This is an exciting time to join Abbeyfield School: under the outstanding and dynamic Leadership Team, the school is moving from strength to strength. Our Ofsted in March 2017 described us as a ‘flourishing’ school with outstanding leadership and management and pupil behaviour. As a result, both the leaders and students are looking for high calibre teachers who are committed to delivering outstanding teaching and learning opportunities for all. Abbeyfield School provides lots of opportunities for career progression for applicants who are looking to develop their teaching and careers in the future. 

The Governors of Abbeyfield School are seeking to make the appointment of two enthusiastic Teaching Assistants.  The successful applicants will have the exciting opportunity to work within a highly motivated team who are fully committed to developing students to fulfil their potential. They will be required to support teachers in the classroom and students on a one-to-one basis or in small groups and to help supervise our Learning Zone and Haven. Experience of managing positive behaviour would be an advantage as well as experience of students with various special educational needs, including those on the autism spectrum and those with attachment disorder.

Abbeyfield is a community school which occupies purpose built premises. It is situated in a beautiful location within commuting distance of Bath, Bristol and Swindon. The school has had three successful Ofsted inspections and we are proud to offer:

  • Excellent students who will work with you to achieve the highest standards
  • Strong support and high quality professional development
  • A range of excellent teaching facilities – in dedicated classrooms
  • A strong leadership team and middle-management support
