We are delighted to welcome your application to  Kilnwood Vale Primary School, a brand new school opening in Kilnwood Vale, Horsham in September 2019.


This is an exciting opportunity to work with our first cohort of students, who join in September 2019, and to help shape and develop the school as it grows year on year. The school will grow to two forms of entry with a capacity of 420 children once full, but will open with one class of 30 reception children initially. We will also be opening our nursery in September with places available for 2 and 3 year olds.


Kilnwood Vale is a free school and will be part of the GLF Schools multi academy trust. We are working in partnership with Crest Nicholson, West Sussex County Council and Willmott Dixon to deliver the school.


GLF Schools aspire to create a group of academies that have a reputation for delivering an outstanding education for all children and students. Whilst operating as a part of a family, each school exists in its own right maintaining its own unique characteristics and individual identity. Whilst each school serves to meet the needs of its local community, all are united in their core purpose of providing an outstanding educational experience.


We are looking to hear from early years specialists interested in joining us, as we continue on our journey towards delivering outstanding education. This is an exciting opportunity to play a vital role, in a dedicated team of staff, to ensure the success of our pupils. We offer excellent CPD opportunities and career development within our family of schools.


Ideal candidates will:

• Work well as part of a team, as well as being self-motivated and able to work independently

• Have the ability to enthuse and engage children in purposeful learning experiences

• Be passionate about the students learning & welfare

• Have high expectations of achievement and behavior 


This is an outstanding and rare opportunity to be part of a School's development and to see your career grow as the School flourishes.
