At Priory Education we are proud of our reputation for delivering quality education and care services with positive outcomes for children and young people aged 5 to 25 who have experienced difficulties in their previous education placements.

Pennine House School is an independent co-educational day school for young people aged 12 to 18 with mental health challenges. Our students are all inpatients at Pennine House, which provides a CAMHS service across two wards for 22 children.

It is our intention that every student develops their courage, determination and skills as a learner, so they can re-engage confidently with their education on discharge. We liaise with mainstream schools and colleges; each young person has an individualised curriculum plan where progress is closely monitored.

Accreditation is framed in line with national benchmarks and encourages independent and group learning to foster self-belief and resilience. Safeguarding and supporting the young person’s individual needs are paramount to our ethos of recovery through supported and aspirational learning. Whilst in our care, young people have access to the full range of nationally accredited qualifications.


For all roles we require a minimum of two references.  References provided must cover the last 3 years, for all of our services we will need to request all references from where you have worked with either Children or Vulnerable Adults. Please be advised that references may be requested prior to interview for roles within our schools.
