Thank you for your interest in this role. This is an exciting opportunity to join Oaks Park High Post 16 as a learning mentor and work under the direct instruction of teaching/senior staff in order to support students’ learning.

‘The school is ambitious for all pupils, including those with SEND. It has designed a curriculum that sets out high academic expectations’

‘Teachers have strong subject knowledge. This is reflected in their high-quality explanations of subject content’

‘Pupils are respectful and polite. They understand the school’s expectations in terms of conduct and behaviour’

‘Staff know their pupils well, and they build positive relationships with them’

The school is an increasingly popular choice within the local community and we are delighted to advertise this role due to an expansion within the school and a larger intake of students in September 2024.
