We hope that you get a sense of the passion and energy here at Hovingham, our vision is a simple one ‘to give our children the best experiences we can’, it is this purpose which motivates everything we do at Hovingham.

At Hovingham our values permeate through everything we do, they are our guide, which makes Hovingham a special place to work. Many visitors comment on the ‘feel’ of Hovingham; welcoming, warm, where relationships are valued and nurtured.

There are many wonderful aspects to working at Hovingham, but one which I feel incredibly privileged to be part of is the team of dedicated, vibrant, diverse and caring people who are all willing to go the extra mile, overcome challenges and strive for success for our children – the most important people in our school!

Although we are not where we want to be from a school improvement point of view, we are determined, proud and striving to be a great school.  One of our values is perseverance, we never give up, we remain positive so that we have the strength to persevere with even the hardest work. We do what it takes for as long as it takes!

We are looking for teachers who can continue to take our school forward and be part of something extraordinary. To be part of Team Hovingham, you need a sense of humour, passion, energy, and drive – the rest Team Hovingham will immerse you in!
