Resident Graduate Assistants

Are you an enthusiastic and caring individual, seeking an exciting challenge to work within a dynamic team at one of the UK’s leading boarding Prep Schools? We are seeking outstanding Graduates to join our team of Assistant Teachers from April or September 2022.

Working as part of the Residential Staff, the successful applicants will be engaged in the classroom, on the games field and in the Junior or Senior Boarding House.

In the Senior Boarding House the Residential Assistants will work as part of a team looking after the children and ensuring their time at the school is enjoyable, safe, caring and stimulating. During the school day you will be involved in supporting children in lessons, supporting the Games provision and have the chance to become involved in many different areas of the curriculum.
