About the Head of Boys’ Boarding role
Reporting to the head of boarding/pastoral care and executive principal, the successful applicant will ideally join the school from August 2020.
Boarding is a very important aspect of the school and an integral part of the educational program. Five-day boarding is provided for students aged 12 to 18 across Grades 7 to 12. The school currently has more than 300 boarders (girls and boys) with significant capacity to develop further (up to 800 boarders). The Head of Boys’ Boarding will coordinate the duties of teachers and boarding staff, and liaise with pastoral leaders. A vertical house system operates across the school. In developing a high-quality boarding provision, the successful applicant will need to ensure effective communication among boarding and pastoral staff, and build close links between the boarding provision and the families it serves. The role operates on a reduced teaching timetable to allow sufficient time for boarding responsibilities.
This exciting and challenging role commands a highly competitive salary and benefits package, including: high-quality housing, flights for employee and dependents, and medical insurance for employee and dependents. Full tuition support will be provided for any successful applicant with school-age children. The position will be offered on an initial three-year contract term with annual renewal thereafter.
Applications are invited from candidates with:
- Excellent experience in boys’ boarding either within a management role or with the necessary skills and knowledge to take the next step
- The ability to play a lead role in developing a boarding program of the highest quality
- The ability to work collaboratively and contribute to the development of an outstanding school.
