Current vacancies

Care Assistant: Secondary

  • Heyford Park Free School is located at the heart of Heyford Park in Oxfordshire – the site of a former RAF and US Air Force base – and reflects the strong community spirit we have here at Heyford Park.
    It is our aim to know every one of our students well, providing an environment that not only allows them to achieve what they are truly capable of, but also equips them with excellent academic qualifications and a ‘can do’ attitude. We want our students to be able to create the right pathway for themselves while making a meaningful contribution to their communities.
  • Are you passionate about nurturing individuals?  Do you want to work in a community school that knows each one of its children and their families well and where we can watch children progress from Nursery to sixth form?  Do you want to get to know children as individuals, understanding their needs, supporting them and providing the best environment in which they can thrive?
