Full details of the post can be found in the attached candidate pack which includes information on the application process, the school, a copy of the job description and person specification.


Candidates are encouraged to take time to speak with the Headteacher as part of their application process as we are unable arrange visits to the school. To keep our candidates and staff safe during this period of national lockdown, we are carrying out interviews using online video-conferencing technology, rather than meeting candidates in person. NB: This may change as lockdown guidelines are eased.


Please ensure a full work history is completed in your application form including any gaps of employment and two professional referees are given.
