Blacon High School – More than a school

For September 2023, we are pursuing a Student Support Co-ordinator to provide pastoral support to students across Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. The successful candidate will have responsibilities for supporting individuals around social and emotional issues and removing barriers to progress.

The person we are looking for will be a positive role model and enthusiastic team player with excellent communication skills and have the ability to motivate others.

This is an exciting opportunity for the right person to make a significant change to the lives of some of our learners. A background in academic mentoring, welfare work or mentoring with young people would be helpful but key is the ability to listen, to have compassion and to form positive relationships that will help students to meet their full academic potential.

Blacon High School prides itself on being relentless in its desire to provide outstanding learning opportunities, and the successful candidate will join a well-established team. In September 2016 we moved into a new building; a further extension was completed in September 2021 due to the school being oversubscribed for the 4th year, enabling the school to grow from 600 to 750 students.
