The school offers boarding facilities with around 120 students living on site and a further 80 Sixth Form students living in accommodation nearby.

We are looking for an experienced IT Technician to join us as soon as possible. The successful candidate will be responsible for:

- Liaising with our external remote IT support provider

There is a high level of contact with both internal and external stakeholders including staff, students and parents, and as such candidates must have a friendly and professional approach to dealing with people and problem solving. Experience in a similar role is essential and relevant Microsoft qualifications (e.g. MCSA, MCSE) are desirable. The successful candidate will also demonstrate a passion for developing and improving the school’s IT provision, including supporting teachers with the use of ICT in the classroom. An interest in theatre sound and lighting is essential as the post holder will be supporting the school’s Artistic Faculty with theatre tech.
