School 21, one of the most exciting 4 to 18 schools in the country, pioneering a range of powerful approaches to the curriculum and teaching, is looking to recruit a committed, hardworking and enthusiastic individual to provide receptionist duties and administrative support in our busy office. 

You will have at least three years’ similar experience, ideally in a school setting.   Being the first person who visitors to the school encounter makes this an important role.  Knowledge of SIMS would be an advantage.  You should be a cheerful and motivated individual who is able to work effectively within a team; is organised and works well under pressure, is personable, professional and welcoming to all visitors, pupils, parents and staff.  You will need to have excellent verbal and written communications skills and excellent ICT skills to produce professional documentation.  

School 21 has built strong foundations in a short period of time, confirmed by our recent Ofsted which was outstanding in all categories. There was strong recognition for the ethos and approach of the school:

"Pupils across the school make exceptional progress."
“Staff morale is exceptionally higher . Teachers at the early stages of their career value the ‘fantastic’ professional development and opportunities to learn from each other. Those with more experience said that they have become much better teachers since joining the school.”
"Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning, impeccable manners and show respect for everyone.”
Through project-based learning "pupils achieve remarkable standards of work and demonstrated knowledge and skills at levels beyond those expected for their age group."
“Pupils talk and discuss with a maturity and confidence that is remarkable for their years."
