Oaklands is an excellent special school serving the London Borough of Hounslow that provides specialist education to students with severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple difficulties and autism. From September 2018 we have a Primary school (New Oaks), Secondary school (High Oaks) and a specialist independent SEN College provision (Great Oaks). We can cater for students aged from 4 to 25 across the Oaklands group.


Oaklands is at an exciting point in its development. We recently relocated to our purpose built new school building (close to Osterley Tube Station and other public transport links) that offers state of the art facilities for our students. In time, the primary and secondary schools will be based on two sites with New Oaks Primary moving back to Woodlands Road once refurbishment is completed.

The successful candidate will be a team player and have experience of working with young people that have complex medical needs. Applicants must be physically fit and willing to undertake all aspects of personal care including toileting and feeding. We believe that all of our students are capable of making outstanding progress and we want to appoint individuals who share our belief. Please refer to the job description and person specification for full details including the skills/experience needed.

We value our employees and offer a comprehensive induction and Inset programme, a pension scheme and employee assistance programme along with other wellbeing benefits.

Oaklands is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and anyone applying to work at the school is expected to share this commitment. This position is subject to a satisfactory fully enhanced DBS check, health clearance and references being received.
