Lancing College stands in an impressive downland estate of several hundred acres, which includes playing fields, residential properties, and an educational farm. It is a stunningly beautiful place to work.
Lancing College is a friendly, ethical, vibrant and outward-looking place to work. We act with integrity and treat each other with respect, valuing diversity and rejecting discrimination. We are fully committed to creating and promoting a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects both our local community and our cosmopolitan student body. Applications are welcome from all suitably qualified candidates regardless of ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender, age or disability. We particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups.
The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Any offer of employment will be subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure which the School considers satisfactory, the receipt of satisfactory references, the school’s pre-employment medical questionnaire and sight of relevant original ID documentation and degree certificate(s). Applicants who have lived outside of the UK in the past 10 years will be required to provide a Police Check from their country of residence. In addition, and where applicable, successful candidates will be required to produce a ‘letter of professional standing’ issued by the relevant professional regulatory authority as proof of past conduct.
Lancing College conducts online searches for shortlisted candidates. This check is undertaken based on the requirements set out in Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022. The check helps us to ensure safe and robust checks on the suitability of individuals to work within our School. To minimise unconscious bias or potential discrimination issues, a person who will not be on the appointed interview panel will conduct the search and will only share information if and when findings are of a concern. The appointed panel may explore any concerns passed to them as part of our due diligence process.
The College is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and therefore all convictions, cautions, reprimands and final warnings (including those which would normally be considered "spent" under the Act) must be declared. If you have a criminal record this will not automatically debar you from employment. Instead, each case will be assessed fairly by reference to the School's objective assessment.

Unfortunately, due to the large number of applications received, the College is unable to acknowledge every application. The College will only notify those candidates who have been successfully shortlisted for interview. Therefore, if applicants have not had a reply from the school within 21 days of the closing date, they can assume that their application has been unsuccessful.
