Our client is a leading independent Catholic day and boarding school for girls. It is one of the most successful non-selective schools in the UK and offers a warm and nurturing educational environment alongside a rigorous and exciting curriculum.  There are over 400 children, from Pre-Prep to Sixth Form and over 70 girls board on a weekly or termly basis and many more take advantage of their occasional boarding option .
They wish to appoint a Housemistress to start in April 2024. This post represents a challenging yet highly rewarding opportunity to make a lasting contribution to the personal development of their girls and to work as part of a supportive team.  Candidates will almost certainly have relevant experience of serving as a Residential Assistant and will have a deep understanding of, and commitment to, pastoral care. Candidates will hold BSA qualifications or be willing to undertake them during their first two years in post.
Single accommodation, with private bathroom, will be provided within the Boarding House. Accommodation for the period and food during term time are provided free of charge, should you require accommodation outside of term time, please make this clear in your application. The post requires a full commitment during term time when the boarders are at school but there are substantial holidays at Christmas and Easter as well as a half term week in each term, with a break of two weeks in the Michaelmas Term. There is also some time off every working day. Duties will include assisting with wake ups and bedtimes, assisting with daytime break and lunch duties, organising and running activities and attending outings. The role will be term-time which equates to 37 working weeks per academic year.
