New, growing school offers increasing responsibility across areas of site supervision in beautiful parkland location. 

Career Opportunity

A new opening has arisen for an organised, practical and dedicated worker interested in overseeing and managing this new school’s buildings and grounds. Initially these will be the temporary classrooms near Lloyd Park, South Croydon for the first group of 180 students joining Coombe Wood School this September. At this stage the ‘grounds’ will be small, but the career prospects are very good as the school grows rapidly and moves to the planned, adjacent permanent building in a couple of years’ time. In addition to caring for the site this role needs someone to drive the school minibus to transfer students to various sports facilities.

The new Head and staff team have been appointed and seek a Site Supervisor to join their team based at the new temporary buildings. Main responsibilities will include: Security; Caretaking; General Maintenance; some Cleaning; First Aid response; Minibus Driving.

The role covers the traditional duties required to open up and maintain the school site as a safe and pleasant working environment that encourages students to learn and have a pride in their school. Further details of the duties are listed in the Job Description in the Candidate Pack available for download on 

The Sixth Form will open in September 2020 by which time it is intended the permanent building will be fully operational, based in its extensive 25 acre site. The school will grow into an 8-form entry school (NOR 1680) including 480 in the Sixth Form.


Our ethos derives from the theoretical and practical nature of sport with TEAMWORK, RESPECT, ENJOYMENT, DISCIPLINE and SPORTSMANSHIP as its core values. All staff are expected to demonstrate and support these in their everyday work. Coombe Wood School teaching and non-teaching staff will work closely together across many different areas of the school to ensure the best possible learning experiences for our students.

Coombe Wood School is part of Folio Education Trust: This is a local collaboration of schools, with future possibilities of shared training or working at more than one school, so by becoming part of the team at Coombe Wood School, your career will experience wider benefits.


This is a new secondary fully-inclusive co-educational school, serving the communities of South and Central Croydon, established to meet an urgent rising local demand. Initially housed in temporary accommodation, the proposed site for the ‘new build’ school is opposite Lloyd Park in South Croydon, with an excellent Tramlink service to and from East Croydon station (just 5 minutes journey-time away) and a short walk from several bus routes. Over £35 million is to be invested in building a state-of-the-art school which will include enhanced sports facilities, comprising a competition-sized sports hall, a full-size 3G artificial floodlit surface and aspirations to include a closed circuit cycle track (CRC) and 8-lane floodlit athletics track.
