Tiverton High School is an innovative and successful school situated within easy reach of Exmoor and the North Devon coast. We have over 1200 students aged 11-16 on role and have a genuinely comprehensive intake. Our philosophy is grounded on the belief that ‘we are here to help children succeed: it’s that simple’.

You will be required to join a duty team one day a week and complete a break or lunchtime duty once a week.

Safeguarding children and young people is our priority and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check and references are required for this post.
