School Secretaries (February 2015)
We have vacancies for one full-time and one part-time Secretary
Closing Date for Applications: Monday 5th January 2015 (NB: original deadline has been extended)
The main core elements of these roles will be secretarial to fill the two School Secretary positions. However, as part of the remit for either role, we are also looking for a candidate who may have a background in Marketing/PR; taking on some responsibility of establishing links with local and national press/publications to ensure our successes as a school are shared with our local community and wider audiences.
If you have the relevant skills and experience to take on the role of a School Secretary and/or the ability to further strategically plan the school's commitment to communicate through marketing (whether this is incorporated into the full-time or the part-time role is negotiable) we would love to hear from you by receiving your completed application form.
Head of Drama (September 2015)
Candidates for this position will also be expected to offer some further teaching in another subject, particularly English, but other subjects will be considered. Contribution to the extra curricular and/or sporting programmes will be expected.
Each year, Westbourne supports specific charities; usually an international, national and local organisation, which are chosen by the children.
Last year (2013-14) we raised an amazing £80,000 for charity! This sum includes money raised for our four school charities - St Wilfrid's Hospice, Friends of Aldingbourne Trust, School in a Bag and Macmilan Cancer Care - as well as money raised for Children in Need, the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and Movember. Wow! That is a new record and something for the school community to feel very proud about.
This year (2014-15) we are supporting one local, one national and one international charity:
- Parents & Carers Support Organisation (www.pacso.org.uk) - provides a wide variety of fun and inclusive play activities for disabled children and their siblings, giving respite care for their parents and carers in West Sussex.
- Dwarf Sports Association UK (www.dsauk.org) - to make regular sporting opportunities accessible and enjoyable to anyone and everyone of restricted growth in the United Kingdom.
- War Child (www.warchild.org.uk) - provides life-changing support to children whose families, communities and schools have been torn apart by war.
