We are really fortunate that staff generally stay at Gawsworth Primary School for a large proportion of their careers so that teacher and support staff vacancies are therefore few and far between.

From time to time, however, vacancies do arise as staff gain promotion or move to different places in their careers. If you are interested in working at Gawsworth Primary School and for the Fallibroome Trust, keep an eye out for vacancies on this page and for teaching vacancies, visit the Cheshire East Council site.
