We are looking for an effective and enthusiastic Office Manager to join our admin team as soon as possible, at this highly successful and heavily over-subscribed school which is one of the highest performing 11-18 school in Staffordshire and in the top 10% of schools nationally for progress.  We gained ‘Good’ in our 2018 Ofsted inspection and as part of the Local Authority’s quality assurance strategy, we have gained Category 1 status, the highest category of school performance, for four years running.  We are a founding member of Primitas Learning Partnership, a new Multi Academy Trust which seeks to make a positive difference in the local community.

The postholder will be responsible for organising and supervising administrative systems within the school, and to contribute to the planning, development and monitoring of support services and line management of support staff, including co- ordination and delegation of relevant activities.  The postholder will also provide support to the Local Governing Body.

We welcome applications from adults who can provide excellent support and engage with students.  We offer a positive school culture, opportunities for further professional development and strong support from the Senior Leadership Team. 

In return, we offer an incredibly positive working environment, passionately believing that our human resources are our most important and valuable resources. Therefore, our staff wellbeing strategy is at the heart of our ongoing improvement work, meaning that middle and senior leaders are committed to ensuring that all staff are happy, cared for, listened to and professionally equipped to fulfil their role to the highest possible standard. Furthermore, opportunities for career progression regularly arise, with the Academy having an excellent record of training and developing our staff from within.
