Further details about the role

Our Teaching Assistants play a vital role in the College’s success. They contribute extensively in and beyond the classroom and are a friendly team of skilled professionals. Their work enables young people to flourish and achieve their potential in mainstream classes and in our on-site inclusion facility, Compass House. They operate in a variety of ways, with some specialising in English, Maths or Science and others supporting across the curriculum. Some TAs run small literacy groups whilst others might work with one or two pupils during a lesson. Our pupils have a variety of needs and so training is vital and we share our skills and experiences daily. The role of the TA is challenging but ultimately rewarding.

Sawston Village College is an inclusive, comprehensive 11-16 academy, set on a picturesque open campus, a few miles south of the culturally iconic and aspirational city of Cambridge. It was the first purpose-built Village College in England and we are proud of the fact that it is still heralded as a model for community education and remains true to Henry Morris’ founding principles. Many members of the local community visit each week to participate in learning, sporting or leisure activities. We are also proud to be a founding member of the Anglian Learning Trust, a family of like-minded schools serving over 5500 pupils from ages 3-19 in this region. The Trust affords us opportunities to learn from each other, prosper from outstanding leadership development and build strong professional networks to achieve ambitious objectives.

We are a very welcoming and highly successful school, one in which all staff are valued and all contribute to our strong caring ethos. The College is listed in the top ten state secondary schools without a sixth form in the UK (The Sunday Times, 2023). Pupils are at the centre of all that we do but we can only succeed when all professionals work together, collaboratively and supportively, to ensure a positive, safe and calm learning environment in which all pupils can thrive. We ensure our staff have the resources, development and opportunities to fulfil their roles and responsibilities. Staff wellbeing is vital to our success and we consider workload and the working environment very carefully.
