GAP Year

Gap Year Vacancies

Looking for a rewarding way to spend your Gap Year before continuing with your studies? Perhaps a year at Port Regis may be the answer….

THE GAP YEAR STUDENTS

The bustling Common Room is augmented each year by 4-5 male and 8-9 female Gap Year students from the Southern Hemisphere, who join in January.  We also have a Music GAP Assistant, who is also likely to come from south of the Equator! In addition we have a French Assistant. The social life at school is enhanced by the presence of the GAPs and a number of young Sports Hall staff.

The Gap Years are assigned to a boarding house and occasionally to a department where the GAP may have particular interests or strengths, such as IT, Technology (Electronics, CAD/CAM and simple robotics), Art and Design, or Woodwork, and he/she assists during lesson time and may do some teaching. All Gaps help with games in the afternoons (including matches on Wednesdays and Saturdays) and with hobbies supervision in the evenings. All GAPS are assigned to boarding houses where they work on certain evenings, and often provide overnight cover.  All GAPs are involved on weekend activities. Weekend activities are a major part of the GAP role (and are great fun).

When not involved in boarding duties, the local pub/restaurant close to the school is a popular haunt of the Port Regis Gaps and  members of staff. There is a full and varied weekend activity programme which is organised largely by the Gaps in conjunction with the member of staff who co-ordinates their timetables. There is, of course, free time during the week and at weekends, but the Gaps are expected to work hard and make a full commitment to the well-being and happiness of the children who think of the Gaps rather as older brothers and sisters.

Accommodation is provided in comfortable and well furbished single rooms for all GAPS, either within the Boarding House or elsewhere on the School grounds with access to a welcoming sitting room. The job is great fun and hugely rewarding. This could be the perfect way to spend your Gap Year.

BOARDING HOUSES

Each Gap is assigned to a boarding house. We have a senior boys' house, Prichard Hall, a senior girls' house, Grosvenor Hall, and three houses within the Mansion (called Stalbridge, Huxley and Talbot) where the younger children sleep. Each house has Houseparents.  The Head of Baording, her assistant and the Senior Master have overall charge and care of the Gaps.

The duties include all aspects of caring for the children: supervising washing, sorting clean clothes, mending, finding lost clothing and giving cuddles. There is approximately 2 hours off each day, and depending on whether the GAP is on call overnight during the week; either a half day or whole day off per week and alternate weekends (excluding the beginning and end of term). The School day starts at 8.15 am and each GAP has an individual time table to work with so as to reduce any confusion!

'Life as a Gap at PR' - by Will (2008)

When I arrived at Port Regis it was a lot to take in. I was on the other side of the world, it was 2 degrees and I knew that I would be spending the whole year here along with these other 11 new gappies who I was yet to meet. But somehow it all turned out fine as we were all introduced and before long were throwing around the banter and started bonding that would form some of the best friendships in my life to date.

As a gap, I was based in the IT department which, to be fair, was not me at all, but after a week of the routine I quickly slotted into the day-to-day running of things. I also did a lot of cover, substituting in lessons for absent staff, which I really enjoyed as it gave me a chance to get to know more kids around the school.

I worked in 'Stalbridge' house, which is the littlest kids, and man have they got some serious energy! I would work in there two nights a week and would always take part in the royal rumbles, dorm cricket and particularly hot chocolate nights.

The staff at the school and the atmosphere they created for me was one of the hardest things to leave behind. Within weeks you began to know most of the staff and would be involved with them in the day to day running of the school; Whether it’s coaching sport or playing them in the Wednesday night Staff vs Gaps 6 a side football derby!

My Gap year at Port Regis, without a doubt, was the best year of my life so far and I would recommend it in a second to anyone.
