We are looking to appoint a full time teaching assistant in Key Stage 1 with the scope to work in other year groups in the longer term. You must have a good pass in GCSE English and Maths or equivalent.

The successful candidate will be able to inspire and enthuse children, getting the best from them through encouragement, support, endless belief and determination. We are looking for someone who can accept and work under close direction whilst knowing when to show initiative and adaptability.

We think it is vital that you fit well into our team. We are dedicated, conscientious and ambitious for our children and for our school. We work hard but we support each other and visitors to the school often comment how friendly and positive the school is. That's how we like it!

Informal visits prior to application are very much encouraged.  


Information about the school

We are a popular, oversubscribed single form entry Catholic primary school. In September 2018 we had a very successful Ofsted inspection in which we were judged ‘good’ in all categories.

Year after year our academic results significantly exceed national averages, not only for high achievers but also for pupils with additional needs and those who receive pupil premium.

Built in 2005, and receiving the Royal Institute of British Architecture award, we are fortunate to have truly exceptional facilities set in the beautiful grounds of Brockhill Country Park in Hythe, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The classrooms are spacious, clean, modern and enjoy sea views. Coupled with this we are a stone’s throw from the beautiful and historic High Street in Hythe, The Royal Military Canal, The English Channel, The Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch miniature railway and the North Downs area of outstanding natural beauty. We are very fortunate to have close links to the secondary school next door which has a 'Farm School', and adjacent is a Forest School which we have close links to.
