Our Vision and Culture

Corfe Hills School is in a fabulous location within easy reach of Bournemouth and its beaches, Poole and its harbour, the Jurassic Coast and the Dorset countryside. The school serves the catchment area of Broadstone, Corfe Mullen and the wider area and we truly believe that all of our students are exceptional. Whilst the school was graded as “requires improvement” in November 2017, two years later, following 3 years of significant and sustained improvement, it has changed almost beyond recognition.

The 2019 GCSE results are exceptional with a Progress 8 score of +0.38 putting Corfe Hills in the top 20% of schools nationally and Progress 8 in Maths of +0.8 putting the results in the top 5% of schools nationally.  In addition, Engineering was one of the top two courses across the school in terms of subject progress.

Our vision is “High Expectations – Exceptional Individuals” and we truly believe in the potential of every young person who joins the school.  We also have an exceptionally committed staff, including talented teachers and a fabulous support staff who provide a range of functions including pastoral and administrative support to students.  Working at Corfe Hills involves 100% commitment to our vision - “High Expectations - Exceptional Individuals”.

At Corfe Hills School we are passionate about excellence in learning.  We believe that this is the foundation which will enable our young people to achieve the highest possible outcomes during their time with us.  We have the highest expectations of students – that they will engage fully in their learning, have high aspirations for themselves and embrace the wide range of opportunities available to them both inside and outside the classroom.

The Role

In this role will be assisting students requiring various levels of support working either with individuals, separate small groups and in mainstream classes.  You will liaise closely with teaching staff to plan and deliver work programmes and keep records of students’ progress as are required by the school.  A key part of this role is to establish a supportive relationship with individuals/groups and parents if necessary.

This is an excellent opportunity to develop current skills and gain greater experience in working with young people.
