Students in the academy routinely make more progress than almost any other school Progress 8 is consistently above 1.00 which indicates that students achieve a grade better for each of their best 8 GCSE’s compared to the average. In 2018 the progress 8 score was 1.07. That is great news for our students, the academy and our community, but there is so much more that we know can be achieved and you can help.

We have a relentless ambition to deliver continuing success to the young people we serve. Our approach is based on very simple principles: clear systems and extremely high expectations. We focus on the development of our students, their values and ultimately their academic success. We maximise the impact of teaching by providing clear leadership, minimising bureaucracy and effective support that have tangible results on the quality of teaching and outcomes for our students.

The Role

We are looking for a highly motivated, exceptional individual to take on the role of a Library Assistant. You will be working with excellent staff in this exciting and challenging post. 

The post holder will be required to work flexibly over a 5 day period ensuring the library is covered during the hours of 7.30am – 6.30pm. This may mean an early start or late finish on some days. You will be expected to work from 7.30am on Wednesdays and finish at 6.30pm on Monday and Fridays. 

You will be responsible for assisting the Learning Resources Manager in the organisation of the libraries, in support of the school curriculum and in response to the needs of students and staff. You will also have strong ICT skills, be literate, numerate with the ability to inspire and support students in achieving the best possible learning outcomes.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to shape the lives of young people in Hackney. If you think you can help transform the opportunities for the community we serve then we would like to hear from you.
