Finborough is an ambitious, friendly, highly successful independent school, which has recently been awarded excellent in all areas by the Independent School’s Inspectorate (ISI).
We take recruitment very seriously at Finborough and we are looking for dynamic individuals to join us.
If you want to work in an environment where no two days are the same; if you want to be part of a successful team and organisation; and if you want to make a difference to young people’s lives, we want to hear from you.
We know what kind of people we want and we work hard to recruit the best in the field. Alongside our Better Never Stops mantra there are certain attributes we look for when recruiting:
- Passion about what you do.
- The ability to think differently and come up with new ideas.
- And if you are a teacher, experience of life outside of education and the ability to inspire and engage with young people.
Following our rigorous recruitment process, and after we have made an appointment, we are committed to:
- Offering relevant training.
- Giving people the freedom to be themselves.
- Working hard and playing hard! If you can’t have fun in our environment, you never will!
Finborough School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and our proprietor, Mr James Sinclair, is recognised by the DFE as suitable to own, and therefore have overarching responsibility for, an independent school.
All applicants for employment at Finborough must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the position, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). All members of staff engaged in teaching in any form (including sports’ coaching) are checked to ensure that they are not prohibited from teaching by the DFE. In addition all staff who have management roles are checked to ensure they are not prohibited from such roles in education by the DFE (this includes staff who are promoted internally). We also make a check to ensure applicants are not disqualified by association. A copy of our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy is available in the policies and procedures area of our website.
