The governors, staff and students of Thrybergh Academy are looking to appoint an outstanding and committed professional to join our vibrant, growing Through School.


Thrybergh Academy is Rotherham’s only Through School, situated on both the Foljambe Primary Campus and the Thrybergh Secondary Campus. Our aim is to provide an outstanding seamless education to students from 3 -16. We believe strongly in providing our students with nothing less than the best provision in order to equip them for a successful future ahead.


As a Cover Tutor you will provide support and classroom cover to the school teaching staff on the Thrybergh Secondary site in all curriculum areas.  You will supervise classes and ensure good behaviour and learning in the absence of a teacher.  Although following lesson plans and using the work set by the class teacher you will also be required to work autonomously with minimal supervision. Further training and support in the role will be available although previous experience of working within a school environment would be an advantage. Previous Cover Tutors have gone on to attain QTS and full-time teaching roles at our Academy. If you are a dynamic, charismatic individual who can enthuse a group of young people we would like to hear from you.

  • Is an enthusiastic, self-motivated, flexible and caring person
  • Has experience in a school environment working with children and relevant qualifications
  • Is confident when dealing with classroom situations
  • Has good literacy and numeracy skills 

Thrybergh Academy can offer you:

  • Ambitious, hard working and supportive colleagues
  • Kind, creative and passionate students
  • A safe, secure and caring environment
  • High quality joint practice development
  • Free gym membership at our on-site Sports Centre


Your main roles and responsibilities will include:

  • Covering lessons as and when required
  • Supporting the teaching and learning within the setting
  • Promoting an effective environment which facilitates learning and being committed to optimising opportunities for our students
  • Attending team meetings when required

You are warmly welcomed and encouraged to visit in order to meet our leaders, staff and students. Please arrange these visits with Jill Leaning on 01709 850471 or via email on
