An exciting opportunity has arisen for a person (preferably) with experience of working with young people, with an ability to motivate and organise them well.

Founded in 1666 as the Blue Coat Hospital, today Sir Thomas Rich’s is a progressive grammar school for boys in Years 7 to 11, and young men and women in the sixth form. We are consistently one of the highest attaining schools in the county and we are proud of our long-standing reputation for academic and sporting excellence. GCSE results consistently come in the top 10% for attainment and value added in the country. Our students typically achieve ten or eleven GCSEs, mostly at the highest grades, and three or four A-levels, mostly at grades A*, A and B. The School attracts high-ability, talented students and offers a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities. We believe that students thrive in an atmosphere of respect, care and support.
Teachers and support staff work hard to promote this ethos and to make sure that every pupil feels that they are a valued member of the school community. High quality pastoral support is key to this aim, and we work closely with parents to develop positive relationships with families and help students achieve their full potential. Our accomplished staff use their skills to inspire, encourage and support our students in their journey through the School, laying firm foundations for academic excellence at GCSE, in our Sixth Form and beyond.
Located on the edge of the city of Gloucester in the heart of the south west, Sir Thomas Rich’s is just a short drive from Junction 11 of the M5.
