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). 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.

The position requires excellent, all round, administrative skills including attention to detail and forward planning. Being able to manage many different tasks while retaining complete confidentiality and discretion is essential.
