Have you just completed Year 13 and unsure about starting University this autumn? Are you seeking an opportunity to gain some experience working in a school and give something back to the community but at the same time earn some money?

At Hugh Christie School, we are seeking a team of Gap Year Learning Coaches to work one to one or in small groups with some of our students whose education has been interrupted by the Covid-19 outbreak when they return in the autumn.

The Learning Coaches would be paid by an hourly rate. The minimum number of total hours a week would be 5 and the maximum up to 20. Learning coaches would all receive appropriate training before being asked to take part in coaching with students.

We are interested in providing coaching over a range of different subjects, but are particularly keen to hear from you if you studied Maths, English or Science for your A Levels.

Hugh Christie School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share that commitment. The successful coaches will be required to undergo a number of pre-employment checks including a DBS check.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please email Mrs Riddle at nriddle@tonbridgefederation.co.uk for an application form or alternatively apply directly via the school website. https://www.hughchristie.kent.sch.uk/7/vacancies/vacancy/110/gap-year-learning-coach

Long Mead Community Primary School

Long Mead Primary School serves an estate in the north end of Tonbridge. The local ward it serves has relatively high levels of deprivation for the area. As a result, the school has higher than average number of disadvantaged children on its roll.

The school has a population of around 170 children, including a nursery. The school roll has fluctuated over time and this had made stability a challenge. One priority area is to increase numbers attending the school in the nursery and reception by broadening the appeal of the school to the local community.
