Enthusiasm, flexibility, the ability to work as part of a team, and a willingness to participate fully in a busy and thriving school are essential, as is a sense of humour. 

These appointments are initially for one year, but this tenure may be extended by mutual agreement. The post would suit a graduate considering a career in teaching, a number of our previous Graduates have gone on to complete PGCE courses. However, we will also consider those wishing to take “a year out” to gain experience after the rigours of academic life at university. 

Accommodation will be provided throughout the duration of the post and meals provided during term time; salary by negotiation.
