Overview: Nishkam School, West London is an innovative state of the art all-through 4-19 school. Nishkam’s outstanding primary school opened in 2013 with the secondary phase due to open in September 2018, with a four form entry in year 7 of 100 pupils. The school is part of an outstanding Multi-Academy Trust. (4 schools, 2 nurseries; vocational college in Kenya)


A unique and exciting opportunity has arisen to make an important contribution to the next phase of development of Nishkam School West London (NSWL). Nishkam School West London will be a flagship school for our Trust offering all-through provision in an expansive 11 acre green site. Opportunities like these are few and far between and will interest those with creative minds and high aspirations, seeking to inspire a new generation of children through a values led, multi-faith curriculum. 


Background

The new school building and site will open ready for the new intake in September 2018. Nishkam School West London, (Ofsted Outstanding 2016), will also move to the new site in September 2018.  

NST is one of the first multi-academy free school trusts in the UK. The Trust has opened two free schools in Birmingham (primary in 2011 and a secondary in 2012) both of which are judged Ofsted Outstanding, and a third, a primary free school in Wolverhampton. 

NST has developed an inclusive values led multi-faith educational approach that nurtures pupils of all faiths and those of no particular faith. The Nishkam ethos is to help grow a selfless mind-set, aspiring to excellence as well as going beyond ourselves to serve others, to create supportive communities and to realise our true potential. This pervades every aspect of the school.


The Role

A school office manager works within the school office, under the guidance of the Principal. It is a position of responsibility that covers day-to-day management of the school office and the staff within it – including supervision of the school’s administrative systems, pupil information, staff absences, liaison with parents and the production of key reports. This will require an element of flexibility and good self-organisation skills.


The Environment

The brand new school is based in 11 acres of green space in an impressive purpose built single facility housing the all-through school.


We will offer you:

  • A very warm and welcoming team
  • Hardworking and dedicated colleagues
  • Supportive parents, carers and community
  • A committed and fully involved Governing Body and Board of Directors
  • A new learning environment
  • Opportunities for professional development
