Part-time & full-time available (up to 46 hours per week)
Working across six days a week (Mon – Sat) during term time (32 weeks a year)
This is a unique opportunity to join one of the leading schools in the UK as Uppingham seeks to expand its entire matron provision across all its boarding houses.
We are seeking House Matrons to play a key role building on the School’s very high reputation for pastoral care, where you will work alongside existing boarding house teams to deliver excellent care to our pupils aged 13-18. Opportunities are available in both girls’ and boys’ boarding houses.
Your key duties will include ensuring pupils feel safe and are aware of the support available to them, providing pastoral care on a daily basis, assessing pupils who are ill or injured as well as ensuring required service standards are met in cleaning, maintenance, laundry and catering provision.
The boarding houses are central to life at the School and you will be too. An Uppingham house is very much an extended home. Each boarding house aims to represent a full spectrum of the personalities, characters and talent found across the School. All houses have their own dining room and a linked kitchen, which makes house dining an important feature of Uppingham’s pastoral care. Meal times are a combination of formal lunches where visitors and a rotation of visiting staff are welcomed and more informal suppers and breakfasts which all offer a good chance for staff to engage with pupils and for pupils to feel at home.
If you are confident with IT-based admin, enjoy working as part of a team and can combine efficiency with friendliness and a genuine care for the welfare of our pupils, we would be delighted to hear from you. Experience in a care-based industry and of working with young people is desirable.
In return, we can offer a variety of benefits, such as:
· Pension scheme
· Private Health care: the School pays 50% premiums (pro-rata for part-time staff)
· Full membership of Uppingham School Sports Centre for an annual fee only of £15 for full-time employees, pro-rated monthly membership for part-time employees Free membership of dual-use Sports Centre (£15 joining fee)
· Free staff lunches in term-time
