Houseparent of Boyne House (Boys’ Boarding)

Date Posted: Friday 11 February 2022

Vacancy Type: Full-Time

Closing date for application: 01/03/2022

 As a recent result of two different Cheltenham College House Parents gaining promotion to prestigious Deputy Headships, The Head invites applications for the post of Houseparent of Boyne (HsM), starting in September 2022

The HsM of Boyne House has the vital role of leading the development of the pastoral, academic, co-curricular and general wellbeing of the boys in their care.

The Role

Cheltenham College is an inspiring place to live and work and we are looking for someone to encourage and challenge the boys of Boyne House to achieve their very best.

We view education as something that happens in all areas of school life, not just in the classroom, therefore the HsM of Boyne House needs to be able to help each individual boy in their care make the best of every opportunity afforded him. The HsM plays a vital role in ensuring that the boys who leave the house are confident, mature, civilised young people who can go on to be successful in their lives.

We have an excellent team of HsMs who work closely together, meeting regularly to share good practice as well as to iron out any difficulties. Therefore, it is crucial that the new HsM is a team player who is willing to work collaboratively with others and share College’s ethos.

The successful candidate would need to be someone who can get the very best from their team of tutors, matrons and domestic staff.
