New Hall School requires, from 1 September 2019 or January 2020, a teaching or non-teaching Housemistress

Competitive salary, excellent benefits & CPD

This is an exciting professional opportunity to take up a key leadership and management role in the largest Catholic boarding & day school in the UK.  The Housemistress will have overall pastoral responsibility for the well-being of full and weekly boarding girls in Years 11-13.  The Housemistress will be expected to give outstanding leadership to the House team. The Housemistress is expected to understand and be prepared to commit to the Catholic ethos of the School and the post would particularly suit Catholic candidates who are keen
to make a significant contribution to the Catholic life of the School.

New Hall has an exciting development and expansion plan that makes investment in boarding a priority.  The School operates a distinctive and innovative diamond model educational structure, with a mixture of single-sex and co-educational teaching.  Public examination results at GCSE and A Level are excellent.  The School was assessed as outstanding in its inspections in 2014 (boarding, ISI), 2016 (whole school Educational Quality and Focussed Compliance, ISI); and 2018 (Denominational, Diocese of Brentwood).

The successful candidate will have at least 2 years’ relevant experience in a boarding school, and have obtained, or be willing to study for, a BSA qualification.  She will have excellent inter-personal skills and the ability to relate to girls in Years 11-13, supporting them in their GCSE and A Level studies and applications for higher education, apprenticeships and careers. This is a residential post and excellent accommodation is provided in a flat attached to the boarding House.  The post is available to teaching or non-teaching applicants; teachers must
have a strong track record of success in teaching up to A Level or equivalent.  It is a genuine occupational requirement that the post-holder be female for reasons of privacy and decency. The post holder will be required to supervise the girls’ boarding house whilst on duty.
