HOUSEMASTER POSITIONS

Pretoria Boys High School
~ Pretoria, Gauteng ~

Pretoria Boys High School is a traditional boys school located on an 85-acre campus southeast of the city centre. Established in 1901, it is one of the oldest schools in the province. With an enrolment of around 1500 pupils it is the largest boys’ school in South Africa. The school prides itself on maintaining exceptional standards and this is illustrated through our ethos of holistic education based on the fundamental pillars of a full academic, cultural and sporting programme. PBHS is a public school with additional funding generated through school fees. Three boarding houses provide accommodation for over 300 pupils.

HOUSEMASTER POSITIONS

Applications are invited for day house and boarding Housemaster positions which will be effective from 1st January 2022.

Background

PBHS is the largest boys high school in South Africa. When, in the 1990s, the school was expanded substantially beyond 1000 pupils, the number of day houses was increased (to seven) to allow the school to be divided into a number of manageable units, each of which is, in effect, a self-contained sub-division. The houses can therefore be seen as schools in miniature, each with their own hierarchy and staff who are allocated to specific roles. It is important to emphasise that this vertical division of the school means that housemasters have a central role to play in the administration and pastoral care of pupils. The success of Boys High as an educational institution is thus, to a very large extent, dependent on the effectiveness of the house system and that in turn is a product of the leadership provided by the housemasters.

The role of Housemaster at PBHS is considered to be a promotion position that encourages personal and professional development of potential leaders.

Job description

Day Housemasters are responsible for the seven day houses within the school, with approximately 175 boys within each house. They manage a staff team that comprises five tutors, a pastoral care tutor, a reserve tutor and a language advisor. Eight house prefects are also responsible to the Housemaster. The Housemasters are responsible for the pastoral care of boys in their house; the management of house participation in the inter-house events (sporting and cultural) and the issuing of academic performance reports (in which they have commented) to parents at various junctures in the year.

Boarder Senior Housemasters are responsible for approximately 115 boys in each of the three boarding houses. Their responsibilities are the same as day house housemasters, but within the context of the boarding establishment. This involves a variety of other management roles relating to the daily and weekly routines of a boarding house. The staffing complement is similar to a day house, but with the assistant boarder housemasters being resident in the houses.
A successful candidate would be expected to teach a 4/5 load and play an active role in the extra mural programme in addition to the duties described above.

Minimum requirements for applicants

Applicants must have a minimum of five years teaching experience at the time of applying. They must be SACE registered.

Additional attributes

The following would be an advantage:

  • In the case of applicants for boarding housemaster positions, previous experience in a boarding house 
  • Previous responsibility managing a facet of a school’s activities (academic or extra-mural) 
  • Proficient language ability 
  • Teaching experience in an all-boys school

Eligibility of exiting housemasters

Housemasters currently in office are eligible to re-apply for their positions, subject to the understanding that they will be part of the same shortlisting and selection process as all other applicants.

Applications for both types of positions

Applicants who believe that they could be effective in either role, may apply for both types of position. 

Remuneration package

Day Housemasters 

  • An SGB allowance based on their existing salary
  • Housing on the estate or a living-out allowance

Boarding Senior Housemasters 

  • A GDE allowance (of 12.5 % of salary) 
  • Housing 
  • A meal allowance when on duty

Applications

Applicants for these positions must send a CV of no more than four pages and a covering letter indicating your preference for the type of housemaster position. Applicants who are shortlisted for interviews will be informed within two weeks of the closing date.

The school reserves the right not to fill these positions. An application does not necessarily entitle the applicant to an interview. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted.
