We are seeking to appoint a person to oversee pupil study when a teacher is unavailable due to courses, trips, sickness or other absence.  The successful candidate should have a good sense of discipline and a non-confrontational manner. This is an ideal role for someone looking to gain experience before pursuing teaching as a career.  Cover supervisors work with pupils but will not be required to do preparation, planning or marking.

Previous cover supervisors have gone on to train as teachers through our teaching school and are now full time teachers within the Coombe Academy Trust.

Coombe Boys’ is a popular and highly successful non-selective 11 – 18 school that is federated with its partner girls’ school, a national Teaching School, to comprise the Coombe Academy Trust, based in New Malden, Surrey.  Coombe Boys’ has approximately 900 students on roll, including a mixed sixth form.

Results at GCSE and in the Sixth Form are significantly above national averages and the School was graded Good with Outstanding Leadership & Management in its most recent Ofsted inspection (March 2018).
