About KAA  

KAA is an 11 – 18 academy situated in the heart of Notting Hill, West London. We opened in brand new buildings in 2014 and our facilities are second to none. We are currently in our fourth year of operation and have 920 students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 13 with us. By September 2018 we will be a full school with all seven year groups.

KAA is a school which has the very highest standards – both in terms of academic teaching and life beyond the classroom. In our first year the Department of Education reported we are “one of the best new academies they had ever seen” in terms of our planning and curriculum. In 2017, Ofsted have judged us to be “outstanding” in all areas and described standards as “exceptional”. Our Sixth Form is also outstanding and is operated jointly with our independent school partners Charterhouse and Godolphin & Latymer. Candidates can read of our recent Ofsted and exam successes on our website, kaa.org.uk, along with other evidence of the exceptional standards in our school.  

We are currently looking for a talented and committed Finance Manager to join our outstanding academy.

We are looking for a Finance Manager to support the Finance Director in the day to day running of academy finances. The candidate will join an existing team of finance professionals and will complement the roles of the existing team.

We are looking for a talented, experienced and enthusiastic professional to play a key role in the financial management of the school and to be an active member of the school’s back office support team.
