The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding


We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, passionate and resilient Examinations Officer to join our popular and oversubscribed STEM specialist Academy on a 1 year fixed-term contract whilst our current Examinations Officer is on Maternity Leave. 

Proudly rated “Good” by Ofsted in all 4 categories in June 2016, The UCL Academy is a mixed 11-19 Academy in the heart of the London Borough of Camden.  Priding ourselves on high academic aspirations, A-Level students in 2016 attained substantially above the national average for A*-B grades, and we expect GCSE outcomes to be well above the national average when the first cohort of pupils take their examinations in 2017; Our sponsor University College London provides a range of exciting academic opportunities and exposure to university life for pupils.  We offer iconic state-of-the-art facilities and the opportunity to work with the latest innovations in classroom technology.

We expect the successful candidate to oversee all aspects of examinations management within the school, in consultation with the Examinations and Data Manager. You will be responsible for the smooth running of internal and external examinations, ensuring JCQ compliance at all times, and will assist with the process for pupil reports. The successful candidate will be articulate and able to deal sensitively with a variety of situations with staff, examination invigilators, pupils, parents and examination boards.

The post holder will have excellent administrative skills, computer and SIMS literacy and be highly efficient and organised. The ability to be clear and assertive whilst remaining calm, composed, tactful and flexible is essential, often working to tight deadlines. Previous school experience is a must and examinations office experience would be extremely helpful but is not essential. A working knowledge of SIMS is key to this role. 

The post will be full time in term time, with extra agreed days in the school holidays, with additional flexibility required to suit the needs of the department. The salary will be commensurate with the post and will depend upon qualifications and experience. A willingness to contribute to the wider life of a busy Academy may be an advantage.
