Start date: September 2018

Job Reference No: 17-18020

Taunton School is over 170 years old and is an Independent School for approximately 1000 boys and girls aged 0-18 years, with circa 300 boarders. We aim to challenge, inspire and nurture young people to succeed in a global community.   

The role of Chaplain of Taunton School is a Headmaster and Governors’ appointment and should be held by an ordained or accredited man or woman of a member church of Churches Together in England or its equivalent national body with Churches Together in Britain and Ireland.   

The Chaplain reflects multi faith spirituality in the community and is pastor and friend to all members of the School community: pupils, teachers and the large number of support staff (bursarial, grounds, maintenance and secretarial) who make up the School community.

Although the School has a Christian ethos, and Chapel attendance is regarded as one of the essential components of community life, the Chaplain should ensure that the spiritual needs of people belonging to other faith communities are considered.  It is important for the Chaplain to be well known and prominent about the campus.  Involvement in all aspects of school life provide the Chaplain with countless opportunities to get to know the many members of the community.    

Our School ethos is of a shared responsibility and positive contribution from all to the life and work of this busy six-day-a-week boarding and day community. This is what makes Taunton School such a thriving, energetic and well-rounded Independent School. We offer a competitive package and an outstanding environment in which to work.  

Benefits: 

  • Meals provided when the dining room is open; 
  • Free parking on site; 
  • Discounted membership of the Taunton School Sports Club; 
  • Contributory Health Scheme; and 
  • Automatic enrolment in the School Pension Scheme (should you meet the eligibility criteria).

Please complete and submit a Taunton School application form and equal opportunities monitoring form accompanied with a covering letter to tsrecruit@tauntonschool.co.uk. Alternatively, applications can be posted to the HR Department at the main School address. Please note CVs alone will not be accepted.   

Closing date for receipt of applications is 10am Wednesday 24th January 2018
