RGS maintenance department is going through an exciting time of restructure and development. We are seeking a self-motivated, positive, team player to join the maintenance and grounds team and contribute to the department’s improvement and progression, mainly focussing on working in the boarding house.
Purpose of the Role: To provide general maintenance with particular responsibility for boarding and to assist the maintenance and grounds teams to maintain the site in good order and prepare it, as required, for school activities.
With its origins in the 13th Century, the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe, was granted a Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth I in 1562. Much has changed since, but RGS continues to enjoy a reputation as one of the leading state selective schools in the country having been consistently rated ‘outstanding’.
We have high academic standards, excellent examination results and consistently feature as one of the top 60 state schools in England. Almost all students progress to university with 15–20 attending Oxford or Cambridge each academic year. We offer a huge range of co-curricular experiences, the extent of which is, I believe, unparalleled in the state sector.
Our innovative teachers deliver a high-quality classroom experience underpinned by our RGS Ethos of Learning. Exceptional pastoral care ensures that, in a large school, every boy is known as an individual.
We encourage all Wycombiensians to be self-confident, positive, healthy and enquiring young men who acquire the qualities of tolerance and respectfulness embodied through a modesty of manner.
Most of our students are day boys. Boarding, however, has a unique capacity to shape the lives of young people and RGS offers this provision to 70 boys as one of 40 state boarding schools. Boarding plays a substantial role within the life of the School.
To see the full range of activities undertaken at the school, we would encourage you to visit our website (www.rgshw.com).
