Job Description: 

Energetic and enthusiastic house parent(s) sought for an excellent opportunity to run a family-like boarding house.

Over the past eight years we have experienced growing demand for international boarding provision and we have progressively extended our boarding house accordingly. We now have around 40 pupils in our boarding house and 10 in homestay.

You will be in charge of the day-to-day running and management of our boarding house and you will be supported by two cooks and a cleaner. You will have responsibility for the monitoring, welfare and motivation of our international students and implementing boarding house policies and procedures.  

The ideal applicant will have experience of managing young students in a residential environment. Flexibility to respond to the unexpected, a sense of humour and enthusiasm are essential, as is the ability to engender respect from staff and students. Good organisational skills and a genuine interest in the welfare of young people are essential. The post includes accommodation, whilst working and when off duty, full board and utilities. 

You report directly to the Principal.

Applicants should submit a covering letter and a full CV  to by 30 June 2019.
