King’s School is seeking to appoint a Cover Supervisor to supervise groups or whole classes, where a teacher is absent. Where there is not a requirement to cover lessons or cover duties, the post holder will provide administrative support to the wider school. 

This is a busy and varied role, as the successful applicant will work across all departments of the school as required. The successful applicant will be working with other experienced Cover Supervisors and will join a welcoming and supportive staff team. If you are experienced in working with young people, managing a busy schedule, and are a flexible team player we would like to hear from you. The role may particularly suit someone who is interested in training to be a teacher having gained some experience in school; we have successfully taken one of our former Cover Supervisors through teaching training, to a permanent contract with us. 

Who are we?

King’s School is an ecumenical Christian School in the Diocese of Chichester, affiliated to the Church of England. The school opened its doors to its first cohort of students in September 2013 and there are currently approximately 600 students in years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 with a team of over 60 teachers and support staff. In August 2019 we moved into our new permanent site in West Blatchington. We are now the proud occupiers of a three-storey new build which has fully equipped, state of the art, science laboratories and prep rooms.  

Our aim is to provide a high quality education in a caring Christian environment in which every student is known and cared for. We are committed to outstanding academic performance and to fostering a love of learning. Our work and relationships are based upon the four core Christian values of Love, Forgiveness, Respect and Responsibility and through these we encourage and support every student and member of staff to be the best that they can be.

Why join King’s School?

• Enthusiastic, committed and supportive staff team and SLT
