We have an exciting new opportunity for an enthusiastic, highly motivated and experienced Teaching Assistant to support the English Department. You will be joining a thriving team who deliver innovative and enjoyable lessons to students who really want to learn.

Key duties will include:

  • Advancing students’ learning in a range of settings including working 1:1 and small groups.
  • Working closely with the Head of English and team members regarding preparation of resources, and delivery of learning activities.

We are looking for someone who is organised, flexible in their approach and has proven experience of supporting students at secondary school level in English. The ideal candidate will be able to empathise with students’ learning needs and contribute to their learning goals, whilst encouraging independence.

An ability to differentiate, communicate and adjust to the learning styles of identified students and excellent motivational skills are essential. HLTA status and/or experience in supporting students with dyslexia is desirable, but not essential. In return for your hard work you will receive exceptional support and training, and the rewards that come with supporting students who really want to learn.

We are one of the 100 top performing schools in terms of the progress our students make between the end of Key Stage 2 and their GCSEs, and highly sought after with 1,300 students on roll including 239 in our 6th form.
