Deputy Head Master/Mistress – Head of Boarding

Holyport College is a unique and exciting school. Opened in 2014, Holyport College is a Co-Educational state funded day/boarding school that has quickly established itself as an ambitious and dynamic place to work. Popular with parents, we are one of the most over-subscribed schools in our area.

Inspected in May 2017, this is what Ofsted had to say about our ‘outstanding’ school:

“The school is a harmonious community where all groups coexist and cooperate together particularly well”

“Pupils are thoughtful, respectful and friendly”

“Behaviour is impeccable”

“The school’s pastoral system is a real strength”

Holyport College now seeks applications for the post of Deputy Head Master, Head of Boarding from 1 January 2021 or earlier. This is a new post with overall responsibility for Boarding and Behaviour at the College and, first and foremost, we are seeking someone with the warmth, empathy and leadership ability to lead our boarding community in the next stages of its development. The successful candidate will be fully committed to the wellbeing, safety, education and opportunities of our boarders; we are seeking someone who is detail oriented but can see the bigger picture and with extensive boarding experience in either the state or independent sectors at Housemaster level or above. The College’s boarding community is co-educational and extremely diverse and applications are particularly welcomed from suitable candidates whose backgrounds and experiences have equipped them to lead this community.

It is a genuine occupational requirement of the post that the post-holder is resident at the College during term time and, as such, a recently refurbished, four bedroom house is available for the successful applicant.
