Job vacancies arise from time-to-time where members of our team move on to new posts in other areas or where we create new opportunities to better meet our children.

Our children want to work with staff who inspire and motivate them, who care about them as individuals and who want them to be the best they can be. Our staff want to work with colleagues who are positive and proactive team players; use their initiative and are effective problem solvers; share their good practice and ideas; smile and laugh!

We believe that informal visits to the school prior to application are important and will be warmly welcomed – please contact Rebecca King, our School Business Manager, by phone or email to arrange this. We look forward to meeting you!

Vacancies are published here, advertised locally on the LCC website and sometimes nationally.

Application forms will be available on the job advertisement link page.
