Truro School pupil numbers are strong and we are looking for additional professional, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and passionate staff to join our community and help us deliver excellent learning and teaching to our pupils in an effective and efficient operational environment. We are committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best people in their fields and those who are committed to our educational philosophy to promote inclusive excellence, academically, pastorally and via our vibrant co-curriculum.

Truro School is steeped in 140 years of history, and is Cornwall’s leading coeducational independent school for children aged 3-18. We are situated over two campuses. The Senior School educates around 840 pupils and is set within 40 acres of sports fields and open spaces overlooking Truro and its iconic Cathedral. The Prep School educates around 300 pupils and is located next to the Royal Cornwall Hospital. We have superb facilities and resources at both sites that support our forward-looking educational ambitions.

We employ more than 120 teachers and 230 non-teachers (full time and part time) all of which are proud to be part of the strong community that we have built here and of the excitement and development we offer both children and staff that join us. We are genuinely a supportive and caring school and we are encouraged to engage, provide and grasp all opportunities that are presented to us.

Truro School recognises the outstanding people we have, both teaching and non-teaching, and rewards them with great value benefits including free lunch each day, shopping vouchers and discounts via our Employee Benefits platform, free use of our swimming pool and fitness suite and pension – to name but a few.

Since November 2020, changes have been made to the DBS filtering regime meaning that potential candidates, may or may not, be required to disclose certain previous cautions, reprimands, final warnings, or convictions when applying for roles. As an employer it is our duty to signpost where you can obtain assistance in deciding what needs to be disclosed to us.

Caretaker (Truro School Prep)

25 hours pw / Term Time Only (+4 weeks to be worked in the school holidays)
£10.50 ph, or a salary of £11,445pa, based on an fte of 0.559. The full-time equivalent salary is £20,475pa.
Start Date: January 2023

As an integral and key member of the School caretaking team, this role will be responsible for managing access to the Prep school, conducting minor maintenance and grounds works, preparing the schools for events, ensuring the schools are kept in a clean, tidy and safe condition and maintaining security. This role requires flexibility in terms of providing cover during the school week and also the ability to flex shifts in order to provide holiday cover for the other Caretakers.

This role is based on a 4 week rotational shift pattern:

Caretaker 1
Week 1 – Late
Week 2 – Day
Week 3 – Day
Week 4 – Early

The timings for the work in school holidays will differ from this and will be agreed on a case by case/holiday by holiday basis.  There will also be a requirement for Saturday work to support external hires. This will be done by the Caretaker on the Day shift that week, and a day off is given during the week to compensate so they will still work 5 x 5-hour shifts per week.

In addition to a competitive salary, we are committed to the wellbeing and development of all our staff, promoting continuous professional development and training, free lunch and refreshments, a supportive place to work, pension, staff discount and membership of the superb Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre.
