All King’s School support staff are eligible to join the Local Government Pension Scheme, which is a defined benefit scheme, under which the school contributes 17.6% of an individual’s salary.

The King’s School with 1120 students is an outstanding 11-18 comprehensive school with ambitious students, supportive parents and excellent facilities.  We have a strong reputation for success across the curriculum and an extra-curricular programme which is valued highly by the whole school community.  A commitment to the philosophy of ‘Achievement for All’ and a desire to work in an exciting, dynamic, creative and supportive way are essential for all staff at The King’s School.

We are seeking to appoint Teaching Assistants to work across the curriculum, offering support to students with special educational needs.  The Skills for Learning department is a large and successful area of the school where teamwork, mutual support and high quality training are paramount.  We are looking for the successful candidates to work across the curriculum and be part of the key worker programme.  You will need to be prepared to support a wide range of students, be flexible, enjoy working with young people and, very importantly, retain a sense of humour.  Previous candidates need not apply.

To apply, please download an application form below and submit it to or contact Mrs Pocock at the same email address for further details.  This is a rolling advert, therefore there is no closing date. We are committed to safeguarding the welfare of students so all staff are enhanced DBS checked.
