Greythorn is a vibrant multicultural school in the Compton Acres area of West Bridgford. We are looking for a skilled and experienced business manager to work as an integral part of our senior leadership team to ensure that our school is well resourced to continue its journey to being an outstanding provider of primary education.

The role will also involve providing support on an ad-hoc basis to other Trust SBMs as necessary. There are currently 22 schools in the Trust but this is rising every term!


The school has an admission number of 45. Our two Reception classes share a Foundation Stage Unit, which enables the two classes to work together, providing flexible and adaptable provision. In Key Stages 1 and 2 the classes are currently organised into mixed age phases. We have: 2 x Reception classes, 3 x Y1/Y2 classes, 3 x Y3/ Y4 classes, 3 x Y5/Y6 classes.


We are seeking a pro-active, driven problem solver with a ‘can do’ approach, who welcomes taking on a project or two alongside the usual day to day responsibilities. Flexible, friendly, professional and thorough. If this a challenge you would relish, we would love to hear from you.
