Gap Years at Gresham’s
Each year we welcome approximately six Gap Year Assistants to Gresham’s Prep and Pre-Prep Schools. We aim to help these students gain vital career skills and leadership experience, plus the opportunity for a rewarding and fun year abroad in a close-knit and friendly community.
Duties may include working in the school office, coaching sport, assisting in PE lessons, helping in boarding houses, working as a classroom assistant, and taking part in school trips.
We are ideally located in the lively market town of Holt, which offers all necessary amenities. Daily buses operate between Holt and Norwich, and coach services are available to all major London airports from Norwich. Rail links to Norwich, London and the rest of the country are available at nearby Sheringham, which is a short taxi journey from Holt.
Coming to Gresham’s will suit any young person who is prepared to throw themselves into our busy school community with commitment and enthusiasm. Students must be flexible and keen for challenge, with the ability to act as a leader and work effectively with people of all ages. Some expertise or qualifications in coaching sport would be a particular asset.
Please be advised all Gap Year opportunities Starting January 2024 have now been filled.
Working at Gresham’s
We take great pride in our reputation and recognise that this is built on the commitment and skills of our staff. The success of the School and the well-being of staff and its pupils depends very largely on co-operation, trust and respect between us.
There is something very special about living in north Norfolk with its unique coastline and countryside. Sandy beaches, salt marshes and spectacular wildlife with panoramic skies combine to make north Norfolk a special place to live and work. Gresham’s is situated within four miles of the beautiful north Norfolk coast. If you hanker for the city, the Fine City of Norwich is only 45 minutes drive away with its museums, art galleries, restaurants and shops to tempt every taste.
