Wootton Park School (WPS) is a growing school that is seeking to appoint two inspirational full time Teachers of KS1 to join our current talented team from April 2018.
WPS opened in 2016 with two Reception and four Year 7 classes. We will grow exponentially year on year until we reach 1260. Currently housed in a first rate, bespoke modular building, we will move into our £20 million state-of-the-art school building in the summer 2019.
WPS offers a first-rate and unique learning environment, ensuring high levels of academic achievement and personal development for all, while promoting the value of public service and building a stronger society. As an all-through (4-19) school, we believe this brings a significant number of benefits to learners and staff, and we seek staff who share this vision with us.

You will be required to support the overall progress and development of learners within your curriculum area.
All members of our team must be committed to maximising potential and continuous improvement, and be willing to participate fully in all aspects of school life within and beyond the classroom. Our quest for excellence, must, however, also be combined with our unwavering commitment to care and support. Therefore, anyone seeking appointment to this role must demonstrate warmth, humour, resilience, and above all, emotional intelligence in order to uphold the values of our school.
