Celebrated throughout the world as a centre of musical excellence, The Purcell School is the most vibrant, exciting and exhilarating place to work or study. We are a close-knit community dedicated to nurturing some of the world’s most talented young musicians and we recognize the unique privilege it is to work with these incredibly gifted students.
We are seeking a pro-active, enthusiastic and dedicated sports graduate to join our friendly team of residential staff and contribute fully to the life of this busy boarding community. The successful candidate will be able to facilitate a wide range of sporting and recreational activities, will enjoy the company of young people, will be pastorally minded and enjoy living in a close and mutually supportive community.
Sport plays an important part in the life of The Purcell School. As a school for young musicians we do not offer mainstream team sports but physical education and fitness for life are essential to the well-being of our young musicians. As a boarding school where students are often busy throughout the school day, we need to provide opportunities for them to be involved in physical exercise at times that are convenient to them, and in an environment which supports their musical ambitions.
We want our boarders to feel that they enjoy living here and strive to provide outstanding pastoral care and support. Each of our four boarding houses is supervised by at least two resident staff, with other staff involved in a non-residential capacity. The successful candidate will support Houseparent(s) with the day-to-day care of boarders, overnight cover, and will respond positively to the needs and interests of our students. He/she will play a significant part in ensuring that our young musicians are safe, happy and healthy.
