With a proud tradition of serving the community of Stockton-on-Tees, Outwood Academy Bishopsgarth is a medium-sized school with a big heart. We are part of the Outwood Grange Academies Trust, one of the highest performing trusts in the country.

Our vision is to put students first in order to raise standards and transform lives. To make this happen, we innovate constantly, including a curriculum that is designed to enable personalised learning in depth and with breadth. We ensure that additional teaching time and resources are provided to support students to leave with a solid foundation of good and better grades.

With a holistic view of education, we value vocational, practical, creative and academic talent equally and focus on building transferable skills that result in real-world success. We are also an ‘enhanced mainstream school’ providing an outstanding education for young people with physical and/or sensory needs. We aim to instil British Values: a passion for democratic participation, individual liberty, mutual respect, and difference and diversity, backed by a commitment to taking responsibility for one’s own conduct and progress. By empowering students to take ownership of their learning, we can create tomorrow’s leaders as well as responsible, caring and engaging citizens.

We are seeking to recruit an outstanding Receptionist and Administrator who will be the first point of contact for general enquiries. You will be required to provide a warm, professional and efficient reception service, including greeting visitors to the Academy. You will also provide a strong administrate support to the school, undertaking a range of general clerical and administration duties including typing and word processing. Experience in computer packages such as word and excel is essential.

To be successful, you should possess a Level 2 qualification (or equivalent) in English and Maths. You must have excellent interpersonal skills in order to allow you to engage with callers and visitors, students and staff in a professional, efficient and sensitive manner. A flexible approach to work is essential in order to assist the Administration team at busy times, including occasionally adjusting hours to cover after school events. Previous experience in an education environment would be an advantage but is not essential.

The Academy benefits from being part of the Outwood Family of Schools, which affords opportunities for staff to work and progress across several schools if desired.

Outwood Academy Bishopsgarth is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All offers of employment will be subject to enhanced DBS Check.
