Permanent contract, required as soon as possible

We are seeking to appoint, as soon as possible, an experienced, dynamic, and innovative individual responsible for the maintenance of the school's management information system (SIMS) and staff and student timetables. The successful applicant will provide a critical service to the senior leadership team and will have experience and expertise in the use of SIMS and timetable production and maintenance. A high level of ICT literacy and knowledge of school systems would be advantageous, as would knowledge of post-16 funding. 

This is an exciting opportunity for a dedicated professional to make a real difference. You should have a proven track record in the management of data systems and timetabling. The post holder will also need to have excellent organisational and communication skills and be able to prioritise and work to strict deadlines as the role also involves other SLT administrative support.

We have been graded ‘good’ following our latest SIAMS inspection (March 2020). “The academy is highly inclusive, and tireless in supporting all of its pupils and staff. Because of this, each person is known, nurtured and inspired. This enables them to make strong progress from their starting points”. Our OFSTED inspection in February 2017 also judged the school as ‘good’ in all categories.

We have embarked on the next stage of our school development to accommodate growing numbers and add to our well-resourced teaching environment. Do have a look at our website for further details.
