We consider the most important factor to be the right skills, abilities and attitude for the job which will ultimately improve the well-being and education of the pupils.  Applicants must have the right to work in the UK for the duration of the contract.  We are members of the Schools Inclusion Alliance and hold the Rainbow Flag Award.
