We are seeking to appoint a Cover Supervisor to supervise planned lessons for teaching colleagues in their absence, and provide in-class learning support within an identified curriculum area.  The successful candidate will focus relentlessly upon giving students opportunities for success both within and beyond the classroom as well as providing stimulating and engaging learning experiences.

Working at King James I Academy will provide the opportunity to join a dedicated team of staff whose mission is to become an outstanding Academy that develops successful, well rounded, socially mobile and confident young people who can contribute effectively to the global community.  

After another year of good results we are building upon our success in 2023/4.  Students and staff alike are working hard to ensure that our students achieve their best possible outcomes.

Our excellent teaching and support staff help students to achieve positive progress and to follow a varied and challenging curriculum.  Students in our Sixth Form in 2023 achieved very strong outcomes and all have now moved on to University, Training or employment.

Our success has attracted an ever increasing number of students to our school and we have, once again, received more applications for places for our new Year 7 cohort in September 2023 than we have places.


Closing Date: 12:00pm on Monday 09 October          

Interview Date:  TBC
