Situated in the picturesque town of Uppingham in Rutland, Our client's School is a leading co-educational boarding school accommodating over 800 pupils and employing more than 600 staff.
This is a great opportunity to join one of the leading independent schools in the UK as they continue to invest in its matron provision across its boarding houses.
House Matrons play a pivotal role within the school, and they are seeking experienced pastoral professionals to work alongside their boarding house teams to deliver excellent care to pupils aged 13-18, ensuring they settle into school and house routines, feel happy and content and have their welfare needs met.
The boarding houses are central to life at the School and matrons play a crucial role within these. An Uppingham house is very much an extended home. Each boarding house aims to represent a full spectrum of the personalities, characters and talent found across the school. A matron seeks to bring out the best in each pupil and ensure that they are treated as an individual within the boarding house. 
The role also requires confidence with IT-based admin and strong communication skills in order to successfully deliver pastoral care to our pupils.
If you enjoy working as part of a team and can combine efficiency with friendliness and a genuine care for the welfare of pupils, we would be delighted to hear from you. Experience in a care-based industry and/or working with young people is desirable.
