Hamilton School is an SEMH (Social, Emotional, and Mental Health) Special School in Reading educating up to 64 students with Education, Health Care Plans (EHCP). Our mission is to recognise each and every one of our students as individuals, and to nurture their potential, developing the whole child through a therapeutic approach. This means that you would have to be a resilient character who is able to remain positive when dealing with challenging behaviour. The school is currently going through a transition with a purpose-built school opening in February 2022 for up to 96 students.
We are looking for an open-minded, curious, kind and inspirational all-round Teacher to work at Hamilton School. Applications from candidates with primary training, those with an interest in sport, health & fitness and experience with SEMH are particularly welcomed.
In January 2020 Hamilton School joined the Maiden Erlegh Trust family of schools, whose motto is “schools for the community, schools as a community”. The aim for every school in the Trust, whilst espousing their values and ethos, and having a core of common policies and procedures, will serve its own community’s needs in a bespoke way and also create a feeling of community within its own school. In that way all the potential and talents of every child and every member of staff will be nurtured.
Being part of the Maiden Erlegh Trust also offers a range of career opportunities in its vibrant and successful schools. The Trust has a proven track record of supporting ambitious staff to middle and senior leadership posts and can offer Specialist Leader of Education and school improvement opportunities to the right candidates.
Professional development is a strength, thanks to our Teaching School. We offer a flexible CPD programme which staff can tailor to their own needs which includes coaching and training for new entrants to the profession and to support career returners. We are very happy to discuss flexible working arrangements including part-time working and job-sharing.
We would love to meet you and show would around. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org who will help organise this.
