The school is organised into two phases primary and secondary and each is in turn split based on needs and attainment levels. ASD (autistic spectrum disorders), SLD (severe learning difficulties).

The chosen candidate will demonstrate energy, enthusiasm and the ability to teach effectively. You would be teaching a modified curriculum which seeks to prepare the young people for adult life through highly personalised learning programmes. The school strives to deliver a curriculum which motivates and inspires the students , so that through their enjoyment of learning, they can make outstanding progress. The curriculum has two key elements; Functional skills including life skills, communication, literacy and numeracy for the 21st century and creative learning delivered through art, drama, play, dance, music and poetry.


You will be supported by a highly dedicated and experienced team of LSAs in class who will help you hit the ground running due to their training and in depth knowledge of the pupils. This role may involve some personal care. Enthusiasm, willingness to learn and emotional resilience are essential attributes.
