Mainly term time only (1300 hours annualised).

The Seckford Foundation Free Schools Trust (the Trust), was established by the Seckford Foundation in 2012 to help local communities in Suffolk set up and run free schools, at the request of those members of the community who wanted to improve aspirations and rates of progress for young people of secondary school age.

With the support of the Department for Education and the Seckford Foundation, the Trust opened Beccles and Saxmundham Free Schools in September 2012, and Ixworth Free School in September 2014. All of our schools are funded by the government and are non-selective; they are designed to provide an excellent, academically focused education for young people aged eleven to sixteen.

We are seeking an experienced and capable assistant to provide comprehensive secretarial, administrative and logistical support to the Trust Leadership Group.

This is a new post and presents a great opportunity to play a key role within the Trust.

  • be based in Woodbridge, although some travel will be required between Woodbridge and the Free Schools.
