Inspire their remarkable with us

We are a rapidly improving primary and nursery school situated in the one of the most beautiful areas of Kent, 30 seconds from the nearest bus stop, 5 minutes from the train station and within easy reach of Maidstone, Tonbridge and London. We serve our strong, supportive and welcoming local community and are committed to providing high quality teaching and learning for all of our pupils.

Due to internal changes, we are now recruiting a part-time, permanent school Receptionist/ Administrator to start in September on a two-day per week basis (ideally Monday and Wednesday but this can be flexible).  Within this role, you will maintain the efficient running of the school office, provide an administrative service to the Headteacher and staff and assist pupils and parents with any problems they might have.  We are looking for a proactive, enthusiastic and dedicated individual, ideally with previous experience.

We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable life. It’s what motivates us around here. We know this vision requires something extra. Which is why at AET, you’ll find more. More opportunities, so you can forge your own path. More care and support, so you can prioritise what matters most. More purpose, for you and for the children we’re inspiring.

We offer: 

  •  More opportunity to grow your career - We’ll support you in developing your career and experience at this school or another AET school. 
  • More tailored support - We understand every academy is unique. We’ll give you tailored support and flexibility, allowing you to do what’s best for your children.  
  • More chance to see what’s out there - We create opportunities for teachers to visit other AET academies and learn from outside experience. 
  • More like minded colleagues, so you can benefit from others’ experience - You’re connected to our network of 58 academies and thousands of education professionals.  
  • More technology so you can make more impact - Google Workspace Enterprise for Education embedded throughout. Collaborative cloud technology gives you access to the latest tools, when and where it suits you. More tech enabled classrooms mean less time spent on admin and more time teaching. 
  • More time - We strive to minimise unnecessary distractions so you can have energy for your job, and your life.
