A HLTA qualification is preferred but not essential, providing you have carried out the duties of a HLTA in your previous role, as the school are happy to support you in gaining this qualification whilst in the post.

The HLTA role is to start on 4th January 2022 working full time (8:15am-3:15pm), with a whole hour lunch break! This is a term time only role for the remainder of this academic year with the opportunity of a permanent appointment being offered.
