Boarding Families

Thetford Grammar School began admitting international pupils in September 2018. We are proud to say that since then our programme has grown to see the re-introduction of boarding after a 70-year break. As such we are now looking to recruit outstanding local people to join our team as Boarding Families. 

We seek caring individuals, couples or families, to welcome international pupils into their home. Willing and able to provide a supportive environment for these pupils to live, relax and study in outside of school hours, Boarding Families are an integral part of school life at TGS providing a home-away-from home for our bright, polite and engaging international pupils. 

As well as being part of the school's boarding network and gaining experience of working with young people, Boarding Families are given regular safeguarding training and open access to a wide range of CPD-certified courses covering more than 40 education-related areas. Boarding Families are provided with ongoing support and opportunities to meet and discuss developments with the school's senior leadership team.

In addition to generous remuneration for the care provided, Boarding Families can benefit from cultural exchanges and the chance to establish lasting relationships with parents and pupils from outside of the UK.

For further information, please contact Fliss Brewer on 01842 752840 or fbr@thetgram.norfolk.sch.uk

 

Thetford Grammar 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 the Disclosure and Barring Service.
