We believe this is an exceptional opportunity for the right person.


Given the current ongoing situation in the UK, contrary to our normal recruitment practices, we are not inviting you to visit the school.

Instead, we ask that you visit our school website, where we are sure you can get a good insight into our school and what matters to us here in preparation for writing your supporting statement and engaging in an interview with us. 


Regarding the recruitment process, we would normally have 4 parts:

1. Main interview

2. Staff interview

3. Pupil interview

4. Lesson observation


We anticipate doing the first two parts using video conferencing.


For the fourth part, you will be asked to film yourself introducing a piece of learning that you then share with us and supply us with the resources for.

It's time to get your creative and ambitious hat on and transport us into your classroom world!

Prior to that part of the recruitment process we would also ask to see a copy of your passport for verification purposes.


If you are a prospective NQT, our school will seek references from your class teacher, placement school SLT mentor and course tutor as part of the appointment process.
