Are you looking for a new challenge? 

We are offering a rare and exciting leadership opportunity to lead a highly acclaimed special school into its next stage of development and to play a key role in the future leadership of the Special Partnership Trust. Pencalenick School is set in a beautiful location close to the cathedral city of Truro in the heart of Cornwall. It provides a creative and ambitious centre of specialist learning for 120 pupils with a range of complex learning and communication needs aged 9-16. 

Due to the retirement of the current Headteacher, the Trustees are seeking to appoint a new Headteacher for Pencalenick School who shares their single-minded ambition to constantly progress and enhance the provision so that it continually improves outcomes for pupils and the whole community.

The Trustees welcome applications from school leaders who have not yet worked in a special school, but who have had some experience with children or young people who have additional needs which have been supported in mainstream. 

The selection criteria will be based on the Job Description and Person Specification contained in the Headteacher Information Pack. Please demonstrate throughout your application your relevant experience and skills.

To find out more, please visit the school and/or Trust websites. We would encourage potential applicants to call Andy Barnett, CEO, for a confidential, informal discussion. Prospective candidates are also very welcome to arrange a visit to the school.

A contribution towards relocation costs may be considered in special circumstances.

Special Partnership Trust schools are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff to share this commitment. 

We welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of gender, race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or age.
