The Sele School is a rapidly growing secondary school. We are looking for a hard working individual who is excited to join a professional environment where excellence is the norm and who will seek to take up all the professional development opportunities the school has to offer.

We offer our staff a comprehensive CPD programme with opportunities to visit our partner schools such as The Perse School in Cambridge.
