Richmond Park Academy (RPA), is part of the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) group and is situated in East Sheen, close to Richmond Park which is the largest of the capital’s eight Royal Parks and the biggest enclosed space in London, 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, must 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, and also included the now first class library with dedicated computer learning area. Our 2012 Ofsted reported that we were a ‘good’ school in all categories. The inspector wrote: “Leaders and managers share a commitment to drive up standards, provide a broad and sturdy foundation for students’ future well-being and establish the academy as the school of choice within its locality”.

The purpose of this role is to ensure the end to end processes of both internal and external examinations are completed effectively in line with the policies of the Academy and those of the relevant awarding/external bodies. The role will require a high level of organisational skills with a keen eye for detail

We are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic individual who is highly organised and solutions-focused and to start as soon as possible. The successful candidate will have meticulous attention to detail, good IT and interpersonal skills and the ability to remain calm under pressure. This is a pivotal, busy and varied role, interacting with all staff members as well as outside agencies. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to respond to fast paced deadlines.

As the sponsor, AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners – to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resources available to them. In each of our academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes. You will also be entitled to the following benefits: a health cash plan, vehicle affinity scheme, Cycle2work, childcare vouchers and Westfield rewards.
