Are you excited to lead a range of staff in developing their usage of data systems?

Do you want to work in an excellent environment with strong traditions and values?

Westminster City School is a successful 11-18 boys’ Christian non-denominational comprehensive academy with a mixed Sixth Form. Ours is a lively and vibrant learning community situated in the heart of central London with all the challenges and advantages of an inner city school. The school was judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted in early 2013 with an outstanding curriculum and governance and judged ‘Good’ again in 2017. We are pro-active in our ambition to become recognised as the “go to” boys’ school in London. You, like us, will share our belief in the highest standards of academic attainment in a comprehensive setting.  We are therefore seeking to recruit a professional and highly skilled data analyst to specifically focus on improving and developing progress and achievement in Key Stage 3 and across Key Stage 4 and 5.

This role is an essential component in our staffing structure. We are looking for a Data and Impact Analyst who will regularly extract, manipulate and analyse data in order for middle and senior leaders to provide relevant and appropriate support, intervention and enrichment to students at all key stages. The successful candidate will be responsible for administering and producing accurate and timely reports containing key data from across all Years 7 to Year 13. By using specific software including SIMS, SISRA, Sig+, ALPS and/or other systems, the Data and Exams Manager will produce data analysis reports for the school’s Leadership Group and Governing Body.  The successful applicant will ensure that data is presented in a manner suitable for all users so that they may in turn improve pupil progress and outcomes (including individuals, and specific groups such as FSM, EAL, SEND). We are looking for someone who takes initiative, is able to work under pressure with a wide range of people in a dynamic and exciting secondary school context.

A key element of the post holder’s responsibility will be the leadership of internal and external assessments and they will be able to confidently lead a team of invigilators so that all requirements of the JCQ are adhered to.

We believe in developing our staff and have an energetic and supportive staff team and an effective CPD programme.  We welcome applications from experienced Data Managers with previous experience in a school setting.
