Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

About Us

30 hours per week 

Term Time only (39 weeks)

To start as soon as available in the summer term or 2nd September 2024

As one of the most successful and over-subscribed, non-selective schools in South West London, we are a truly inclusive and dynamic place to work.

The successful candidate will work as part of the Learning Support Department supporting pupils with special educational needs, both with and without Educational Care Plans.  Previous experience is not essential, but the successful candidate will have a genuine desire to see children with a range of needs included within the normal classroom environment wherever possible.  A good standard of literacy and numeracy is a prerequisite for this post.  

As a vibrant school of just over 1,000 pupils with a thriving academic Sixth Form, Saint Cecilia’s is also a caring Christian community, and together with a close-knit team of dedicated teaching and support staff, has achieved excellent academic success. Whilst candidates must be in sympathy with the aims of a Church of England School, a Christian commitment is not essential.

Located close to Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Club, Saint Cecilia’s is well connected to central London and the West End, as well as the tranquil Surrey countryside, by exceptional transport links. The school lies within the Inner London Weighting area, which adds a significant increase to salary.

The nearest underground station is Southfields (District line – Zone 3 and less than a five-minute walk), which is only five minutes from Wimbledon station and 16 minutes from Earl’s Court. The area is well served by numerous bus connections to Clapham Junction and Richmond.

Closing Date: 1st July 2024 (9am)

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All posts are subject to an enhanced DBS check. 

The school will research all shortlisted candidates on social media platforms and the internet, and the recruitment panel may take this information into consideration during the recruitment process. 

The online checks will be carried out by Social Media Check, an independent agency.

We regret that we are unable to offer skilled worker visa sponsorship to non-UK citizens for this role.

Please note we do not accept CVs.
