The governors seek to appoint a highly skilled Network Manager to lead, manage and support all aspects of the ICT network within school.  We require a suitably qualified and experienced colleague to strategically manage the development and maintenance of an efficient ICT infrastructure and technical service. We are looking for a candidate with excellent communication skills with experience of managing a network and an in depth knowledge of network systems and a range of software applications. 

The successful candidate must be passionate about IT, education and leadership, committed to our vision, values and ethos.  He / she will be a strong team player and have a proven track record of experience and knowledge to manage an effective, robust and reliable IT system across the network.

The Elton High School is a significantly oversubscribed School with a tradition of excellence.  We have a history of high achievement with results placing us as the highest performing school in Bury LA and amongst the top proportion of schools in the country.

The most recent Ofsted inspection (February 2017) was a fair and accurate analysis of the fantastic progress made by the school in the past couple of years. The inspection team noted that there is “a culture of high expectations” across the school with “high quality training” enabling teachers to provide top quality lessons as a matter of routine, with staff “focused on improving outcomes for all pupils”. The inspectors were particularly impressed with the climate for learning and behaviour of our students, describing Elton as “an orderly and calm place to learn” with students who “enjoy coming to school”, are “proud of their school” and are “confident in their learning”.

Further to this, in September 2016 we moved into a brand new school building – the first new secondary school building in Bury for many decades, which further reinforces the excitement surrounding our school community.  We are heavily oversubscribed, with over 450 first choice applications for our new Year 7 intake (200 places) in September 2019.

The progress that has been made across the school is not through chance or by accident, but is due to a relentless focus on teaching and learning, while developing the talents of an outstanding team of staff.

The school has excellent transport links with the M60, M61, M62 and M66 Motorways crisscrossing the area plus the Metrolink Light Rapid Transit system with a fast and frequent service from Bury centre through Manchester city centre to East Didsbury.

This School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.

Appointment is subject to a satisfactory enhanced disclosure from the DBS.
