About Our School

Set in beautiful extensive grounds on the edge of the Kentish village of Hawkhurst, Marlborough House is a country Prep School for 3 to 13 year old's with a distinctly family feel; small enough for everyone to be known and cared for whilst still embracing the future that our children will be part of.

At Marlborough House, Valuing Self and Others is at the heart of everything we do.

About the role

We have an exciting opportunity to take on the role of being the first point of contact for our thriving Prep School. A brief job description is available, but it can only give a snapshot of the varied day that awaits the successful candidate.  Queries will fly into the front desk from all directions about any possible matter!  A calm head is therefore needed to deal with the range of this job, but although very busy it can also be immensely rewarding.

In terms of time, the role will be split roughly 80% School Secretary/20% Head’s PA, although there are certain times of term where that changes significantly.  Flexibility is probably the key attribute required, as no two days are identical and certain times of term are definitely exhausting.  The major compensation for this role is the holiday allowance of 10 or 12 weeks which allows plenty of time to take a break and recoup your energy levels.

Further details and application forms are available on our website or by calling 01580 755152, or emailing 

How to apply

Please complete the School’s application forms and return them by email to  or by post to the School in an envelope marked RECRUITMENT.

Please note that only applications which are on the School's application forms can be accepted and applications received after the closing date of 5pm on Monday 7th June 2021 will not be considered for short-listing. 

All staff at Marlborough House School have an important role to play in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All staff at the school are subject to a full DBS check.
