  • Resident Houseparents

    We have two co-educational boarding houses, with places for around 80 boarders in total. We are looking for two residential Boarding Houseparents for our smaller house, School House, starting in April 2017. You will be responsible for the smooth running of the house, and in particular for ensuring the good behaviour, safety and welfare of the students overnight. You will normally be on duty overnight, plus one evening each every week, Monday to Thursday, and alternate term-time weekends. You will liaise with a range of people including parents, other staff and professionals external to the College. You should have empathy with the needs of young people, a confident manner and be well organised.

    Due to the nature of the accommodation provided, we are ideally seeking a couple who will apply together, share the responsibilities and jointly occupy the flat in School House. However, we would also welcome applications from individuals and we will try to make alternative arrangements.

    The salary for the two post holders is in the range 12,764 to 13,842 per annum (under review) which is normally shared 50% per person, plus year round accommodation and other benefits.

    Prior to application, potential candidates are advised to contact Julia West, Head of Boarding, for further information. Please email giving a contact telephone number and an indication of when it would be convenient for her to call you.

    Shortlisted candidates will be invited to eat with boarders and boarding staff and view the boarding house on the evening of Tuesday 7 February. Interviews will be held on Wednesday 8 February 2017.

    Applications to be received before 12:00 on Monday 30 January 2017.
