A TYPICAL DAY

Our day starts early as the learners arrive on campus just after 8am and our team need to assist with front of house duties, accompanying potential learners to trial day classes and getting materials ready for our meetings later in the day.  We answer some of the enquiry emails coming through from the website and follow up with families queries and questions as part of the onboarding process.  

 

We have meetings with potential families to tour them around the school and share the Nexus Way with them.  We have conversations with families about the curriculum, academic results, nationality breakdown and immigration.

 

I receive an application form and supporting documents and need to input the information into our Student Management System and set up/administer admissions testing.  Later I need to generate the results and pass the application through to SLT for approval.  

 

I attend department meetings to assist in reviewing the daily running of the school.  I assist in a CCA, getting to know the learners and community better and providing a bit of well-being for my work-life balance. At peak times of the year for Admissions I am required for activities such as student recruitment fairs, orientation and Open days.  It’s always exciting meeting the future families of Nexus and ensuring the best choice of school is made to suit the learner.
