We are seeking to appoint a teaching assistant to work as part of the English Department to support intervention with students who require additional mentoring to achieve GCSE. The successful applicant will be required to work with individuals and small groups across years 7 to 11 as required.

Our staff are dedicated to securing the best possible outcomes for every student and are enormously proud of Ofsted’s Outstanding rating and strive for constant improvement.
