Are you are a committed, creative and effective leader who believes that all children, with complex special needs, whatever their history, deserve opportunities to make exceptional progress in their learning?

Do you enjoy a vibrant and stimulating environment where no two days are the same, working with a dedicated and dynamic team of colleagues, who look for creative and responsive solutions to complicated issues? 

We are an outstanding primary special school for pupils with social emotional and mental health needs with residential provision, serving the west of Hampshire. We use small class groups with skilled staff to meet the needs of our pupils and ensure they make outstanding progress both emotionally and academically.

We are looking for an outstanding teacher and leader with both experience and understanding of complex SEN who can work alongside and lead an exceptionally talented team.

As a sector leading provision supporting other schools and developing training and practice within the region, we can also support your development through our multi professional team, offering you experiences to specialise and develop. Together we can continue to make a difference to the lives of pupils across the county and be part of shaping their future.
