This is an exciting opportunity to join the school’s Central Administrative team as School Administrator.  A friendly ‘can do’ approach, good communication skills and accurate IT skills are essential for this role.   Key duties include dealing with a range of enquiries by telephone, face to face and email; and using Microsoft Excel and the school's SIMS database to process data.

As a school, we value and prioritise the continuing development of our staff.  This comes in a variety of forms, through subject specific professional development delivered in department time, regular teaching and learning workshops, INSET days and through our close links with the Wolds TSA.
