This is a fantastic opportunity to join a forward-thinking school with an established reputation for innovation and excellence. We are looking for a motivated and highly capable Admissions Coordinator to join our team. This post is offered as a permanent contract from February 2022.

The successful candidate will have excellent time management and organisation skills, and will be able to communicate effectively and professionally with pupils, staff and parents.

It was announced in December 2021 that the school will change its name. The process of choosing a new name has begun and will involve students, former pupils, parents and staff. The new name will be announced in the summer of 2022.

We are proud of our high academic standards and our innovative approach to the development of teaching and learning across the school and we value the range of opportunities we provide for our pupils outside the classroom.
