Job Description

Required from January 2023


Head of Year (Pastoral)


Roedean is an extraordinary school, sitting in the South Downs, overlooking the English Channel, however it is not just the location, but the strong academic focus with a genuine belief in the importance of creativity and an all-round education that makes Roedean unique.


We are seeking a remarkable and visionary person to join our team. You will be experienced and well qualified, but most importantly, you will have the girls’ aspirations and welfare at the heart of your vision. We are seeking someone who values kindness and generosity, who can build transformational relationships and who wants to make a difference to every individual, as an individual.


While the role would suit a current Head of Year we are keen to attract applicants whose experience will not, as yet, cover all aspects of the role. Our experienced Senior Leadership Team will provide the training and 1-1 mentoring to enable you to excel in the role.  The position would also suit someone keen to develop the depth of experience to prepare themselves for a pastoral leadership role within the next 1-2 years.  This position would suit someone with a pastoral background which may include SEND experience.


Roedean is at a very exciting time in its development, with innovation, growth and the development of first-class facilities at the heart of its plans. We welcome your interest in being part of our continuing journey.


Roedean is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful applicants.
