Thank you for your interest in John Hanson Community School. We will be pleased to receive applications from well-qualified and enthusiastic staff who feel they can contribute to the high standards and ethos of the school. This document does not form part of the terms and conditions, but aims to give you more information about the town, the school, the advertised role, its context and an introduction to the students you could be working with.
Education changes lives and we are privileged to work with young people during the most important time in their lives: their childhood. Education is about opportunity and that is what all young people need, and as a school we pride ourselves in supporting young people build their confidence. We believe that young people have great things to offer and the school aims to give them the opportunity to discover their potential. They benefit from a positive, engaging, supportive environment and we aim to make a difference. Positive role models are vitally important and it falls to the larger school community to provide these. We want to inspire a new generation filled with a generosity of spirit and a determination to make things better for themselves and our community.
John Hanson Community School will inspire all students to rise to the opportunities of the future and achieve their potential, by promoting emotional resilience, social confidence and academic success.
Our first priority is safeguarding children. The school is exempted under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and as such any offer of employment will be conditional upon the receipt of a satisfactory response to a check of police records via Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
John Hanson is a comprehensive community school for students aged 11 – 16. There are currently 980 students on roll; the teaching establishment is around 55 teachers, 55 support staff and a strong sense of community. The Leadership team are totally committed to the principles of comprehensive education and providing the very best learning experience we can for each individual. It is the school’s role to ensure that all students and staff are supported to reach their full potential.
The school can trace its origins back to 1569 with the foundation of Andover Grammar School. In the 1970s the grammar school became a comprehensive school and was renamed John Hanson School after an original benefactor of the Grammar School. In 2002 the school relocated to a greenfield site towards the outskirts of Andover, very close to the A303.
