SO2 - SCP 32-34 (£28,485 - £30,153 pa)
5 days, 37 hours per week, all year round

We have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and committed individual to provide a high level of flexible support to the Headteacher and all members of the Senior Leadership Team; this will include responsibilities to the Governing Body of the school.

This is an important middle leadership role that requires an experienced self-motivated individual with excellent communication skills and a friendly and professional approach to ensure the Head teacher is fully supported in all aspects of their work including confidential matters. You will be expected to undertake tasks, project work and research on an operational and strategic level to present proposals; make changes; have clear impact and support the work of the Headteacher and the Senior Leadership Team with minimal supervision.

It is essential that the successful candidate is able to work as part of a team, be flexible and adaptable to meet changing needs. The Personal Assistant has a crucial role in our continued drive for higher achievement for all our pupils, ensuring our pupils’ hard work is supported by effective administration, coupled with an understanding of maximising achievement.

We are an 11-18 mixed comprehensive school that is extremely popular and oversubscribed.  We moved into our new school building in September 2008 and have outstanding facilities and a state of the art learning environment.

We are proud of our comprehensive school principles and our daily work is centred on four key values; summarised as together we can make a difference; resilient to change; ambitious to excel and caring for the lives of individuals. We are a school with great aspirations; proud of our history and heritage, yet always looking to the future – celebrating student well-being, high academic standards and achievement for all. Success at school is the result of students, parents/carers and teachers working together.
