Teaching Assistant

29.16 hrs per week, 39 weeks per year: Grade 3 Pt 17 

Your main role will be to support individual students and small groups of students with a variety of special education needs, mainly within the classroom.

Thurston Community College is a thriving mixed comprehensive school which boasts a strong sense of community, a supportive, caring ethos and a positive, friendly atmosphere.  Staff morale is high (recognised by Ofsted in all recent inspections) because Thurston Community College offers an exciting, dynamic learning environment where staff work collaboratively, share a common sense of purpose and are relentless in the pursuit of outcomes of the highest quality for every student. 

In our most recent Ofsted inspection the College was graded as ‘a good school which is well led and managed’.  Ofsted recognised that ‘the behaviour of students is outstanding; they are mature, polite and courteous in their dealings with adults and other students and they are eager to learn.’ 

Recently reorganised from a 14-18 upper school to form an 11-18 secondary school, we are proud of the initial successes of our new structure.  Externally moderated tests in English and Mathematics confirm that students at KS3 are making rapid progress and 2016 outcomes at KS4 and KS5 indicate that progress and attainment are in line with the national average and improving. 

Our guiding principles are “inspire; empower; achieve”.  Our ambition is that every student will be inspired by learning, empowered to seize life’s opportunities and will leave Thurston Community College as a happy, confident and well-rounded young person, having achieved their full potential.

Thurston village is a 40 minute drive or train journey from Cambridge, where road and rail links provide transport to central London in less than an hour.  If you are excited by this post, its challenges and opportunities; if you relish the prospect of joining our outstanding staff; please complete an application form.
