What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking a committed and enthusiastic Teaching Assistant to support teaching and learning at Huntington School. This role involves providing support to students aged 11-18 in the classroom.

  • Experience of supporting students in an educational or youth setting in English/Literacy or Numeracy would be an advantage.

  • You will need the ability to motivate and encourage students to develop and achieve in the school environment.

  • You will need to be responsive to the individual needs of our students and promote the inclusion of all students in the school.

  • You must have excellent communication skills, ICT capability and be able to work on their own initiative and also work well in a team

  • This role requires a confident and resilient person who can deal with students effectively in situations that may require the use of diplomacy and tact; flexibility is also vital in order to meet the demands of a busy school.

What the school offers its staff

Huntington is an 11-18 co-educational comprehensive school with a Sixth Form taking our total student numbers to approximately 1516, which includes over 300 students in the Sixth Form. Our students achieve excellent results, year-in, year-out, both at GCSE and A-level.

In Oct 2017, Ofsted rated the school outstanding in all areas. That judgment is a reflection of a lot of hard work, but only forms part of what makes Huntington so special. As a school, we by no means rest on our laurels, but continually strive to be better.

Join us at Huntington and benefit from:

  • great training where we do everything we can to help you develop your practice;

  • caring colleagues & wonderful students; and

  • a culture which values respect, honesty and kindness.
