The Chiltern Hills Academy invites applications for an exciting opportunity to join the staff of a successful, mixed 11-18 Church of England Academy in the Chiltern Hills, conveniently situated at the end of the London Underground Metropolitan Line. 

We are seeking to appoint enthusiastic and dynamic Teaching Assistants to work alongside our pupils and teachers to enhance the learning of a small group of students in a classroom setting. We require candidates that are passionate about the importance of learning and working with our young people to help them succeed. We welcome people with or without experience but we are particularly interested in people who have some training or knowledge in working with EAL students or students with physical difficulties.

We have recently completed a capital build with an investment of £10 million which provides an excellent, well-resourced teaching environment. “Leaders know their school well” our OFSTED inspection recognised (February 2017) and further judged the school to be ‘good’ in all categories. “Staff, pupils and parents fully support the headteacher’s vision and would recommend this school to other parents”. “Pupils have embraced the school’s values and ethos. As a result they behave well in lessons and the school is calm and orderly”.

We would be pleased to show prospective applicants around the Academy. Please contact  Mrs Mistry (HR Administrator) to arrange a visit. Details of the post are on our website, together with an application form. Completed applications should be submitted to Mrs Jo Mistry, by email jmistry@chacademy.co.uk and should include a letter indicating your strengths for this position. 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment. All staff appointments are subject to an enhanced DBS check and satisfactory references.
