‘Join the most improved school in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire’

This summer (2017), for the third year running, we celebrated our best ever GCSE results. We, yet again, had significant increases in the number of students achieving a grade 4 (old C grade pass) in both English and Maths. Our progress scores were excellent and again significantly improved. 

Our Progress 8 score of +0.46 puts us in the top two schools in the city and shows that on average all our students made almost half a grade more than expected nationally across every one of their 8 subjects from their starting points. 66% of our students are disadvantaged, our Progress 8 score for disadvantaged students was +0.52. At Kingswood Academy all students make good progress in every subject, regardless of their starting point.

We are looking to recruit a support staff professional to become a key member of our reception team and provide efficient and responsive reception, information and support services for students, parents and other visitors to the academy.  

You will also administer First Aid treatment to students, staff and visitors of which training will be provided for you if needed.

The successful candidate will have: 

  • outstanding customer service and communication skills
  • experience of working on a reception
  • good numeracy, literacy and IT skills

We are at an exciting stage in our development, and our journey to becoming an Outstanding Academy is well underway.
