Job summary

Our school is ‘Good’ (Ofsted 2018), being one of the most popular and successful 11-16 mixed comprehensive schools in the Preston Park area of Brighton, consistently over-subscribed.
Our curriculum is broad and balanced and offers many exciting opportunities for all students, both in school and out. There are tremendous extra-curricular opportunities at Dorothy Stringer through sport, performing arts, the Junior Leadership Team, and on-going links with our partner schools in Africa, the Duke of Edinburgh award, as well as a number of other trips. In short, we believe there is something for everyone at the school.

An opportunity has come to work with our fantastic students as a Pastoral Manager. Working as a key member of the pastoral team, you will manage the behaviour of pupils and work effectively with other staff, families and carers to overcome behavioural obstacles to learning.

If you would like to work closely with young people and parents in the school context then this post would be for you. We are seeking someone who is experienced, well organised and self-confident, with good communication skills.
The successful candidate would benefit from a high level of support.

About Dorothy Stringer School

Dorothy Stringer is a vibrant, stimulating and happy community where it is safe to learn and where everyone can excel both inside and outside the classroom. We are ambitious for our students’ progress and attainment and strive to create an environment that promotes a keen enjoyment of learning.

Today’s students face a world that is changing at an ever-increasing pace and we have a duty to prepare them for their adult lives. We value and promote self-discipline, creativity, independence, self-confidence and the ability to work collaboratively with others.

We work to ensure that all our students achieve their full academic potential. However, we believe that school is not just about academic success: we want our students to thrive and to develop holistically. We are immensely proud of the wide range of opportunities we offer outside the classroom in sport, performance, creativity and service.

We excel at nurturing our students in a safe and happy environment and believe that schools need to care for the emotional wellbeing of their students and understand their personal needs. We have created an atmosphere where students can be themselves and they are known and supported as individuals. Students take pride in our school and in their own achievement as well as in the achievement of others.

We are a community which is based on clear moral values and where there is a sense of belonging and identity. We work hard to develop partnerships with parents and carers and to secure their interest, support and commitment. We aim to be a community to which everyone wants to belong and where all feel respected and valued.
