Queen Ethelburga’s is an Independent Collegiate of four co-educational schools. Located in North Yorkshire between the towns of York and Harrogate, we offer outstanding facilities and motivated students who join us with a broad range of academic, social and cultural backgrounds. We pride ourselves on being a happy community where students can grow to reach their full potential, both academically and socially. To meet the needs of our students we offer a wide choice of qualifications, a supportive environment and an exciting programme of extra–curricular opportunities, which are underpinned by high quality teaching and learning. The school actively promotes the professional development of its staff through induction, CPD and career development opportunities.   

We are now seeking suitably qualified Cover Assistants to cover lessons in the absence of teaching staff. The successful candidates will have a positive, can do attitude and will be capable of working on their own, as well as part of a wider team. 

Cover Supervisors will need to have similar experience and will, ideally, hold a teaching qualification. Cover Supervisors will be expected to carry out other duties when they are not covering lessons

The hours of work are 40 hours per week, term time only, which includes INSET days.

The successful candidates will need to be flexible, proficient in the use of IT and have excellent interpersonal skills as you will be expected to be able to communicate with staff, students, parents and visitors to the school. 

As a thriving boarding foundation, we have seen our numbers grow year on year, making us one of the largest boarding communities in the country. Our facilities are enhanced annually to help ensure that we have everything needed to allow our young people ‘to be the best they can with the gifts that they have’ (our Hill Standard).

Please note that this is a non-residential position with no on-site accommodation being offered. Your own transport is essential due to our shift patterns and rural location.

For more information and to request an application pack please contact HR Department, on 01423 33 3512 or email, specifying which position you are interested in.
