Meadow High School: Achieving together

Meadow is a special school for students aged 11-19 with complex to moderate learning needs and/or autism. One of the UK’s largest special schools, we have been consistently rated as a Good school and are ready to achieve Outstanding status. The school holds a number of national awards including the SEN Specialist Schools Award and the International School Award.

Together with our Ofsted ambitions, under PSBP2 we have exciting plans to re-build and refurbish significant parts of the school in the next two years.

  • A talented and influential leader, committed to maintaining a culture dedicated to      continuous improvement, and to our values and aims;
  • A highly effective classroom practitioner who can inspire and coach colleagues to work at their best, and create innovative approaches to teaching and learning to meet the changing needs of SEN students;
  • A people manager and decision maker who will challenge the status quo and has the emotional intelligence and good humour to take others with them.

What we can offer you:

  • A vibrant, welcoming and friendly school, well established, and with good practices;
  • A school with students who enjoy school and thrive on their opportunities and      achievements;
  • A talented and experienced staff team committed to giving our students the best      opportunities;
  • A highly supportive and committed governing body.

If you are interested in this fantastic opportunity and you are the exceptional leader we are seeking, we would like to hear from you.
