Curiosity and inquiry are at the heart of a vibrant learning culture and at Framlingham College we believe that every child should experience the joy that is to be found in learning. A Framlingham College education aims to nurture essential skills and habits – adaptability, teamwork and good decision-making for example – by weaving them into the curriculum.

The House plays a central role in the life of pupils at the Senior School where each pupil feels that their contribution to that community is both recognised and valued. The start date would ideally be January 2024 but we will consider applications for April 2024 start also.

The HM will teach a reduced timetable. We will offer you extensive ongoing CPD opportunities and a highly supportive working environment as well as a range of other staff benefits.

Previous experience gained within a boarding environment, preferably in a residential role is essential, as is a willingness to make a full contribution to life in this busy boarding school.

We welcome all applications from independent thinkers, creative minds and inspirational teachers and very much look forward to receiving your application.
