Would you like to be part of a new school?

Bohunt School Wokingham (BSW) is looking to appoint highly motivated, dynamic and innovative individuals with the desire to be part of a brand new school; to help shape, open and ensure the success of our new-build secondary school. The school opened in September 2016 with Year 7, growing to a roll of 1200 students, aged 11-16, by September 2020, with a final phase addition of a sixth form of up to 300 to follow. 

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to play an active part of the development and direction of the school as it grows, with rich opportunities for professional and career development both within the school and across the wider Academy Trust. Interest in the new school has been high. We are heavily oversubscribed and as a new and growing school, this represents a unique opportunity.

Ideally we are seeking to appoint an experienced, well-qualified, and highly motivated Exams Officer. You will be responsible for the efficient and effective running of the administration of all internal and external examinations within school, including liaising with staff, students, invigilators and examination boards. 

In addition to this you will work closely as part of a team with the SIMS and student data manager and assist in analysis of a range of data across the school. Working as part of a team is a crucial aspect of the role within many different departments, so you must have a flexible attitude to react to different situations throughout the school day and the ability to use your own initiative within the learning environment.
