Starting asap, and based at our Prep School site (ages 2-11), the Junior Technician is a one year post and would suit someone on an IT based degree course, or someone recently qualified. Offering IT support to teaching, admin and senior staff alongside preparation for lessons and events.

This is a full-time position mainly based at St Margaret's School, it will include some time at our senior school St Mary's which is situated on the same site, thus ensuring that the IT support is consistent across both. This will have the added advantage of allowing a broader experience of working in the educational sector. Accommodation is offered for this position if required.

It will be essential to have someone in post by September, however, an earlier start would be advantageous for training prior to the start of term.

The School

St Margaret's Prep is a co-educational day school for 180 pupils aged 3-11. We have a Kindergarten, Reception and Year 1 class and thereafter, two parallel classes at each year from Year 2 - Year 6. The school shares a 27-acre campus with St Mary's, Calne. The school broadly follows the 2014 Primary National Curriculum in England; the children are assessed in line with national expectations and the Foundation Stage Profile, and take standardized tests from Y2-Y6, achieving well above the national averages.

However, there is much more on offer. In addition to the academic side of life, there is a rich programme of Music, Sport, Drama and Art. Class Teachers deliver a broad curriculum with Computing, Sport, Music, Art, MFL and Latin being taught by specialists. We want our pupils to achieve their potential in every aspect and play a full part in the life of the school. Above all, we want happy, independent and confident children! The facilities offer first class opportunities to challenge and stimulate the children in their learning. Classes are housed in attractive purpose built teaching rooms linked to the original Victorian building. There are specialist-teaching rooms for Computing, Music, Languages and Art/Design & Technology, whilst The Southwell Hall offers a large space for assemblies, drama and a wide range of extra-curricular activities.

In addition, we share a number of facilities with St Mary's; a dining room, Chapel, Science laboratories, an indoor swimming pool, gymnasium and a range of sports courts and playing fields. Our after-school club 'Maggots' provides wrap-around care until 6pm. The children enjoy the benefit of fresh air and exercise in an extensive, secure environment, which includes fields, playgrounds, swings and other play equipment. Maintaining a happy, purposeful atmosphere is of paramount importance, as this will allow the pupils the best opportunity to develop into well-rounded, confident children. It is vital that the pupils and the staff at St Margaret's feel that their lives here are enriched and rewarding.
