Kirkby High School seek an enthusiastic, reliable, outgoing and well-motivated individual to join our community to provide individual and group counselling to students.  Previous experience of working with children is desirable.

We have very high expectations of all staff and for the right person this is a superb opportunity.

There are currently 922 students at the school.  The school ethos is central to our mission of “Excellence for All”.

Our latest Ofsted inspection (December 2018) judged three criteria as ‘Good’ – effectiveness of leadership and management, quality of teaching, learning and assessment and personal development, behaviour and welfare.   Inspectors highlighted the vastly improved leadership and high ambitions which has helped to improve the quality of teaching and pupils’ behaviour.

We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment; any offer of employment will be subject to receipt of an enhanced DBS disclosure.  To comply with the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 all prospective employees will be required to supply evidence of eligibility to work in the UK.
