Job Description


An independent 11-18 girls’ day and boarding school in Brighton

Required from January 2024

Full Time Resident Deputy Housemistress/Housemaster

Roedean is an extraordinary school, sitting within the South Downs National Park and overlooking the English Channel. It is not just the location, but our reputation for excellence in pastoral care and boarding provision, our strong academic focus, and our genuine belief in the importance of creativity and an all-round education, that makes Roedean unique.

We are seeking to appoint a highly skilled Deputy Housemistress/Housemaster with the enthusiasm, experience and compassion to relate to and support the pupils in their House.

We are looking for someone who is kind and dedicated to ensuring that every pupil succeeds and gets the support and encouragement they need, as well as having the insight and communication skills to build strong relationships across the school including parents and guardians. Applications from qualified teachers or those planning a career in teaching are particularly welcome.

While the role would suit a current Assistant or Deputy Housemistress/Housemaster, we are keen to attract applicants whose experience will not, as yet, cover all aspects of the role. We will provide the training and 1-1 mentoring to support the development of the skills needed.

We welcome your interest in being part of our journey at a time of continued development, and with the recent arrival of Niamh Green as Head.

Roedean is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful applicants will undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post including checks with past employers and with the DBS.

Please download an application pack from our website ( or contact Louisa Butler via Please note we do not accept CVs.

Closing date: 9am, 25 September 2023. Due to the need to appoint quickly we reserve the right to interview and appoint at any stage of the process. Registered Charity No. 307063
