If you want to be the best, then you should probably join us

Students in our academy made more progress than in any other school in London and made the best progress of any co-educational school in the country in 2014 (Best 8 score 1081.4). In addition, we have maintained our results in 2015 at a level significantly above national averages. That is great news for our students, the academy and our community, but there is so much more that we know can be achieved and you can help.

We have a relentless ambition to deliver continuing success to the young people we serve. Our approach is based on very simple principles: clear systems and extremely high expectations. We focus on the development of our students, their values and ultimately their academic success. We maximise the impact of teaching by providing clear leadership, minimising bureaucracy and effective support that have tangible results on the quality of teaching and outcomes for our students.

We are looking to appoint an organised, highly-motivated individual to work as a ‘Receptionist/ Administrator’ in our busy Academy office. Working with the Student Services Manager, you will be responsible for ensuring the smooth-running of the Academy office alongside other office staff. Duties will include keeping up-to-date administrative systems within the Academy to bring about continuous and effective delivery of service to students and providing an efficient reception service.

In addition, you will be expected to fulfil the role of Student Personal Adviser and/or mentor if required, and to contribute to the maintenance of a caring and stimulating environment for young people.

The City Academy, Hackney is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful applicants.
