Head Master Office Assistant Jobs Vacancy at Eton College Eton Jobs Details:
Eton College, which was founded by Henry VI in 1440 for 70 scholars, has over the years become a boarding school for 1300 boys. It is the largest boarding school for boys in the United Kingdom. The school welcomes boys from all backgrounds and has 130 pupils on merit based scholarships at any one time. Around 20% receive a range of bursarial financial assistance averaging 67% fee remission and over 70 boys receive 100% support. This year the School will spend £6.5m on bursaries and scholarships. This income is not from fees paid by parents but generated from our endowment and donations received. Boys joined us this year from 114 middle and prep schools spread throughout the UK and only 10% of boys come from overseas.
To support this large population of boarding pupils we have 155 full time teachers of boys as well as 100 part-time teachers, and visiting music teachers. There are over 600 other employees including domestic staff (in the boarding houses and in the central dining hall), technicians, grounds men, administrative staff, security, cleaners and a large buildings department. The college and its immediate grounds and playing fields extend over 400 acres from the north end of Eton High Street to the M4 by Slough, bound to the east by the Thames and to the west by a railway.
