We require an experienced and well-qualified Librarian to manage the Learning Resources Centre and to promote and develop library provision throughout the school.  

Our Learning Resources Centre plays a central role in the learning of students at Stanborough.  It is heavily used both in and out of lesson time and, with the development of the Accelerated Reader Scheme at the school, it will play an important role in helping to develop the reading and literacy skills of our students.

The Learning Resources Centre is open from 7.30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 3.30 p.m. on Fridays, and we require someone to lead and develop this vital resource in the school.  Candidates will ideally have school library experience and have worked in a similar setting.  The ability to forge excellent relationships with both staff and students is essential.

Further details, including a job description are available from the school or downloadable from the school website. 

Applications are invited by letter to the Headteacher, (no more than 2 sides of A4 paper), outlining how you meet the person specification together with a Stanborough Application Form:
