Harris Academy Battersea is now in its fourth year and has established itself as one of the highest performing schools in London. In 2017, it was awarded the Evening Standard School of the Year as well as being named one of the Sunday Times Top 20 Schools in the country. In the last academic year, it was ranked 4th highest school in England for pupil progress and the top non-selective school nationally, and achieved a provisional figure of +1.40 for Progress 8 this year: nearly three times higher than the +0.5 threshold set by OfSTED for 'Outstanding'.

We are seeking to recruit casual exam invigilators and scribes to work with our students throughout the rest of the year. We presently have a group of dedicated staff but we are looking to increase the size of the team in order to better support the students.

We are seeking individuals with good literacy and numeracy skills, who can promote a supportive atmosphere for our students so that they achieve their best.

You will be required to attend morning and/or afternoon exam sessions according to availability.

Exam Invigilators are expected to report for duty 30 minutes before the start of each examination; and stay 10 minutes to wrap up at the end of the exam. However, flexibility is essential and invigilators may be required to stay an additional 1 hour after the main examination has finished.
