Haybrook College Trust provides a flexible and creative range of education provisions in Slough for over 200 pupils, aged 11 – 19, who have been excluded or who exclude themselves from local education. All the young people who attend the College have significant and complex Social Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties (SEHMD). The College includes a KS3 and KS4 PRU and Millside School, our SEMH Special School. 

We are looking to appoint a dynamic and ambitious qualified teacher who can maximise outcomes for young people with increasingly complex needs. Candidates will deputise for the Head of Millside School when required. A large capacity for work and a good sense of humour is essential, putting the needs of vulnerable children at the heart of all their decision making.

There are currently 54 young people on roll at Millside School, all of whom have a Statement of Special Educational Needs, or Education Health and Care (Plan EHCP), for SEMHD. However, an increasing number have been diagnosed as having ASD and many of these have additional diagnosed special needs such as a learning difficulty or a speech and language and/or a social communication difficulty.

Our website will provide you with a useful overview of our school and further details:
