We wish to appoint a highly motivated, efficient, and reflective Receptionist and Events Co-ordinator to provide a range of administrative services within the organisation. Over the last five years we have assembled an excellent group of teachers and support staff who have had a significant impact on the quality of outcomes at the school.  With an aspirational culture, and a commitment to evidence informed teaching, we want to achieve more.  We were judged “Good” in all areas in our last Ofsted inspection (July 2021) and student outcomes are strong. Our 6th form outcomes are amongst the best in the region. We have made significant improvements to our curriculum, teaching, and professional development programme and we are committed to reducing staff workload.

Framwellgate School Durham is an 11-18 non-selective secondary school and Single Academy Trust.  The school roll has increased by 35% over the last five years, and we now have more than 1300 students who attend the school. The Sjøvoll Centre is a conference and event centre offering a unique space for learning, meeting, and sharing located on the grounds of Framwellgate School Durham. The centre offers four versatile bookable rooms, which are sometimes used by staff and students at the school, but also provides long term office rental space with our current rentals being County Durham Sport and Investing in Children. The successful candidate will possess expertise alongside energy and enthusiasm. A willingness to learn, train and develop as a Receptionist and Events Co-ordinator 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.

Framwellgate School Durham has been selected to be part of the latest phase in the Schools Rebuilding Programme and we envisage a fantastic new school building to be ready for September 2025.
