QEGSMAT are seeking to appoint two Level 2 Teaching Assistants, to join our hardworking and high achieving team at Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School. This is an opportunity to work in an experienced department within the academy.


Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School is an 11-18 Comprehensive School in the picturesque town of Ashbourne.  The school enjoys an excellent reputation within the local community.  Academic standards are already very high in all key stages, but we are not complacent and continually seek to expand and improve upon opportunities afforded to our students.


Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School is a proud member of QEGSMAT. The Trust’s values are for students to ‘Question, Explore; Give; and Succeed’. Our exceptional staff, strong leadership, motivated children, as well as excellent facilities, provide the successful formula for this.


At QEGSMAT we believe and promote that exceptional workforce creates exceptional results; they transform lives and transform futures. We support every pupil to achieve their full potential and become a confident, resilient, and compassionate individual who can make a positive contribution to society.


Why work for us?


  • Continual access to CPD opportunities. QEGSMAT works with a large number of organisations to develop staff to fulfil their aspirations and potential. We are committed to providing first-rate training and development to all our staff within this evolving Trust.
  • We are committed to promoting equality, challenging discrimination, and developing community cohesion. We welcome applications from all sections of the community.
  • All staff have access to our Employee Assistance Programme which provides confidential, independent and unbiased information and guidance 24/7. This can also include bespoke counselling sessions for staff if needed.
  • All roles are subject to nationally agreed terms and conditions of service.
  • Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) with employer contributions of 23.68% for support staff.
  • Family-friendly policies.
  • Access to Flu Vaccines.
  • Opportunity to work flexibly


QEGSMAT is also committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All appointments are subject to an Enhanced DBS check and be eligible to work in the UK.
