Head’s PA

Required February 2024 Head’s PA (full time, term time + 6 weeks)

Holme Grange is a successful, traditional Independent School with a real soul. We aim to stimulate intellectual curiosity and encourage pupils to embrace challenge. We have high expectations, setting high standards for ourselves and our pupils. Pastoral care is the responsibility of every member of staff and is one of the many strengths of this thriving School and we have waiting lists in most year groups.

We are seeking to appoint an experienced and dynamic Personal Assistant to the Head. This role is essential to the leadership of the School by helping the Head with the day to day running of the School by managing her office, organising her diary and coordinating the paperwork required to carry out the wide spectrum of responsibilities of the Head. The role will also include some support for the SMT with Academic Administration as required.

Reporting to the Headteacher, the postholder will establish and maintain good relationships with colleagues, parents, pupils and external partners. The successful candidate will have a proven track record as a personal assistant, with experience gained ideally within a school or a similarly busy and dynamic environment. This role will require high-levels of attention to detail and discretion, whilst the ability to be a team player is essential. Energy, commitment and a willingness to take a full and active part in the broader life of this busy school are also essential requirements.

Holme Grange is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. Applicants for all jobs will undergo appropriate child-protection screening including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check to enhanced level. A Prohibition Check is also carried out. Holme Grange School is an equal opportunities employer.
