Thank you for showing an interest in this position at Moorside High School, part of Consilium Academies Trust. An exciting opportunity has arisen for the post of Teaching Assistant.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record of working within a secondary education setting and share the school’s ambition to raise standards and aspirations by having a positive impact on our students, their families and the wider school community.

Moorside High School is a fantastic place to work, and I am extremely privileged to lead an inspired team of staff who are dedicated to the education of our 1116 students. We are a school where we get the balance right between academic progress, pastoral support, and the wider curriculum enrichment. As we move from the challenges of the pandemic, we are focusing on a balance of measures to tackle catch-up and then move us on to become a truly great school. There is an energy and a passion amongst staff to work on marginal gains and continually refine what we do. The fact that it really is a lovely place to work should not lead anyone to under-estimate the level of ambition we have here. There is no doubt that the school has improved very significantly over the past few years, but we are conscious about not wanting to rest on our laurels and recognise that we have created the opportunity to do something special.

Moorside High School is a proud member of Consilium Academies, a family of nine schools throughout the North of England. As part of this family, we work collaboratively with a focus on ‘Enriching Lives and Inspiring Ambitions’ of all the children who attend our schools.

At Moorside High School, we are very proud of our inclusive ethos, and our core purpose, ‘To ensure every student leaves us ready for their next successful chapter, with students attending university or starting a fulfilling career.’

This is an exciting time to join Moorside High School and we thank you for your interest in joining us. We are looking for a candidate with energy and commitment to ensure the highest of standards are met by all students in our all-inclusive school.
