This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join the middle leadership team of one of the most successful non-selective boarding schools in England.

The Head of House will lead a Day boarding house for boys aged 11-18. Ofsted has recognised boarding at Gordon’s as outstanding in each of its last four inspections and the House system is at the heart of the School’s success. 

Rugby is well established and is one of the School’s four major sports. The successful candidate will be required to establish an inclusive and forward thinking Rugby Development Plan to take rugby at Gordon’s to the next level.

For both roles high energy levels, a spirit of service and good inter-personal skills will be essential. 

Set in a beautiful 45-acre Surrey site, the school enjoys excellent facilities and an aspirational learning environment. Recognised by HM Chief Inspector of Schools as one of England’s finest non-selective schools, Gordon’s has circa 840 students including 240 residential boarders and a thriving sixth form. 

Massively over-subscribed, Gordon’s size ensures that every pupil is well known and nurtured as an individual. The School has a very strong emphasis on academic standards, self-discipline and traditional values and aims to be much more than just outstanding examination results, providing abundant opportunities outside the classroom and exceptional pastoral care.
