We are a Humanities Specialist College which became an all through school in September 2012. We achieved IIP Gold in December 2013 and have been awarded Teaching School Status. At Waverley we try to create an environment which allows everyone to develop mutual respect for each other and a respect for learning. This is an exciting time to join Waverley School.
We moved to new landmark buildings that provide everyone with state of the art facilities for learning, teaching and training. As part of the exciting growth plans for the School, we are expanding our team to meet future requirements. We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated individuals to join our team as Level 2 Teaching Assistants in our Secondary Phase. These are full time 36.5 hour per week positions.

Candidates must be able to use their own initiative and be able to communicate confidently and effectively with children, staff and parents.
