The Governors of St Thomas More Catholic High School are seeking to appoint a Teaching Assistant to work collaboratively with teaching staff and other support staff to enhance the development of pupils.


The role will involve working with small groups of mixed age and ability pupils with Special Educational Needs.  Previous experience of working in a school would be advantageous but not essential. 


We are a friendly and caring community placing the academic progress and welfare of our pupils at the heart of everything we do.  Working in a school as a vocation is key to our ongoing success and so offer a variety of opportunities for professional development and formation.
