St George's Ascot

We seek to appoint an experienced and professional full-time Operations Manager to lead and co-ordinate the Maintenance Team, providing a high quality delivery of services which are an integral part of the efficient day-to-day running of the School.

St George’s is an independent boarding and day school with approximately 270 pupils aged from 11-18 years about 45% of whom are boarders (both full and tailored) and with a Sixth Form of approximately 80 pupils. The school operates as an Educational Trust administered by a Board of Governors, is a member of the Girls’ Schools Association (GSA), Boarding Schools Association (BSA), and is ISC accredited.

We are a welcoming school with a warm sense of community and visitors often comment on the perceptible supportive and cheerful atmosphere. We believe that a happy and successful school is one where all pupils have the opportunities to develop their strengths. The richness of opportunities within and outside the classroom are fundamental elements of the St George’s experience and this allows the girls to foster the confidence, independence and academic curiosity that lead to success. Our academic results are impressive, with the ‘value-added’ in public examinations a real strength. We understand how girls learn effectively and we regularly add at least one grade higher at GCSE and A Level than baseline testing would suggest.

Over the past two years at GCSE, St George’s has been placed in the top 5 to 10% of schools nationally for value added.

We are looking to appoint a full-time Operations Manager. Working closely with the Bursar, the successful candidate will lead and co-ordinate the work of the Maintenance Team to ensure a high quality delivery of services including estates, security, transport, health and safety and any external use of facilities.

A competitive salary is on offer, reflecting the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.

Letters of application together with the completed application form (Support Staff) should be sent to:-

Mrs E Hewer, Headmistress, St George's School, Wells Lane, Ascot, Berkshire, SL5 7DZ; headmistress@stgeorges-ascot.org.uk

The closing date for applications is 4pm on Friday 30 October 2020.

It is intended that first round interviews will be conducted remotely during the week commencing Monday 2 November. Final round interviews will be conducted at the School on either Wednesday 11 or Friday 13 November.
