• Sound organisation and administration skills
• Familiarity with a school environment
• Knowledge of Microsoft packages and school database systems (we use Integris)
• An ability to work pro-actively both independently, and as part of a team
• A sense of humour!

We can offer:

• A positive school environment with children who are great to be with
• A well organised and well-led staff team
• A very special place to work as part of the Gold Star Federation with our sister school Goldbeaters Primary School

If you would like to:

• Feel a real buzz at work
• Share our unique vision
• Work with staff who really do have a team spirit second to none

… then, we would like to hear from you!
