The London Oratory School invites you to apply for the post of Learning Support Assistant. Trad, but quirky, The London Oratory is amongst the city’s most prestigious Catholic schools. Educating boys from 7 to 18, with girls in the sixth form, it puts a strong emphasis on music with a liturgical twist, all as part of a broad, liberal arts curriculum – but that’s not all, so do please visit our website for a fuller flavour: www.london-oratory.org!
The School enjoys a highly competitive salary scale to recognise and reward the very committed body of staff that make up its Common Room.
We are recruiting three Learning Support Assistants to join our supportive and collegial Learning Support Department. The successful candidates will benefit from, and be able to contribute to, a well-ordered, warm-hearted and highly disciplined school. The School puts a premium on a virtue based, character development curriculum in the Catholic, Oratorian tradition, underpinning and enriching both knowledge rich and skills-based approaches to pedagogy; as such, all teaching staff are expected to make a contribution to the rich intellectual, spiritual, pastoral and co-curricular life of the school, in whatever way their talents suggest.
In addition to first class, tasteful facilities (including on-site parking, a state of the art gym and swimming pool) and a highly competitive salary package, here are three reasons as to why you might consider working with us:
1. Our vision: A compelling vision of what a distinctively Catholic education should look like, open to the world and fitting pupils to move through it with panache and confidence;
2. Our pupils: Well-disciplined, switched on, cosmopolitan - and quirky - supported in their growth by skilled staff and a tightly structured pastoral system;
3. Our priority: A highly supportive and collegial atmosphere at all levels that values and recognises the great work that both teaching and non-teaching staff do, and the challenges and sacrifices they make to do it. In addition to daily freshly brewed coffee, we also offer full access to staff medical and counselling services, should these be required;
Applications will be considered as they are submitted, and the School reserves the right to interview suitable applicants before the deadline.
We understand that timing is essential in all successful relationships, and so, if now is less than ideal for you, please do consider putting you CV and details in our ‘drop box’ on the ‘Recruitment’ tab on our website (www.london-oratory.org) and we’ll be sure to keep you in view.
The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service. We are an equal opportunities employer.
