Our boarding staff must enjoy being with young people as much as possible. It takes enthusiasm, patience and energy to sustain the full life of a boarding school with its considerable term time demands. The responsibility of caring for pupils is significant but rewarding and this must be undertaken sensitively and professionally to the same degree as a prudent parent, so that the safety and security of all pupils’ needs are met. We expect all staff to maintain the highest standards of professional, personal and ethical conduct and to be excellent role models.
The hours of duty will involve a balance of boarding commitments, extracurricular events and general assistance in the effective running of the school. The weekly work hours will be 40 hours per week on average during one school year (excluding holidays). There will be many opportunities to gain valuable experience in most areas of boarding school life. This experience will serve as a fantastic gateway into pastoral care, education or the performing arts. GBAs will also be allotted academic and/or vocational department time during the school day but the majority of time will be spent with pastoral duties. Applicants may also find opportunities for other duties at the school, which would be supplementary to their basic rate of pay.
Accommodation and meals will be provided during term time. We will be shortlisting/interviewing on an ongoing basis and may appoint before the closing date, so please submit your application as soon as possible.
