Hampton College is an established, successful, all-through school, which formed its own multi-academy trust (Hampton Academies Trust- HAT) in 2014. The Trust is also the education provider for the new neighbouring secondary school, Hampton Gardens School and Hampton Lakes Primary School, which is due to open in 2019. HAT schools have very close links and some shared staff.

Hampton College currently serves the community of Hampton, on the southern outskirts of the city of Peterborough and has good links to Cambridge and Stamford.  Hampton Gardens School serves the neighbouring Cambridgeshire village of Yaxley, as well new housing being added to the Hampton East development, where Hampton Lakes Primary School will also be located.

Required September 2019


 We are looking for a flexible and hardworking individual who is keen to play an active role in providing a full caretaking service to the college. With support and guidance from the Trust Site Manager you will be able to work on your own initiative and as part of the site team. You should have some hands on experience working in a similar field and will need to be adaptable and able to respond to changes in working practices, with a willingness to ‘go that extra mile’ and respond to reasonable requests that go beyond normal routine. You will possess good interpersonal skills and be able to deal confidently with staff, students, parents and visitors.

This is a permanent position based at Hampton College working 37 hours per week (Mon-Fri), 52 weeks per year. The salary scale for the post is Grade 5 – £18,795 to £19,554 per annum.

The working hours will fall between the core hours of school opening (6.45am) and closing (7.00pm), Monday to Friday. However, there will be a requirement for some evening work until 9.30pm when school events and meetings take place. Working hours will be on a rotation basis with other members of the team, to meet the needs of the school.

The position is full time, 52 weeks per year. It is expected that the post-holder will take their annual leave entitlement during the school holiday periods.

 What we can offer you in return:

  • A fantastic working environment where students are enthusiastic and want to learn. All our schools have modern buildings, with light and airy classrooms, outstanding facilities and are situated at the heart of the community.
  • We value our staff and recognize the importance of providing ongoing training opportunities. As a growing Trust we are also able to offer opportunities for promotion and fresh challenges as new roles arise regularly within the Trust.
  • Our active Staff Wellbeing Group creates an effective channel for staff to be heard, and underpins our commitment to cultivating a supportive working environment which allows staff to flourish and achieve their full potential.
  • Our extensive induction programme supports staff every step of the way, and our buddy system gives new staff a supportive and knowledgeable mentor.
  • Full access to the Health Assured Employee Assistance Programme which is designed to help staff deal with any personal or professional problems. Staff have access to free legal advice, medical information, counselling sessions, online self-help tools, factsheets and the wellbeing portal.
