The Swan School, Oxford
School Receptionist/Administrative Assistant
This is a rare and exciting opportunity to be part of starting an exceptional comprehensive school. As a member of The Swan’s team, you will help to build the foundations of an outstanding school from the ground up.
The Swan School is a free school which opened in September 2019 as part of the River Learning Trust (RLT). When fully subscribed it will have approximately 1200 students on the roll, of whom around 300 will be in the Sixth Form. Learning from the most successful approaches at the best schools, The Swan School provides a uniquely challenging and structured experience in a caring and disciplined environment. The ethos is academic; we regard an excellent academic education as the entitlement of all young people, no matter what their background or previous experiences of learning. Students will be inspired and nurtured, acquiring the knowledge and skills to think critically and creatively. They will learn to be confident, resilient and ambitious, and will have high expectations in terms of their own achievements and their contribution to wider society.
As a school receptionist you will play a crucial role at the heart of the school. You will carry administrative duties to ensure the smooth and effective running of the school and be the first port of call for visitors.
There is an option for this to be either a full-time or part-time role and we are open to conversations about flexible working.
The successful candidate will share our ambitions for our students. You will relish the challenge of being part of a new school that is different to other comprehensive schools in the city. You will be a highly motivated team player who is keen to get involved in all aspects of school life and learn new skills. Significant development opportunities will arise as the school grows.
