This is a senior post and one which is key to the continued growth and development of the School. It is crucial that the post holder has excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, can present professionally and is able to maintain a high level of efficiency and remain calm under pressure. The Admissions team is the first point of contact for prospective parents and students and therefore a professional, warm and friendly approach is essential.
