?Horizon Care and Education Group are recruiting for a committed and passionate individual for a permanent opportunity within Brewood School in Deal, Kent!

Brewood School is a co- educational, independent, specialist day school providing high quality education for secondary aged boys and girls. Based in Kent, the school meets the needs of a diverse group of pupils with special educational needs including speech, language and communication difficulties, autism, ADHD, Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) and Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) difficulties.

As our School Administrator, you will work closely with the Head Teacher, playing a key role in ensuring that everything runs as efficiently as possible. This role is far from a general administrator role, as you will be a key player in the success of the school.

As an administrator you will:

  • Be point of contact for the Head Teacher
  • Process admissions paperwork and keep vital records up to date, such as attendance registers
  • Take care of purchases and petty cash returns, from all staff
  • Organise room/facilities bookings for the school
  • Collate reports as requested
  • Be the friendly voice at the end of the phone for incoming/outgoing calls
  • Complete duties to facilitate school registration
  • Carry out annual reviews of paperwork, and keep contracts up to date
  • Continue to bring historical data together to show progress and administrative integrity
  • General administrative duties as directed by Head Teacher
  • Build relationships with our students, and be a trusted person in their school
  • Know our school inside and out, and be passionate about the work we do
