We are looking to build our committed and passionate team in line with our growing school and are seeking to appoint an inspirational Teaching Assistant to join our talented EYFS team from September 2017.   

 Having opened with two Reception and four Year 7 classes in September 2016 at Wootton Hall Park, Wootton Park School will grow exponentially until it reaches its full capacity of 1,260 learners. Wootton Park School 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 for learners and staff, and we seek staff who share this vision with us.

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 enthusiasm, warmth, humour, resilience, and above all, emotional intelligence in order to uphold the values of our school. 

We have huge ambition for our school and will be outstanding in all aspects. If you are inspired by this exceptional opportunity to join us at this early stage of our journey to excellence, we want to hear from you.
