About the Post

We are looking to appoint 3 flexible and enthusiastic Teaching Assistants to join our expert team of Teaching Assistants in this 7 – 11 Junior School. 

Christchurch Junior School is a large, popular community school, which caters for over 500 children aged between 7 and 11 years. The children spend four years here. The classes are organised in year groups hosting four classes each. We welcome children from all walks of life, all faiths and all abilities. The children enjoy excellent facilities in purpose built premises, which were constructed in 2001. Our facilities include a well-stocked Library and specialist teaching areas for Music and Computing. In 2010, our playing field was refurbished to a high standard. In 2011 we opened Old Building, purpose built accommodation for serving hot meals which also provides additional teaching and learning space with a suite of Music rooms. We take pride in our school’s support for music and sport, and our playing field has recently been enhanced by a non-turf cricket pitch. The school is a member of the Christchurch Learning Partnership of schools that work closely together to ensure high quality provision for all local school children


We are a member of Twynham Learning - an exciting multi-academy trust of ambitious infant, junior and secondary schools serving the local community. Its aim is to offer this generation of children, young people and those involved in their education the very best leadership, teaching and learning, professional development and support services.
