We are looking to appoint a hardworking, enthusiastic caretaker to join our amazing team. Someone who will care about our beautiful school and keep it safe for our delightful children and exceptional staff.

You will take charge of the cleaning and maintenance of our school and grounds. We need someone who is able to work under their own initiative, lead the small team of cleaners and take pride in keeping the school clean and safe for all users.

There will be occasions and events where the school will need to be opened/locked outside of the school day (for example when the school is used for events or when there is building work being completed over the holiday period).
