Our children work at expected National Curriculum levels and study a range of qualifications including: AIM Awards; Functional Skills; BTEC and GCSEs.

· Be passionate about enabling every child to fulfil their potential;

· Be dynamic with the ability to make learning stimulating, exciting and fun;

· Be a positive and supportive mentor to students;

· Be willing to develop their knowledge of SEMH and trauma based attachment;
