We are looking to appoint a full-time, term time only School Nurse responsible for leading the provision of the healthcare needs of our boarding and day pupils. The successful candidate must be a registered nurse.

St George’s is an independent boarding and day school with approximately 270 pupils aged from 11-18 years about 45% of whom are boarders (both full and tailored) and with a Sixth Form of approximately 80 pupils. The school operates as an Educational Trust administered by a Board of Governors, is a member of the Girls’ Schools Association (GSA), Boarding Schools Association (BSA), and is ISC accredited.

We are a welcoming school with a warm sense of community and visitors often comment on the perceptible supportive and cheerful atmosphere. We believe that a happy and successful school is one where all pupils have the opportunities to develop their strengths. The richness of opportunities within and outside the classroom are fundamental elements of the St George’s experience and this allows the girls to foster the confidence, independence and academic curiosity that lead to success. Our academic results are impressive, with the ‘value-added’ in public examinations a real strength. We understand how girls learn effectively and we regularly add at least one grade higher at GCSE and A Level than baseline testing would suggest.

Over the past two years at GCSE, St George’s has been placed in the top 5 to 10% of schools nationally for value added.

We are seeking to appoint a School Nurse responsible for leading the provision of the Healthcare needs of our boarding and day pupils.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic, experienced and flexible individual to join a dedicated, friendly and professional School. The successful candidate must be a registered nurse.
