providing our children with a full programme of extra-curricular activity and giving them a real appreciation of moral and ethical values. Applications are invited from both teachers, who in addition to reduced teaching roles will be wanting to contribute to the wider life of the school, and non-teaching staff looking for a more pastoral role. It will be a requirement of the appointment for the successful candidate to live on site, and suitable, self-contained accommodation will be provided.
We are looking to create a place where children are cared for and nurtured in a safe environment. A place where children come first.
