Current Vacancies at St. Mike’s

With a dedicated and hardworking staff, St. Michael’s School is one of Wales’ leading Independent Schools. Through high quality teaching, continuous assessment and regular examinations we are quickly able to identify pupils’ strengths. Small class sizes ensure that learning is tailored to the individual and that they are academically challenged throughout their school life.  We aim to create an environment where pupils feel cared for and respected. We nurture and support our children to develop confidence in their own abilities ensuring each child reaches their full potential.  We successfully combine traditional methods with a broad and well balanced curriculum, designed to enthuse and inspire our pupils, whilst aiming to challenge each child’s natural desire to learn.  See our Ethos and Aims page for more about our school culture.  By working for us, you are also joining part of a wider group of schools, we belong to CATS Global Schools.


Current Vacancies

We use the “eTeach” website to manage the application stage of the recruitment process for all jobs in school, for both non-teaching and teaching roles.  Full details of any vacancies can be found here >>

Please note: We can only consider applications where our Application Form is completed in full and submitted via the eTeach portal.  You can download the form by visiting the eTeach website, along with any Candidate Information Packs.

St. Michael’s School expects all applicants and candidates for any role with us to undergo appointment screening, as part of our Safer Recruitment Policy.  This policy is available on request and can also be read by candidates at the point of application.  It has due regard to the Welsh Government statutory guidance “Keeping Learners Safe” which is available online and provides guidance on the ideal recruitment process to ensure safeguarding principles are upheld and unsuitable people are prevented from working with children.  It also draws content from the predecessor to “Keeping Learners Safe” which was 34/02 “Child Protection: Preventing Unsuitable People from Working with Children and Young Persons in the Education Service” given the usefulness and value of some of the information there. Key principles of this process are:

  • CVs are not accepted as a method of application, though you are welcome to provide one, but it is not essential.  We have a standard application form and all gaps between employment, whether for study or any other reason, must be detailed.  You must also complete a criminal record declaration.  Questions will be asked about any gaps in employment or criminal convictions at interview.
  • Written references, one of whom must be your current or most recent employer, will be sought prior to interview.  We will take steps to verify references where necessary.
  • Where qualifications are relevant to the role or required, we will take steps to verify these and original certificates must be provided.
  • An Enhanced DBS Disclosure (including Barred List Check) will be required prior to appointment for all roles, therefore you should ensure that you have suitable Photo ID available, original proofs of address and any other documents requested as part of the DBS application process.
  • Employment can only commence once all the relevant conditions have been met.  Failure to provide accurate information during the process or non disclosure of relevant/required information could result in a job offer being withdrawn or later dismissal from a post, therefore care should be taken in this regard.
  • Before commencing employment you will be required to read and understand our Staff Code of Conduct and Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy which is applicable to all members of staff, regardless of their role or responsibilities.  At appointment, all new employees will also complete an online module in safeguarding as part of the documented induction process.  Ongoing training will then be provided throughout employment.
