  • when needed.
  • Creating a safe and positive classroom environment.
  • Promoting good behaviour in line with the school behaviour policy.
  • Providing TA support when not being used as cover.

We want to hear from you if you have an interest in teaching or have had previous experience as a Teaching Assistant, volunteer or youth leader with secondary aged children. The successful applicant will be a dynamic and enthusiastic individual who is able to make the significant contribution required to secure the very best outcomes for all students at The Bicester School. As part of our Induction Programme, full training will be given on our classroom procedures and protocols.

This is a responsible and rewarding role and can be a great steppingstone into teaching career.
