We have a large and well stocked library, which is in constant use, so we are looking for an energetic and engaging person to be at the heart of this provision. You will be someone who has a great knowledge of books, online resources and of junior fiction, committed to promoting a love of reading. You will also be imaginative about making sure that the library is a centre of activity for students, a great place to be.

We will offer you:

● the opportunity to make a difference to the students’ experience in our school and to develop your own ideas.

● a positive and focused professional environment, well resourced and varied.

● opportunities for further development and professional learning.

We will be willing to train and develop a suitable candidate, giving you an opportunity to grow and expand your influence. Some experience of a school environment or of work with young people is important for this post.
