Job Description


Required from:

September 2023 to July 2024 and

January 2024 to December 2024



Bilton Grange is proud to support school leavers in gaining valuable life experiences during their break from studying; for some it is asking (or answering!) the question of whether they might want to work in education in the future (as it did for the present Headmaster of Bilton Grange), for others it is about making the step away from being a school pupil. Our Gap Assistants are selected following an application process. After being short listed, applicants will be interviewed either online or in person. On occasion, a second interview may be held.


During term time, the Gap Assistants support the everyday running of the school and follow a very busy timetable assisting teachers in class (across the age spectrum of the school), on the games field, in the swimming pool, in the boarding houses and supervising children at break times, in lunch queues and at other informal times. Where successful candidates have particular specialist skills and experience, be it in music, sport, drama, art, equestrianism or origami (and everything in between) we will do our best to harness that expertise.


We are a seven-day-a-week boarding school and successful candidates must be prepared to throw themselves wholeheartedly into our community. As well as invaluable experience in the world of work, our Gap Assistants are also qualified, at the school’s expense, as pool lifeguards.


The application window is now open and further information and an application pack are available on the school website Vacancies | Independent Prep School, Rugby | Bilton Grange


The closing date for applications is 9am on Monday 13th March 2023, although early application is recommended as applications will be considered as they are received.


Bilton Grange School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure & Barring Service.
