Are you ready to shape the future of autism education in Southwark? 

Are you ready for a unique opportunity to join our outstanding leadership team?

Due to expansion at Spa Bermondsey and the opening of Spa Camberwell in September, we are now recruiting Assistant Heads to start in the summer or autumn term. We are looking for outstanding SEN teachers with leadership potential, who share our passion for achieving the very best outcomes for our pupils. You will be responsible for ensuring the highest possible quality of learning and teaching in a key stage.

Spa Bermondsey is an outstanding special school, which provides a high standard of education for pupils aged 11-19 with autism. Spa Camberwell is opening in September 2020 for pupils aged 4 – 16 with autism. We need a primary Assistant Head from the summer or autumn term to be at the forefront of this exciting development.

The Primary Assistant Head for Spa Camberwell will need to have taught in a primary special school. The Secondary Assistant Head for Bermondsey will need primary or secondary special school experience.  

We are a friendly organisation with a positive ethos, and are committed to helping all our pupils realise their full potential. ‘The personal development of pupils is at the heart of the school’s work’ (Ofsted Dec 2015). 

We welcome visits to the school. Further information about these posts and arrangements for visits can be made by telephoning either Simon Eccles or Steph Lea on 020 72373714.
