Residential Graduate Assistant

Fixed term contract: September 2019 – July 2020

Potential for contract extension for a further year

Colchester Royal Grammar School is looking to appoint a resident Graduate Assistant to join our boarding team. The boarding at CRGS is for Sixth Form students only and provides a warm family atmosphere for a small and culturally diverse community of very bright students.  Ofsted rated our boarding provision as outstanding in all respects when they inspected in November 2016.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone to join the boarding team and gain experience in an educational setting by contributing to all aspects of school life. The position is suitable for a wide range of applicants, but offers an outstanding opportunity for those considering a future career in education, boarding or sports. Enthusiasm, flexibility and the ability to work as part of a team are all essential. The successful candidate will be expected to work primarily in boarding, but also to contribute to the day-side of school life as part of their duties. We are particularly interested in candidates who are able to support the students’ academic studies and/or have an interest in one of the following areas:

  • Sports
  • School trips, productions and events

Accommodation is provided along with all meals taken in school during term-time.

Applications must be received by midday on the closing date, please send completed application forms to
