Woldingham has 6 boarding houses; Marden is home to our youngest boarders in Years 7 and 8, with Main House being home to our boarders in Years 9, 10 and 11 with three distinct boarding areas within the building. Berwick and Shanley house our Lower and Upper Sixth respectively and are stand-alone buildings; Shanley has en-suite facilities. All boarders in Year 10 and up have single study bedrooms whilst younger students are accommodated in dorms. All year groups are a mixture of full, weekly and flexi boarders. The School is organised horizontally in Year groups with each year team consisting of a Head of Year, Housemistress and Assistant Housemistress.

The Head of Year oversees the academic and pastoral progress of all students, both Day girls and Boarders, with the Housemistress being primarily responsible for the Boarders within the Year group. They are supported by an Assistant Housemistress who reports directly to them. The House team is assisted by Residential Tutors on evenings and weekends. It is important for the House Staff to ensure they are familiar with Day and Boarders alike; flexi boarding is a popular initiative, and many Day girls chose to board one or two nights a week each term, meaning they fall within the care of the boarding house.

Once completed, return your completed application and cover letter to hr@woldinghamschool.co.uk with a supporting letter. This is an open campaign, and so we would welcome early applications. This role will close when a suitable candidate has been appointed.
