Wallands is a two form entry school in Lewes, only a short train ride from Eastbourne and Brighton. Wallands is set in a beautiful part of East Sussex, on the edge of the South Downs National Park, with wonderful grounds.  Currently on roll there are approximately 290 pupils including Nursery and children in our Speech and Language facility. Our pupils are delightful, behave well and are excited about their learning.

We are looking for a friendly, reliable and approachable Caretaker to join Wallands. The role of Caretaker is key to the smooth running of our school and we are looking for a proactive and flexible person to be responsible for security, safety, cleanliness and general maintenance of our school site.
