Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA)

Required as soon as possible – 30 hours per week, term time only

I hope you find the information on our website useful.  If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

St Peter’s is a Catholic school with a strong Christian ethos which underpins all we do. We are also an Academy jointly sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth and the De La Salle Order – an international organisation which has been running schools for over 300 years.

The school consists of two sites, with Primary accommodated at Iford and Years 7 to 13 at Southbourne. It is a school with a tradition of success, oversubscribed every year and benefitting from a deservedly positive reputation in the local community. Relationships with families are affirming and constructive, with parents and carers keen to support the school and the children’s learning.

We are not a complacent community; all staff are keen to learn and improve, developing pedagogy through research, shared practice and innovation.

Should you wish to apply for this post, please complete the application form and associated documents below, returning them for the attention of Caroline Joy, HR Officer, St Peter’s School, St Catherine’s Road, Bournemouth BH4 6AH or via email to supportstaff@st-peters.bournemouth.sch.uk . The closing date for applications is by 8.00am, Friday 16 October. I am anticipating that interviews will take place on Tuesday 20 October. If you are invited to attend for interview, there will be an expectation that all candidates will teach a session. Provided candidates reach the necessary standard in this part of the selection process, they will be invited for the final interview.

If, you do not receive a telephone call or email from us inviting you for an interview by 19 October, please assume that on this occasion your application was not successful. However, I would like to thank you for your interest in St Peter’s School.

I look forward to receiving your application.

Yours sincerely
