Deputy Headmaster, St Paul's Collegiate, closes - 12 November 2018

DEPUTY HEADMASTER – PASTORAL BOARDING

St Paul’s Collegiate School is a leading Anglican independent school situated in Hamilton, New Zealand that has a commitment to providing education of the highest quality for its 740 students.

Our school is a well-resourced day and boarding school with a reputation for high academic achievement. We are boys only in Years 9 & 10 and co-educational in Years 11, 12 & 13. The school has a national profile for innovation, is a leader in Agribusiness education and operates an outdoor experience for its Year 10 students for six months at its Tihoi Venture Campus on the western side of Lake Taupo.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated, energetic and well-organised person to join our senior leadership team. We are seeking a student-focussed individual who is passionate about the wellbeing of young people. This unique and varied role requires outstanding skills in pastoral care, as well as exceptional leadership and communication skills. 

The Deputy Headmaster – Pastoral Boarding will have oversight of our extensive pastoral care systems and direct responsibility for the leadership and management of boarding staff and students (330 students over four houses). Reporting to the Headmaster, you will be supported in your role by the Boarding Administrator and a team of four Housemasters (as well as Deputies, Assistants, Tutors and Matrons). 

To succeed in this role, ideally you will have previous boarding experience, a proven record of educational leadership, and be a motivated and qualified teacher (as you will also have approximately 10 hours of teaching each week). You will live in on-site accommodation, because part of your role will include mentoring and guiding the Housemaster team and immersing yourself in the boarding lifestyle. 

This is an exciting opportunity for an inspirational leader to help take our high performing school to an even higher level.  You will play a pivotal and influential role at St Paul’s, and in turn, there will be significant opportunity for personal and professional growth.  

A competitive remuneration package is on offer for the successful candidate, and support with relocation (if required). You and your family will be welcomed into our supportive community and enjoy the benefits of working at a high-profile school. This position will commence in Term 2, 2019 (or earlier by negotiation).
