The House Matron (HM) is responsible for the day-to-day running of the boarding house, and for the monitoring, well-being and motivation of all students.
The House Matron arrives at summer school the day before students in order to familiarise herself with the facilities and prepare for the beginning of the course. The House Matron role is a senior role (middle management) and does require hard work and commitment to the job; for the right candidate we feel the role would be extremely rewarding and that the package we offer is generous. Applicants should have experience of managing children in a residential environment; flexibility to respond to the unexpected, a sense of humour and enthusiasm are important, as is the ability to command respect from staff and students.
In addition, as a mother figure in the house, the hours of work may be anti-social if children need comforting or assisting in the night and as the senior member of staff in the house it is sometimes necessary to deal with such issues, even if you are not specifically on the rota to do so. At LMFL we look to retain the staff that we train and work with and we also try to promote from within, meaning that ideally we would like a candidate who may be able to see this position being an annual role.
