Job Description

Monkton is seeking to appoint dedicated and professional bank nurses to join our small, hardworking and friendly medical centre team working across the whole school. As part of the bank staff team you will be required to support the medical centre during busy periods, and to cover for staff absences such as holidays and sickness. We are also looking for night shift cover so please indicate on your application form if you are open to this (salary to be discussed on enquiry).

The aim of the role is to support pupils’ health and wellbeing so that they can fully participate in school life and provide health care to members of the school community. In both areas, the medical centre team strives to develop and maintain positive and mutually supportive relationships with the wider school community, particularly those at the core of our exceptional pastoral care.

Our nurses work on a shift basis across both sites and therefore a flexible approach to this is essential.

Due to the nature of the role, and in keeping with the nature of an Independent Boarding School, hours of work can include evenings and weekends.


Monkton Combe School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post including checks with past employers and Disclosure and Barring Service.
