We are looking to appoint two highly motivated part-time School Receptionists to support our School Administrator in our busy school office. The part-time hours include:

This role could be considered as a full-time, term-time role. 

We require articulate, organised and well-presented individuals to provide an efficient and effective reception and administration service to our school community.

You will have excellent written, face-to-face and telephone communication skills. You should have experience of working in a fast-paced environment and should be able to demonstrate an ability to prioritise your workload and complete administration tasks to a high level of accuracy. 

A sound working knowledge of Microsoft Office applications is required. Experience of working in a school environment and with a school Management Information System is not essential but would be an advantage. 

We pride ourselves on individual education with a family ethos. We are based in Romsey within grounds of approximately 22 acres with enviable facilities including woodland, wetland, a natural pond, riding arena, and a small farm, as well as the traditional playing fields and a full-size sports hall. In addition, the school shares off-site facilities with the senior school normally unavailable at this level – a 35-acre sports ground, Outdoor Education Centre in Dartmoor National Park, and exclusive use of a sailing club on Southampton Water. The school is committed to Learning Outside the Classroom and has been awarded Silver status by the LOtC.
