Welcome to our recruitment pages.
The Trafalgar School is situated in the picturesque, historic village of Downton on the edge of the New Forest, between Fordingbridge to the South and Salisbury to the North. Our school community is made up of approximately 780 students and 90 colleagues.
We are ambitious for our students, but we are also ambitious for our employees.
We are fortunate to have outstanding, forward-thinking staff, who continually develop their practice and empower our young people to be the source of their own success. We encourage our staff to embrace their continuous professional development, which we provide plenty of opportunities for. As a community we celebrate everyone's individuality, talents and potential.

We work hard to create a culture where different perspectives are valued and our staff feel valued for their individuality and share a sense of belonging.
All candidates should note that appointments may afford the exciting opportunity to work in more than one school within The Magna Learning Partnership, as the need arises. Your interest and readiness for this will be questioned at interview.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All appointments will be conditional on a successful pre-employment and enhanced DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) check. All applicants must have the right to work in the UK.
