With increasing student numbers, two Student Support Workers are required to join our dedicated Student Services Team to take a proactive role in the support of the educational, social and physical needs of the students. 

Humphry Davy is a truly comprehensive community in which every child is cared for, supported and stretched. Working closely with the Head of Lower School, the successful candidates will work with staff, parents, carers and agencies to respond to the daily needs of students and assist with their welfare, attendance and academic progress.  A key focus of the Lower School role is to support the effective transition of children from their primary school to ensure all students succeed.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our popular and over-subscribed school in beautiful West Cornwall. Ofsted (Short Inspection November 2016) judged the school as ‘good’ stating, “Across the school we found that pupils were very keen to learn.  Pupils we spoke with enjoy coming to school and feel that they are making good progress.  Pupils are well-mannered and keen to tell visitors how good the school is and how it keeps them safe” and “Without question, school staff work to ensure that each and every pupil achieves their best in a nurturing environment”.
