A leading independent day school is looking for a Registered Nurse (Adult or Children’s) to join the team as a School Nurse and provide excellent nursing care to pupils as they grow and thrive – both in their academics and as individuals.

Highly praised by the Independent Schools Inspectorate for the support given to its pupils in their academic and wider personal endeavours, the school takes an inclusive and inspirational approach to education – each pupil is given the individual encouragement they need to explore beyond the standard, take an active role in building a socially and culturally harmonious community, and grow into lifelong learners and leaders.

Each School Nurse role is a permanent, term-term only (0.8 FTE) position. Actual salary will be determined on a pro-rata basis.
