The Kingston Academy seeks an Exams Officer to work under the direction of the Assistant Head and take responsibility for ensuring that external and internal examination processes are managed accurately and efficiently.  The successful candidate will also contribute towards the definition of the school policy on examinations and keep the policies under review and up-to-date.  

The successful candidate for this role will join us at an exciting stage in our development.  Our recent Ofsted inspection in May this year was hugely positive, judging the school to be Outstanding in all categories and identifying no areas requiring improvement.  The project to build a large modern extension with state-of-the-art STEM facilities to house our growing school is nearing completion.  The addition of a new Year 7 intake in September 2018 has brought total pupil numbers to over 700, whilst our original History Makers, entering in Year 10, are starting their KS4 studies.  In addition, planning for the development of our Sixth Form has begun in earnest.

Our first cohort to sit public examinations will do so in 2020, giving the successful candidate the scope to define the school strategies, processes and systems for successful and meticulous exams management.

The process will include:

  • Carrying out an exams related in-tray exercise; 
  • Meeting with a panel of our pupils for informal question and answer session;
  • Written safeguarding exercise; 

Interview with Head Teacher, Assistant Head and Data Manager.
