This is an exciting opportunity to work with our Pastoral team and Heads of House in supporting students in various contexts. The role will be diverse and involve a range of daily responsibilities, leading to long term work with some of our students and families who will value your support.

Working hours are 8.50am to 3.20pm, five days per week, with 3/4 hour for lunch, term time plus inset days.
