Ampleforth CollegeNorth Yorkshire

Ampleforth is one of Europe’s foremost Catholic boarding schools, committed to all round excellence and academic ambition. This post will provide the successful applicant with the opportunity to join us in working with students to cultivate learning as an attitude, a value for life. 

We seek to appoint a practising Roman Catholic Housemaster to start in September 2021, however, a January 2022 start may also be considered for the right applicant. 

The Housemaster represents pastoral support for all students within the House and is responsible for all aspects of safety, welfare and formation of the students in their care. This is a demanding and immensely rewarding role where no two days are ever the same. 

The successful candidate will have a PGCE or equivalent; any relevant subject offered by Ampleforth College will be acceptable. Housemasters teach a reduced timetable of about half, and many Housemistresses and Housemasters contribute to games or co-curricular activities. 

We are seeking an experienced teacher who is interested in the formation of young people and in developing a culture of delight in learning within the house. 

The position comes with family accommodation and a range of benefits. 

The closing date for applications will be Monday, 17 May 2021 at Midday. 

Interviews are expected to take place on Thursday, 20 and Friday 21 May 2021.
