The Kingston Academy seeks a Cover/Administrative Assistant to work as a part of the Pupil Services team, assisting with a variety of operational and administrative tasks and taking day-today charge of cover administration. As a key member of a dynamic office team you will be offered the opportunity to develop your administrative skills in a wide range of areas. This role would be particularly suited to someone with administrative experience, with the flexibility and sense of autonomy to take on a wide range of tasks and with strongly collaborative approach, enabling you to work effectively as part of a team.
The successful candidate for this role will join us at an exciting stage in our development.

Current pupil numbers are over 700, whilst our original History Makers, now in Year 10, are in the midst of their KS4 studies. In addition, planning for the development of our Sixth Form has begun in earnest.
