The deputy registrar will play a key role in the admissions of pupils to St Swithun’s and is primarily responsible for helping to deliver a warm, welcoming and efficient admissions process from initial enquiry to a student joining St Swithun’s.
The successful candidate will need to develop excellent relationships with prospective parents, feeder schools and agents by delivering a positive year-round admissions process that the supports the school’s vision, ethos and values.
In the last few years the work of the admissions office has expanded in order to meet the needs of St Swithun’s as well as the changing requirements of feeder schools, UK-based and international families, educational consultants and agents and the Home Office with regards to student visas and immigration practice.
In addition to increased travel abroad to attend education exhibitions and future schools’ events there has been greater emphasis on proactive measures and individual personal contact with the hundreds of families on our lists. We are dealing with markets across different time zones in both term time and when school is closed and wish to ensure that each family has the necessary individual attention as they build their relationship with the school.
St Swithun’s is a renowned academically selective school which attracts worldwide interest amongst parents and agents for both its normal entry points at years 7, 9 and 12 as well as for occasional places in year 8 and year 10.
