Willingdon Community School is a mixed 11-16, mixed, comprehensive, Leading Edge school, which serves a suburban/rural catchment area on the edge of Eastbourne.

Whilst the focus of the school is on high performance in all academic subjects, we have a specialism in the media and visual arts and are a Gifted & Talented Lead School.

The school is regularly over-subscribed, with 976 students on roll. School buses provide transport for over 250 students from Stone Cross, Pevensey, Westham and Langney areas of Eastbourne. We take students from approximately 15 different primary and private schools from across the area, with the majority coming from Willingdon, Polegate, Stone Cross, Pevensey & Westham and Hankham primary schools. We have a particularly close working relationship with Polegate and Willingdon primary schools, with whom we have formed a collaborative partnership aimed at developing the quality of transition to secondary school. Initiatives developed through this collaboration also benefit students joining us from other schools.

We are one of seven secondary schools in the area which work very closely together on a range of joint projects and strategies, having formed, with the local FE College (Sussex Downs College), a 14-19 federation. Working collaboratively, the schools and college have developed a number of flexible curriculum offers, strategies to support the development of good behaviour, improved transition to college at 16, staff development programmes and a range of other joint initiatives. Willingdon has taken a prominent role in leading on many of these, to the benefit of all schools locally. As a Leading Edge school, working together with local schools is very much at the heart of our work.

A full time Digital Media Technician is required to provide a technical support for all aspects of digital media production, Apple Mac computers, i0S devices and general media equipment throughout the school and ensure equipment is maintained to a high standard to support student learning. A working knowledge of Apple OSX and i0S devices is essential and previous experience of maintaining equipment in a similar role in education or industry is desirable but not essential. The willingness and ability to be a pro-active, inspirational team player is essential to this role.
