We are seeking to appoint an Exams Manager, who will be responsible for the administration of examinations and record keeping processes associated with a student’s course and examination entries and receipt of final results and certificates. The role encompasses the organisation and preparation for examinations, including setting of exam timetables, seating plans, allocating invigilators and processing the exam papers.

The Exams Manager will be responsible for the examinations function and the administration of all academic and vocational examinations. The post-holder will be expected to ensure that all internal and external requirements are met and examinations administered effectively.

The successful applicant will be hard working, enthusiastic and have a keen eye for detail. Previous knowledge and experience of SIMS and examination procedures is desirable but not essential.

This is a very exciting time to join us.  In recent years, we have made excellent progress, and at our last OFSTED inspection (June 2016), we were rated as ‘good’ in all areas.  

“Since her appointment, the Headteacher has focused on making sure that all pupils feel safe, happy and confident so that they learn well.  This did not happen overnight but it is now apparent in pupils’ much improved behaviour and their positive response to the good teaching they receive.”  

We aspire to be rated ‘outstanding’, driven by a core belief that all of our students deserve nothing but the best possible teaching and support in order to be happy, healthy and successful.  We aim to deliver the best quality teaching and learning in a school where staff and students have respect for, and pride in themselves, their school and their community.

So, why not invest an hour to come and see Easthampstead Park Community School for yourself? We love welcoming visitors to our school and are confident our current staff and fabulous young people will convince you to join us.
