Your application should include a covering letter. You may include a CV as well as, but not instead of, an application form if you feel it will help your application. If you are shortlisted, we will contact you by email so please ensure you include a current email address. Successful applicants for all posts will require DBS enhanced disclosure. The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.



Hours: evenings and weekends, in term time only, amounting to approximately 33 hours per week (the exact sessions and timings will be subject to discussion with the successful candidate) and 9.00am to 4.00 on three days (set dates) per annum for staff training.

Salary: £9,490pa, based on a full time equivalent of £14,625

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our friendly, home-from-home boarding community at HOHS.  You will need to enjoy working with young people and be willing to share your own interests and enthusiasms with them. This is a rewarding role making a valuable contribution to the vibrant extra-curricular life of our boarding pupils.  Ideally you will have  a first-aid qualification or be willing to undertake training; a driving licence and a willingness to drive a school minibus is also a distinct advantage but not essential.

Situated in a village close to Norwich, the school has excellent resources, including well-equipped purpose-built classrooms, a full size sports hall, heated indoor swimming pool and sixteen acres of attractive, rural grounds including a sports field, orchard and woods.  Boarders are housed in our historic main building and in purpose-built sixth form accommodation.
