Assistant Housemaster / Housemistress

Milton Abbey needs two enthusiastic and caring residential Assistant Housemasters or Housemistresses, who have a deep commitment to pastoral care and a desire to be part of a team overseeing transformational education of young people, in and beyond the classroom.

The successful applicants will ideally have boarding experience and will relish the opportunities and challenges of being involved in a boarding house in a 24/7, full boarding school environment. An excellent record as a classroom practitioner is required, although the focus of the role is pastoral. 

Working in partnership with children’s families, this role provides extraordinary opportunities to shape the lives of the young people in our care. House staff work as part of a dynamic and highly supportive team, line managed by their Housemaster or Housemistress and the Deputy Head (Pastoral). 

We offer a genuinely different learning experience to our students, with the widest range of vocational courses in the independent sector, and a focus on the development of the whole person, not just examination results. More than half of our students have identified learning challenges and we promote opportunities for them to ‘learn differently’ and successfully here.

Assistant Housemasters and Housemistresses teach a reduced timetable, allowing them to help ensure their pupils’ holistic needs are met. Assistant Housemasters and Housemistresses play an important role at the heart of the school community, making an outstanding contribution to the life of Milton Abbey School.
