Term-time only Start Date

The King’s School is a warm and friendly environment, with small class sizes, offering you the opportunity to enjoy working and develop your skills, all in a beautiful, rural setting. We have a passionate staff team, who work together to create a learning space for our pupils that challenges and inspires, whilst providing outstanding pastoral care. As staff in a Christian school, we are able to encourage our pupils in their journey of faith and model a relationship with Jesus that is real and relevant. It is this holistic approach – academic progress, character, faith – that makes our school such a special place to work in.

As a Learning Support Assistant (LSA), you will have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to our SEN Team. You will work with a secondary pupil who needs individual support throughout the day, both in lessons and outside of the classroom. This rewarding work benefits from the building of effective understanding, and positive working relationships, between a pupil and their LSA. Specific training can be provided to help develop your knowledge and skills in any areas that are new to you.
The King’s School has its own pay scale, with contributions to an employer’s pension scheme and healthcare cover available to all staff. Further details, along with an application pack, including job description, are available from the school:
