We are seeking to appoint a Learning Support Assistant to support subject teachers in the delivery of personalised learning for some of our pupils with a range of SpLDs. You should be passionate about inspiring young people to engage with all aspects of learning. 

You should ideally have an English or English/Humanities related degree or at least two English/Humanities A levels. Experience of working in a school is not a requirement. This post would suit a candidate who is considering a career as an English or Humanities teacher and might want to be trained on the Schools Direct Programme in a year's time.

Thames is a thriving small independent secondary school, recognised for its excellent academic achievement, celebration of each individual pupil’s abilities and its strong Christian ethos that promotes high standards of behaviour, respect and self-esteem. The school is a member of the Independent Schools Association and is inspected by ISI. It is endorsed in the Good Schools Guide and has won six Good Schools Guide awards and an ISA national award.

Excellent career development opportunities exist over the short to medium term as the school grows. Without compromising our ethos of valuing the individual, we are developing plans to grow from two stream entry to three, and add a sixth form by 2020, in new state of the art, purpose-built premises.

Thames Christian College School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
