Support staff at Monkton carry out a range of vital and valued positions. The School’s ability to function and perform outstandingly well depends on the work our non-teaching staff do.

Monkton thinks differently and we encourage our people to be innovative and think creatively. We have recently launched an innovation fund where our people are able to reflect on possible areas of experimentation and apply for funding to follow their idea through. Some ideas we are championing are:

  • Developing a unique EYFS curriculum that is highly creative, uses rich and real resources/ experiences strong in STEM content.
  • Increasing the use of our outdoor spaces by offering new water-based activities like paddleboarding.

Graduate Teaching Assistants are seen as an important part of the Pastoral and Academic teams at Monkton.  This is an exciting opportunity to explore and gain experience of working with young people, from ages 13-18 years, in a supportive environment to allow you to decide if teaching or pastoral care is the right career path for you.

We pride ourselves on our lively Christian ethos, excellent exam results and our strong pastoral care. At Monkton, we are setting standards for life; giving young people the qualities of character they need.

So, if you strive to work collaboratively and want to actively get involved in the co-curricular, pastoral life of the school, then we think you will feel right at home here.

Previous GTAs have gone on to a variety of careers including (but not limited to) SCITT and PGCE courses, counselling or church leadership - the perfect springboard for many different types of careers. We have a number of previous GTAs who are still working with us here at Monkton in a variety of roles!
