About the Role

Higham Lane School is delighted to welcome applications for the post of School Administrator (Support for Learning).

Higham Lane is a large, 11-18 comprehensive academy, set on an attractive site on the Warwickshire-Leicestershire border, easily accessible due to excellent road, train and bus connections.

Achievement in all its forms: artistic, academic, social, cultural, sporting and intellectual is equally valued in our diverse seven-year, knowledge-rich curriculum. We were extremely pleased to have been rated as Outstanding by Ofsted in May 2019, one of only a small number of schools in England to have achieved the highest rating that year.  We are strongly committed to ensuring that all of the young people in our care make excellent academic progress and we take great pride in securing both impressive progress and high attainment for our students, whatever their starting points. Higham Lane is amongst the highest-achieving non-selective comprehensive schools in Warwickshire and nationally.  We are also delighted to have achieved impressive A level results in our high-performing Sixth Form. Our progress figures indicate that our teaching and learning and student behaviour and engagement are excellent! We are excited by the opportunities which our recent merger with the Central England Academy Trust will bring us and are also delighted that the Department for Education has given us permission to open a new secondary Free School, Higham Lane North Academy, within the next few years. In July 2021, we were granted World Class Schools status, one of a very small number of schools to achieve this.
