Sir William Borlase’s Grammar School is a selective-entry, co-educational grammar school located in the centre of the attractive Thames-side town of Marlow, Buckinghamshire. The school has an excellent academic record, placing well on a variety of national league tables, and is very heavily oversubscribed. Standards of attainment are well above the national average, and above those achieved by comparable selective schools at all age levels. The school also has a justifiably high reputation for the performance of its various school sports teams and for its many other extra-curricular activities.

Our success is built on the commitment, dedication and enthusiasm of our staff. We invest a great deal in professional development, making Borlase an exciting and dynamic place to work. Borlase was proud to be awarded World Class School Status in recognition of its success as a centre of High Performance Learning. The children of members of staff are given priority in the admissions process in the event of oversubscription. Please see the school’s admissions policy for more details. Staff are auto-enrolled into the Local Government Pension Scheme.

We are looking to appoint an experienced Finance Assistant to join our busy Finance Office and support the Business Manager/Finance Director.

The successful candidate will have previous financial experience, ideally in a school environment, and will be flexible and able to demonstrate an ability to adapt to a changing environment. You will be professional in your approach to all aspects of the role, extremely well organised, a team player and competent with Finance Systems, Excel and Google.
