Administrative Assistant (Secondary School)


Ark John Keats Academy


A rare opportunity to join an outstanding new school in north London. 


Ark John Keats is an all-through school in the London Borough of Enfield. Our intake is mixed and comprehensive in nature. We welcomed our first Reception classes in September 2013 and our first cohort of Year 7 pupils joined us in September 2014.  The academy will reach full capacity in 2020 with just under two thousand pupils.  Ark John Keats was judged ‘Outstanding’ in all areas in our Ofsted inspection of April 2015.


We are looking to recruit a committed Administrative Assistant to join our secondary school office. In this varied and important role you will provide administrative support to the academy across a range of areas to support staff, parents and pupils.


The post will require you to support attendance, front of house, reprographics, first aid, pupil data, pastoral and administration within the academy. You will be required to uphold the vision and ethos of the academy at all times and provide an excellent level of customer service. You will be part of a team that is committed, aligned and passionate about our school.


It is a fantastic opportunity to be a member of a school that is breaking the mould by providing pupils from relatively disadvantaged backgrounds with a standard of education previously the preserve of the best fee-paying schools. If you share our vision, values and enthusiasm we would like to hear from you.
