King James's School


King James's School is a fantastic place to work. In November 2019, Ofsted noted that, "The school is a caring place in which pupils feel safe and secure. Pupils, parents and carers told us about the family atmosphere in the school. We agree."

If you are looking to work in a school that places equal emphasis on providing first-class pastoral care alongside outstanding teaching, and also puts staff well-being and professional development at the centre of its practice, then King James's School might be the place for you.


Working at KJS

We benefit from a low turnover of staff, which perhaps reflects what colleagues feel it is like to work with us.

If you wonder what it might be like to work here, you can read about how we recognise and support our staff on our Working at KJS page.
