Vacancies, Volunteering & Work Experience

Current Vacancies

We currently have a vacancy for a VOLUNTEER minibus driver for one of our younger year group classes to get to and from Cranleigh Swimming Pool for their lesson.

We also have a Gardening VOLUNTEER 

The details

Mini Bus Driver

Ideally we would love to have someone who can commit to a regular Thursday from 10-15 to 12-15.

The children go every Thursday leaving Gosden at 10-15 and returning for 12-15.  You will need to drive the children and teachers in our minibus, waiting at Cranleigh Leisure Centre in the parking bay/where you will be able to grab a coffee/other refreshment.  The children and staff will then return to the mini bus by 11-45 and you will need to drive them back to school.

If you would like to volunteer, you will need to be older than 50 to ensure you have the right minibus code on your drivers licence – Category D1.

The process involved is as follows:

  • You will be subject to a DBS check (The school will arrange and pay for this)
  • Once DBS completed you will then take a short “refresher course” run by our minibus training company.  This course will take place from our site and is paid for by Gosden.

 If you are interested in the opportunity, we would be delighted to hear from you. 

Please contact: Anna Chapman

Gardening/Outdoor Volunteer

We are looking for 3 additional outdoor volunteers to help our current small team at Gosden House School. We are creating inspirational garden spaces for our special children and maintaining the outdoor teaching areas including our 200 year old walled garden. The consistent funding cuts to special needs education over the last few years in particular has meant that the School now relies entirely on volunteers to develop and maintain these spaces which are so important for our children. We meet on Wednesday term-time mornings for a few hours and are led by a member of the school staff. Previous gardening experience would be beneficial but is not essential. If you have a few hours to spare and would like to join our friendly team please do get in touch to arrange a visit.
