Subject to meeting operational needs we can consider a variety of flexible working patterns and hours. Full-time and part-time roles are available, including weekends. Please indicate clearly in your application what hours you are interested in working.

Bank Holidays) per annum (some to be taken at Christmas closedown), a stakeholder pension scheme for eligible staff, free on-site parking, discounted membership of the on-site Sports Centre, free lunch when pupils are on site and uniform. Although there is a local train station your own transport would be beneficial.
