The Cherwell School is a high performing and oversubscribed comprehensive school in Oxford (1990 students on roll, including 620 in the Sixth Form).  We achieved GCSE progress results in the top 5% of all schools in 2018.  We are pleased that we hold an ‘Outstanding’ rating by Ofsted as we feel this is a fair reflection of the school, not least as we recognise that we have the capacity to develop and improve further. We consider ourselves to be a school which has at its heart “opportunity, responsibility, excellence” and we aim to make this a deeper reality for all of our students and staff in the years to come.  Our aims are supported by our designation as a National Teaching School and as a School Centered Initial Teacher Training provider.  We are committed to the professional learning and career development of our staff and work in conjunction with the River Learning Trust to raise standards. 

We are recruiting a permanent assistant to work with our staff team supporting bilingual (and multilingual) students across the school.  The successful candidate will be working with both staff and students in various subject areas supporting the integration of beginner bilingual students, assisting with administrative tasks, monitoring the achievement of more advanced learners of English as an additional language and liaising with families and communities.  We are looking for a colleague who enjoys being with young people, has a flexible and positive approach and are able to work as part of a team.
