We wish to appoint a highly motivated and hard-working cleaner to join an already very successful team. Over the last three years we have assembled an excellent group of senior leaders, teachers and support staff who are having a significant impact on the quality of provision at the school.  With an aspirational culture, and a commitment to evidence informed teaching, we want to achieve more.

Framwellgate School Durham is an 11-18 non-selective secondary school and Single Academy Trust.  The school roll has increased by 35% in three years and in September 2020 we were oversubscribed with more than 1300 students on roll.

The successful candidate will possess energy and enthusiasm, and a willingness to work hard, use initiative and work as part of a team are all essential.  We can offer you an environment where student behaviour is excellent, prior attainment levels are amongst the highest in the North-East, and our students and staff are a pleasure to work with. With over 20 new teachers, including a number of NQTs, and a number of support staff appointed over the last two years, we have quickly become a vibrant and exciting school in which to work.
