Our school has a unique and exceptional atmosphere, providing a happy, caring and creative environment and a curriculum which inspires, engages and challenges our learners. We affirm the close relationship of home, church and school. Our curriculum policies and procedures have been developed from discussions about how to achieve our school vision that ‘each child will see themselves as God the Father sees them’, and for our children to dream big dreams and be the very best they can be!
Our head teacher will manage the day to day running of the school to the benefit of our pupils and families, ensuring all children flourish and achieve their full potential. Although fee paying, our aim has been that school fees are kept at an affordable level.
Membership of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme will be essential on taking up appointment along with GTCS Registration (Primary).

Working at the Abbey Centre is a rewarding and creative experience, and whilst the work can, at times, be demanding many past staff and volunteers have described the experience as “life changing”, with rich encounter, deep learning, life-long friendships and new directions being formed. Our staffing model comprises a resident community of staff and volunteers, who are mutually accountable to each other, and share a common life of work and worship, both of which are valued in equal measure. Recognising the pressures this brings, we provide a range of supports including comprehensive training, a spiritual accompaniment scheme, an employee assistance programme and regular space for reflection and feedback.
This is an exciting time for the Iona Community, with a unique opportunity for the new team of Abbey staff and volunteers to re-establish the Centre as a vital place of welcome, encounter and challenge, enriching the lives of many, and bringing hope to the world.
The main purpose of the role of the Deputy Housekeeper is to support the Housekeeper in ensuring the Abbey and Welcome Centre are cleaned and maintained to a high standard, thus playing a key part in allowing all those who live, stay and visit to have a rich experience of welcome and hospitality.
