Kingswood School has a vacancy for a Chaplain from 1 September 2020. This is an exciting opportunity to join a thriving independent school with 1100 students and 350 staff to lead the School’s worship and make a significant contribution to the School’s pastoral and wider life.
The School, founded by John Wesley in 1748, moved from Bristol to beautiful parkland on the northern edge of Bath in 1852 and is the world’s oldest Methodist educational institution. John Wesley set out to provide academic rigour underpinned by Christian values within a caring and supportive community. This aim remains central to the life of the School today.
The successful candidate is likely to be a Methodist minister but may be a probationer or minister of another denomination. As pastor to all students and staff, candidates must have an approach which encourages a sense of trust, respect and inclusivity.
The Chaplain is expected to be fully involved in the life of the School, including its 24/7 boarding programme. This post could be combined with an appropriate wider teaching or coaching commitment, depending on the qualifications, experience and interests of the candidate.
Further details of the School and an application pack are available from the Employment Opportunities section of our website: www.kingswood.bath.sch.uk or from the HR Department, email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01225 734350.
