The school operates within a multi-disciplinary framework; working closely with a wide range of professional including psychiatrists, psychologists, doctors, nurses and therapists.

- An outstanding senior teacher, with middle leadership experience or an existing Assistant Headteacher seeking a new challenge;
- A talented and influential leader, committed to maintaining a culture dedicated to continuous improvement, and to our values and aims;
- A highly effective classroom practitioner who can inspire and coach colleagues to work at their best, and create innovative approaches to teaching and learning.
- An ability to collate, analyse and evaluate complex data across a range of cohorts.
- A people manager and decision maker who will challenge the status quo and has the emotional intelligence and good humour to take others with them.
What we can offer you:
- A vibrant, welcoming and friendly school, well established, and with good practices;
- A talented and experienced staff team committed to giving our students the best opportunities;
- A highly supportive and committed governing body;
- A chance to improve the lives of young people with complex and serious mental health issues.
