Job Description

Rochester Independent College is undergoing an exciting period of growth and opening a brand new boarding residence in September 2024. We are seeking an inspirational health care leader to develop the healthcare provision and build a team with the purpose of removing health related barriers to learning, prevention of illness, signposting and education. This is a student focused role which allows the postholder to develop strong relationships and have a significant impact on holistic development.  The medical team also has a healthcare assistant who will support the development of this team. This academic year we have also built upon our provision for mental health and you will be working alongside the counselling team.

Founded in 1984, Rochester Independent College in Kent is a day and boarding school offering a distinctive alternative to both traditional independent education and the highly selective grammar schools. RIC aims to give students an enjoyable and successful experience of schools in an international, creative and inclusive environment with small classes and high-quality teaching and pastoral care.

Classes are small. On average there are 8 students in each group with a maximum of 12. As well as a full secondary education from year 7 to sixth form, the College specialises in intensive one year A level and GCSE courses. We also have a good track record of excellent results on retake A level and GCSE courses for students aiming at competitive university courses including Medicine, Law, Veterinary Science and Dentistry.
