There has never been a more exhilarating time to join us at Cedars Upper School! We are thrilled to announce that our recent Ofsted inspection in 2023 has resulted in an overall ‘Good’ grading , with our Sixth Form earning an ‘Outstanding’ grading, of which we are very proud. We take pride in our continuous pursuit of excellence and the exceptional educational environment we provide for our 1200 students.

At Cedars, we have a strong reputation as a popular and high-performing school. Our achievements were further highlighted by the excellent set of results our students attained in both GCSE and A-Level examinations in summer 2022. Building on these successes, we are determined to reach new heights and aspire for an outstanding status. A large number of our sixth form students move onto Russell group Universities where they continue to flourish. 

Currently, we are seeking an exceptional cover manager to join our school. The role of the Cover Manager is to provide a range of duties to enhance the learning experiences of the pupils in the absence of the class teacher. It includes organising cover for absent teachers and managing a team of cover supervisors. In addition, you will be covering lessons to ensure students have the highest possible level of learning experiences when their teacher is absent.

At Cedars, we place significant emphasis on continuous professional development. We offer excellent in-house CPD opportunities, fostering an extremely supportive and positive atmosphere for all our staff. Our students, who are hardworking, polite, and eager to learn, truly deserve outstanding opportunities to better themselves. 

Come and be a part of our extraordinary team at Cedars Upper School, where positivity, growth, and achievement flourish. 

Please note that the application process will remain open until we receive a sufficient number of applications, but the final closing date is 12 pm on Friday 29th September 2023. Interviews will be conducted shortly after this date.

As a trust committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, we expect all staff members to share this commitment. Consequently, applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

CVs will not be accepted for any posts based in the school.
