Richmond Park Academy (RPA), is part of the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) group and is situated in East Sheen, close to Richmond Park. Richmond, Kingston and the West End are all between 15 and 30 minutes’ journey from the school and our proximity to central London means that students can benefit enormously from the vast range of social, cultural, sporting and academic opportunities that we are able to access.

Our student body is diverse, exciting and talented – and the same is true of our staff.  We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the high number of good and outstanding teachers who work in our school.  We are also noted for our ‘can do’ attitude.  We are keen, always, to encourage new and/or young staff to make their mark as soon as they are ready.

The school completed a £10m rebuild and refurbishment programme, including the introduction of a 6th form in 2014. Our 2018 Ofsted reported that we were a ‘good’ school in all categories.  The inspectors judged: “The principal is respected across the school and has communicated a clear vision for the school to all members of the school community. He has empowered the leadership team to raise standards and hold staff to account for pupils’ outcomes through a relentless focus on improving teaching and learning. Staff feel well supported and happy to be part of the drive for improvement”. 

The general office is responsible for many aspects of the day-to-day operation of the Academy.

We are looking for someone who is computer literate, has excellent command of the English Language both verbal and written English, is flexible and willing to learn and loves being around children.  You will have a keen eye for detail, be organized with the ability to handle multiple tasks at one time.

The newly appointed member of staff will be an enthusiastic administrator, being able to work on their own initiative as well as being part of a team. He or she will be a committed and hardworking team player who will support the pupils, staff and parents in continuing to raise the profile and ongoing success of the department and, more widely, the Academy. 

AET believes that each and every child is inspired to choose a remarkable life.  Our mission is to gather and motivate inspirational people committed to delivering an excellent education that launches children into remarkable lives.  

Our values are:

  • Be unusually brave
  • Discover what’s possible

  • Be big-hearted

We offer:

  • Excellent career prospects across the network, with a culture of looking to promote from within
