Hours – 190 hours per year

The Abbey School is looking to appoint a part time Clerk to the Governors to start at the beginning of the new academic year September 2019. The successful candidate will be a highly organised and efficient person who is computer literate and confident using email as a form of communication. Previous experience of Clerking would be preferred, but experience of working in a role where accuracy in recording meetings is essential.

With attendance at the meetings, preparation and follow up work, we anticipate this role needs someone able to commit approximately 190 hours a year. Our meetings are currently held either late afternoon (4.30pm – 6.30pm) or early evening (6.00pm – 8.00pm).

The Abbey School is a wide ability 11-19 Academy of 1,120 students, with over 180 students in the sixth form. We are also an IB World School and offer the IBCP (International Baccalaureate Careers Programme). We are currently oversubscribed in year 7 and have a very positive team with high staff morale. 

The school is situated on the rural outskirts of the small market town of Faversham.  We aim to provide the highest quality value-added education and excellent pastoral care for all students to ensure they feel secure and valued.

Further details and an application form can be obtained from the HR Manager, Vanessa Bolton, by telephone or email:
