The Reach Free School is a new secondary Free School which opened in September 2013 for the young people of Mill End, Maple Cross and Rickmansworth.

Borne from the need for more secondary school places in the area, The Reach Free School has been established and developed by a group of teachers and local parents. It aspires to be an outstanding school, where every child achieves academic excellence, contributes to their community, and enjoys learning.

The school is seeking a  talented, supportive, adaptable individual to take on the broad role of Assistant Teacher in the new school.

•Opportunities to develop a broad range of skills in a vibrant and evolving environment
•Opportunities to progress to a career in teaching via the Schools Direct programme where viable
