Application Procedure

Candidates should complete a Portsmouth City Council application form and return it to the school so that it is received by noon on 27th November 2019.  

We will then send for references which will need to be returned by email by 6th December 2019. We will need to receive two references – by employers - by that date in order to invite you to interview. It is therefore essential that you supply us with an e-mail address for your referees. It would help if you could forewarn your referees of deadlines for references in advance, so please help us to help you, by forewarning your referees of the importance of this.

We will email those candidates that we are inviting to interview on 6th December as well as those that we are not taking through.

We hope you will be able to visit us beforehand. Please try to do this if your circumstances allow. We have set aside three times for this: 20th November at 13:15, 21st November at 11:00 and 25th November at 10:30

Please phone 02392-661191, or visit us, to talk through the role in more detail with the Headteacher. Application packs can be requested by phoning the school office.
