Why work at Hutchins?

Great staff

For most of us our co-workers or colleagues help make our working life rewarding and enjoyable!

At Hutchins we employ a large range of people in a wide variety of roles that all make a contribution to and have a passion for the teaching and learning of boys.

For staff, our values of respect, relationships and community are demonstrated on a daily basis and are supported by our Kindness Policy.

Work, health and safety

Employee work, health and safety is critical to all aspects of our school life. Our Work, Health and Safety Team provide systems and support to all our supervisors and staff to ensure that staff and student safety is managed pro-actively and to the highest standards possible.

Location, facilities and resources

The Hutchins School is a Kindergarten to Year 12 day and boarding school for boys located in the suburb of Sandy Bay, close to Hobart’s city centre.

Our campus is well-maintained and presented and is considered a real asset by staff and students alike. Stunning water views of the River Derwent are available from many staff offices and classrooms.

We work hard to ensure that the best resources are available to deliver teaching and learning outcomes to students throughout the School. We are particularly proud of our information and communication technology (ICT) strategy and resources.

Specialist teaching and learning areas include laboratories and technical study areas which are well-equipped. Since 1998, the School has been substantially re-built with new buildings for the Early Learning Centre, Middle School, Music School, John Bednall Centre for Learning Support, Library Learning Centre and most recently our boarding facility, Burbury House, has been renovated.

Employee benefits

Most staff are employed under one of two Enterprise Agreements that offer attractive salaries when compared to other Tasmanian state and independent schools.

Many of our staff enjoy additional employee benefits such as a discount on Hutchins and co-operating school fees, free flu vaccinations and access to our outdoor camping facility.

Our expectations

Teaching and learning is our core business and for over 160 years, we have been a leading school for boys. We are a school of high standards, impeccable reputation and strong traditions.

It is a strict requirement of our school that all staff obtain and maintain a Good Character Check.

All those who are employed by Hutchins are expected to uphold the following codes and standards to support the educational experience and standard that we promise our students and their families:

Our teachers are also required to be registered with Teachers Registration Board of Tasmania and are required to uphold their Code of Professional Ethics and Professional Teaching Standards.

All staff are required to support the School’s Christian education programs according to the practices of the Anglican Church of Australia and may be required to attend services of worship and student assemblies.

Teaching at Hutchins

Teachers participate in the total student educational program of the School which includes academic, pastoral and co-curricular programs. These programs combined with our well-resourced facilities and great staff, provide an environment where boys can become their best.

Teachers are supported to do their work by a number of key staff including Heads of School, Heads of House (pastoral care), the Director of Teaching and Learning, the Director of Staff Performance and the Head of Sport.
