We are looking for a Cover Supervisor who is enthusiastic and committed to the school and who will be part of a team and the wider school community. 

The role of the Cover Supervisor involves the supervision of students in learning activities, ensuring that the learning objectives set by the teacher are achieved and that good behaviour by the students is maintained throughout lessons. Appropriate records are to be maintained as required; enabling accurate feedback to be given to the teachers and students on the conduct of the lessons.

Cover Supervisors are an essential part of any team within the school. They both cover lessons at short notice and from time-to-time take on longer cover assignments. They have to confidently carry out lessons, which cover the entire curriculum, from English to Science, Music to DT.


If you are ambitious, talented and keen to make sure students progress or looking to gain experience in teaching – then this is the job for you!

Candidates should apply as soon as possible, as applications will be dealt with as they arrive.

Information about the school

The Royal Harbour Academy is a mixed, non-selective 11-18 foundation school of 900 students on the border of the lovely coastal towns of Ramsgate and Broadstairs in South East Kent.

The school is at an exciting time of its development having been formed out of the amalgamation of two schools in 2015. The school is arranged over a split site with Years 7 and 8 on our Newlands Lane site and Year 9 along with Key Stages 4 and 5 at our Marlowe Way premises.

We are an International Baccalaureate Organisation World School and run International Baccalaureate programmes for our 6th Form and Key Stage 3 students. Our Lower Site broadly follows a primary school structure with students having fewer teachers and a strong focus on literacy and numeracy progression.

We are in the process of formally academising and work closely with our Coastal Academy Trust partner schools which include Dane Court Grammar School and Cliftonville Primary School. The school is making tremendous progress and it is an exciting time to join our team. Our most recent Ofsted inspection gave glowing praise about the school, judging behaviour, personal development and the 6th Form as good.
