We wish to appoint an inspirational and highly motivated Student Support Officer/Administration Assistant to make a real impact in this rapidly improving school. A new Headteacher took up post on 1st September 2017, and a new senior leadership team was appointed in January 2018. Since then, the school’s performance has improved significantly, reflected in a positive Ofsted inspection in May 2018, where our leadership & management, 6th form, and students’ personal development, behaviour and welfare, were all graded “Good”. With solid foundations now in place, the opportunity to play a significant role in leading the school to ‘Outstanding’ is both exciting and realistic.
The successful candidate will possess energy, vision and enthusiasm, and believe that every young person deserves the very best education. A commitment to providing the best possible support, and a willingness to learn, train and develop as an Administration Support Officer are all essential. We can offer you an environment where student behaviour is excellent, prior attainment levels are amongst the highest in the North-East and our students and staff are a pleasure to work with. With over 20 new teachers, including 11 NQTs and a number of support staff appointed over the last two years, we have quickly become a vibrant and exciting school in which to develop your career.
Framwellgate School Durham is a rapidly growing 11-18 non-selective secondary school within a Multi Academy Trust. The school roll is set to have increased by 20% in two years and we have more than 1200 students on roll.
This is an outstanding opportunity for a talented individual to join our dynamic and forward thinking team. We are looking for someone who is driven, committed and skilled in a range of administrative tasks who can work alongside colleagues to support the administrative functions across school, coordinate lettings at the Sjøvoll Centre, and support students throughout the day with general enquiries across a busy student reception.

• Undertaking a full range of administrative and clerical tasks

• Maintaining and updating student records
• Supporting the data manager in the input and reporting of data
