GEMS Didcot Primary is a popular, ambitious and successful multicultural primary school, with a nursery, that opened in September 2016.  The school currently has 220 pupils (from nursery to Year 3) and will grow by 60 reception pupils a year until the school reaches maximum capacity of 420 in 2020.  We are very proud of the school that we are creating and are looking to expand our team.


GEMS Learning trust has been established to offer all children in our academies a first class education.  It has high expectations of everyone in the school community and challenges children to succeed while supporting them every step of the way.  Currently GEMS Learning Trust has two academies with a third due to open in 2019.


We are looking for a talented Key Stage One teacher to join our team to teach in either Year 1 or 2 and an English lead to teach our Year 4 class and lead English across the school.
