Portchester Community School is a medium-sized, forward thinking 11-16 Community School and enjoys a good reputation locally.
We are a 'good' school and are very proud of our pupils and their achievements.
Within the school we have a resourced provision for physically disabled students who are integrated fully into the life of the school, which brings a richness and variety to the curriculum and adds to our extensive after school provision. As a community school we also have a nursery and a pre-school on site, and we are the providers of elderly day care.
The school also continues to pride itself on its caring ethos and is widely recognised for its Rights, Respect and Responsibility (RRP) work. Our community engagement work has been a powerful vehicle at the school for promoting positive relationships and cultural awareness. Many students have had exceptional opportunities to travel and engage on new and exciting experiences both in the UK and abroad.
We currently have no vacancies:

We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment. All candidates will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service check as well as other relevant pre-employment checks.

These posts are covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 because they are posts which involve working directly with children or young people. Applicants are therefore required to declare any criminal convictions (or cautions or bind-overs) including those which are “spent”. The amendments to the Exception Order 1975 (2013) provide that certain spent convictions and cautions are protected and are not subject to disclosure. Please refer to the Disclosure and Barring service website for further information on the filtering of these cautions and convictions.
