We are looking for an excellent ECT (previously NQT) teacher to be part of our team.

Do you have these Super Qualities?

Do you share our vision?


The children are very proud of our school’s unique qualities and character. They will tell you all about our diverse community and being part of Brighton City Centre community life. We are a welcoming place that has been celebrated in the newspapers and on the TV but most of all the children will tell you that Fairlight is a creative environment that is a great place to learn and is a fun place to be. As a diverse and experienced staff we feel we could offer excellent support for a teacher who is starting out in their career. Find out more about all of the exciting things going on at the school on our website www.fairlight.brighton-hove.sch.uk. You will be amazed and hopefully so impressed that you will come and visit the school and apply for the post.

We enclose a recruitment pack containing all the relevant information you will need to make your application:- Job description, Person specification/ Application form.   This is the current NQT pack which may be subject to change once the ECT guidance has been published.

The criteria that is found within the person specification describes the essential skills, ability, experience and qualification needed in order to carry out the duties of the post. Your statement on this is therefore very important as it is your opportunity to demonstrate these skills. Use the person specification criteria as headings when writing your statement and where applicable, give examples of situations when you have used the skills and attributes detailed. This can be in bullet-point form or prose, but should be no longer than 2 sides of A4 paper. It is very important that your application is in the format requested as candidates will be short-listed on the person specification criteria alone.

The closing date for applications is noon 5th June 2022. Please send your completed application form directly to the school at the above address or, by email to office@fairlight.brighton-hove.sch.uk.

Tours of the school are highly recommended. Please contact the school office (01273 601270) to arrange a visit by appointment on either 25th or 26th May 2022.

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 14th June 2022. Due to the expected large number of applications to work at our excellent school if you have not heard back from us by 8th June 2022 you can assume that you application was not successful at this time.

Thank you once again for the interest you have shown in this post and we look forward to hearing from you.


Yours sincerely

Mr Damien Jordan
