    Staff Vacancies

    Geography lesson at Kimbolton SchoolWe are committed to recruiting, developing and retaining high calibre teaching and non-teaching staff for our outstanding HMC school.  All our staff, regardless of role, play an important part in the provision of our first-class education. We employ teachers who are conscientious, imaginative and committed to educating the whole person.  Our continuous professional development scheme provides all academic staff with an opportunity to reflect on their practice and continue to develop their teaching and pastoral skills to the benefit of all pupils. We expect teachers to be fully involved in the extra-curricular life of our school too, encouraging pupils in their wider development through music, sport, drama, art, CCF, clubs, societies and trips.  Sometimes these are out-of-hours, at weekends or during school holidays.  Our non-teaching staff fill a wide variety of roles, both part- and full-time and some of them term-time only.  They are very much part of our wider team and contribute to, and benefit from, the happy and positive feel of our school.

    The School recognises that an important element in safeguarding our pupils is a robust recruitment process that incorporates measures to deter, reject, or identify people who might abuse children, or who are otherwise unsuited to work with them.  In addition, recent government guidance, “Safeguarding Children – Keeping Children Safe in Education Sept 2020, specifically Part 3”, as well as specific guidance from the National Minimum Standards for Boarding Schools, help to form the basis of school policy. For further information about Kimbolton School's commitment to Safer Recruitment, please visit our Policies page to read our Safe Recruitment Policy.
