This role will be based predominately at Oxted School however flexibility will be required to work across The Howard Partnership Trust schools when required.

As our dynamic and thriving Multi-Academy Trust continues to expand and develop we have an opportunity for a talented finance individual to join us as a Finance Business Partner to be based at a Partnership School within The Howard Partnership Trust.

Reporting to THPT Head of Finance, the successful candidate will be responsible for financial management and reporting in this growing role.  A CCAB qualified accountant with proven leadership and managerial qualities, you will provide commercial, technical and financial expertise as well as demonstrating a hands-on approach, to this developing organisation.

The Howard Partnership Trust (THPT) is a Multi-Academy Trust. It developed from a long-standing federation that was originally formed in 2007 at the request of the DfE and Surrey LA between Howard of Effingham, an outstanding 11-18 school and Thomas Knyvett College which had been in challenging circumstances.  Both schools benefitted with improved student outcomes leading to Ofsted judging partnership working as ‘Outstanding’ in 2009. 

The MAT was formed in November 2013, again at the request of the DfE and LA, to enable another school to join; Kenyngton Manor Primary, a Surrey 2-form entry primary school in Sunbury-on-Thames. Currently there are 9 schools in THPT, 4 secondaries, 4 primaries and 1 infant school, but we are a growing MAT with more schools likely to join us this year.

The distinctive feature of THPT is that the schools within our MAT all retain their own unique features in order to meet the needs of the communities which they serve. However, the vision and values that underpin the schools are rooted in the same guiding principles: namely to ensure that consistently high quality teaching facilitates excellent learning within an inclusive, caring, vibrant environment.
