Leighton Park offers a distinctive atmosphere that creates achievement with values, character and community. Founded on Quaker principles, we seek to inspire each student to fulfil their academic and personal potential and be reflective, purposeful adults. We appoint candidates who will contribute and thrive in our vibrant community.

This is a varied and interesting full time role in which you will work in various aspects of school administration including managing and allocating work to the School Office and Reception teams, supporting the Head’s PA and managing the administration of the school minibus fleet and transport services for students.
