Wigston Academies Trust is looking for a dedicated individual to provide tailored classroom support to our students. You will be committed to making a positive difference to young people’s lives, supporting and developing their learning. Your intervention will help enable an outstanding learning environment for our young people, helping them achieve their full potential.
The successful candidate will be a committed team player, with excellent organisational and communication skills. They will have the ability to effectively support learning and teaching, and to develop relationships across our school and the Wigston Academy Trust.

Do you want to join us? You will come to a school full of sparky, creative and intelligent
students. You will find a capable and experienced team of adults that support children’s learning and who are very proud that OFSTED rates our pastoral care as a strength of our schools. We have one non-negotiable: you must be passionate about the care, happiness and learning of the children you’ll work with. It is also vitally important that you bring a sense of humour.
Wigston Academies Trust is a Trust formed of two schools and a pre-school: Wigston
Academy (11-16), Wigston College (16-19) and Tiger Tots, led by one Headteacher and an Executive Headteacher based in the Leicestershire town of Wigston. OFSTED rates the behaviour of our children, as well as our leadership and management, as good not just at the Academy but also at the College and in our pre-school too.
Come and have a look round – we’d love to meet you.
