What the school offers its staff

Boldon School is an attractive proposition for staff and students, with our school roll growing rapidly we are very near to 100% capacity. We are a Good school (Ofsted 2019). Boldon School is an exciting place to teach and inspire. Staff play meaningful roles in equipping our students with the skills that will help them achieve here at Boldon and, ultimately, in their lives beyond school.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic, driven professional to join our school in a temporary capacity to cover Maternity Leave. An excellent knowledge and understanding of the History curriculum is essential.

ECT applicants will be welcomed.
