Working with the chaplain, Rev Michael Bennett, the associate chaplain will have a particular focus on ministering to female day and boarding students. The successful applicant will lead chapel and boarding services, teach religious education classes, serve in the charity engagement programme, assist in pastoral care activities, organise and run weekly prayer meetings, and support the overall direction of the school.
