The main function of this post is to be an adult presence in the House and to be responsible for the safeguarding, welfare and security of pupils by assisting the Housemaster/Housemistress (HoM) and their team in the supervision of the health and welfare of the pupils and their ‘House’.

Built in the 1860s, School House is the oldest house at Clifton College. Today, it is a family-run house with an emphasis on learning responsibility and independence under careful supervision. There is a very strong house spirit and sense of loyalty, and we are committed to a well-rounded approach to school life, whether in sport, drama, music, societies or activities.

Each week, after prep in the evening, the House runs sporting activities for the boys, including fives, indoor football, swimming, and water polo. In addition, School House is the only house to run its own internal debating competition for the younger boys, an event which is often the first occasion the boys have to speak in public. In recent years, the House has also been paintballing, go-karting, bowling, leadership training, Canadian canoeing, and camping in Wales.

We are happy to consider a job share for this role.
