from Nursery to Sixth Form

Exam Invigilator

We are seeking several calm and supportive Exam Invigilators working at our Senior Boys, Girls or Sixth Form. The role is seasonal and required at the following times of the year:

  • Summer Session:  May to end of June
  • Mock Exam Session – varies according to need
  • January External Exams – First two weeks in January
  • Other times according to Exam Requirements for Practicals etc.

Exam invigilators work as part of a team and play a key role in upholding the integrity of the examination/assessment process. Experience is not required, as training will be provided, although applicants will be asked to declare if they have invigilated previously and whether they have any current maladministration/malpractice sanctions applied to them.

To be successful in this role, you must:-

  • Want to work in a school environment
  • Be aware of and act on individual student's needs
  • Be supportive and patient
  • Be organised and comfortable giving clear instructions
  • Committed to the protection and safeguarding of children and young people
  • Engaged with the School's ethos

In return, we offer a positive working environment, with supportive colleagues.


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and applicants must be willing to undergo Child Protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

In addition to an assessment of their ability to perform the duties of the post applied for, candidates invited to attend for interview should expect further discussion relating to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.


In accordance with our Recruitment of Ex-offenders Policy, you are advised that all posts within the School will have the opportunity for unsupervised contact with children and therefore all shortlisted candidates will be required to complete a self-declaration form to declare any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings that are not “protected” as defined by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (as amended in 2013).  This is regardless of whether any such convictions, caution, reprimand or final warning is considered ‘spent’ or ‘unspent’. 

The amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975 (2013) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are “protected” and not subject to disclosure to employers and cannot be taken into account.  Guidance and criteria on the filtering of these cautions and convictions can be found on the Disclosure and Barring Service websiteHaving a criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us: this will depend on the nature of the position and the circumstances and background of your offence(s).


To apply, please download an application form from our website.  Please post completed forms to the following address:-
