Bracknell Forest runs an online application pool system for secondary school applicants. Your details are circulated to the Headteachers at our secondary schools and schools interested in your application will contact you with suitable vacancy details and invite you for a school visit and interview. We will continue to match your application to school vacancies until you find a post which suits you.
Our schools are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children/young people. School positions require an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check because it involves contact with (or access to data concerning) children.
