At Sir Graham Balfour we offer:

•        A first rate learning environment. We are housed in buildings completed in 2002 and financed via a PFI initiative.

•        Innovative 14-19 collaboration and an increasing roll at KS5.

•        A commitment to inclusive practice.


Please note:

•        The school is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all students and as such all applicants will be submitted for an enhanced DBS check.

•        Applications can only be accepted if submitted on the enclosed formal application form.

•        Two references will be required, one of which must be from your most recent employer.

•        We confirm our commitment to equality of opportunity in all areas of our work. All individuals will be treated in a fair and equal manner and in accordance with the law regardless of gender, marital status, race, religion, colour, age, disability or sexual orientation.
