IMAGINE walking into school and seeing a dinosaur - or a plane - or a badger. The Langley Academy is not just another school; it is a new way of learning. As the UK’s first museum school, The Langley Academy has a museum within the building. Here you are encouraged to use your imagination to create new ways to ignite students’ desire to learn. 

We are ideally situated, only minutes from the M4 at Junction 5 and the M25, and with excellent rail links to Central London. If you chose to live here, renting is cheaper than in Central London, yet you are in town quickly. Windsor, Marlow or Henley are close and if you enjoy weekend travelling it takes about 15 minutes to Heathrow. We border Buckinghamshire, with no less than 100,000 acres which are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty - including a substantial part of the magnificently wooded Chiltern Hills. Whether you are into the outdoors or want to be close to London, working here is ideal. 

Our Sims Manager will deliver an effective and responsive data and assessment support service for the Headteacher, Senior Leadership Team, staff, students and parents/carers of the school. 

The successful candidate will effectively manage the Schools Information Management System to provide support and training to all SIMS users and improve the use of SIMS by staff generally. We are looking to recruit an individual who possesses excellent ICT skills who can design, develop and create templates/reports/data sheets/training materials to assist our Senior and Middle Leadership Team to make strategic decisions based upon information provided. The ideal candidate should also have experience of working on the timetable. 

You will be able to produce detailed analysis of student data which will highlight trends, impact and assessment information and will be able to present it in easy to understand formats for various stakeholders. Your IT skills will include an advanced level of knowledge in developing Excel based data management. 

A working knowledge of SIMS is essential. In addition to being highly organised and flexible in your approach to working practices, you should have the ability to liaise and communicate with colleagues at all levels of the organisation. 

The successful candidate will play an integral and vital role in improving the outcomes of our students. You will play a key role in supporting staff to develop data handling skills that translate analysis into classroom impact on achievement and progress.
