Aldridge School – An Academy is a successful converter academy with a good track record of results at both GCSE and A Level. Our most recent Ofsted inspection (February 2017) rated us as Good in all areas.  This is an excellent opportunity for inspired, committed and enthusiastic people to join a thriving department in this popular and successful school.  Our motto ‘Achieving Excellence Together’ is at the heart of our work.

You will be required to support pupils with a variety of needs and therefore should have an interest in supporting students with special educational needs.  This may involve working with less able pupils or those who need help to reach their potential at a higher level.  Enthusiasm, the ability to work in a team and the commitment to raising pupil achievement and removing barriers to pupils’ learning are essential.  A GCSE qualification in English/Mathematics would be an advantage as would a teaching assistant qualification. 

To apply please complete an associate staff application form which can be found on our website and a letter explaining your interest.  Please send applications to recruitment@aldridgeschool.org.

Aldridge School – An Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment.  The post is subject to enhanced DBS and safeguarding checks.
