Recruitment & Selection Process

After the closing date, all applications are passed to the shortlisting panel, who check the application forms against the person specification, and produce a shortlist of candidates.

Unfortunately, due to the large number of applications we receive, we are unable to reply to applicants who are not shortlisted.

If you are shortlisted, you will be invited to attend an interview (usually by email) within one week of the closing date, and asked to confirm your attendance at the interview. When we have received confirmation of your attendance, an interview schedule will be forwarded to you. Generally, this will include meeting the Headteacher, a tour of the school by some of our students, a job-related test (for support staff) or teaching a lesson (for teaching staff) and a panel interview.  More senior posts will also include an interview with staff/students/governors, a presentation, etc.

Please note that references will also be requested at the shortlisting stage.

We normally appoint on the day of interview. A member of the interview panel will telephone all candidates to advise them of the outcome, and feedback is provided on request to unsuccessful candidates.
