We are looking for high-calibre applicants with a passion for learning, high expectations for all pupils and good standards of literacy and numeracy.  If you are looking for a challenge and the opportunity to be part of a dynamic team then we would love to hear from you.

Pro rata'd salary on KR3 
(30hrs @ 43 paid weeks) will be approximately £12,520.00 gross
