St Augustine’s is a Catholic secondary school of approximately 950 students situated in the west of the City of Edinburgh. Its catchment area encompasses five Catholic primary schools extending from South Queensferry in the north to Balerno in the south. However, as a result of parental choice, our current S1 contains students drawn from 31 primaries.

St Augustine’s stresses the importance of high levels of achievement for every student and there is a strong sense of community within the school. All staff of St Augustine’s, teaching and non-teaching, are prepared to make a positive contribution to the school as a whole and to play their part as members of the St Augustine’s community.

The post is in a busy school as part of the support staff for a variety of depts. Emphasis is on getting the best possible outcome for each of our students so an enjoyment of working in a High School setting while having excellent administration skills are welcome qualities for applicants.
