Stormont House School is an unusual and widely-respected special school whose pupils achieve up to GCSE/BTEC levels. We became one of the first outstanding schools in the country in 2005 and have improved at each of the 3 full inspections since then, most recently July 2018. This position plays a vital part in leading us towards our vision of ‘Achievement for All in a Unique World-Class School’. If you are passionate about the difference an excellent school can make to young people’s ability to learn, express themselves and become active global citizens, please read on.
We need a first-class primary teacher to mainly teach one of our Year 7 classes, who are all still working within the primary National Curriculum. We set out to combine the very positive aspects of primary education with the specialist subjects of secondary in order to provide the best quality education possible. We have two Year 7 teachers and one has just been promoted to senior leadership as a result of her professional development here. We don’t expect anyone to arrive with all the SEN skills already in place, but we do expect high-quality teaching, authentic reasons for wanting to work in a special school and openness to learning.
We expect our students to make the best progress possible; socially, emotionally and academically. The staff are excellent, the facilities are great and the students are terrific. This role is better-suited to a candidate that has recent and relevant primary teaching experience.
Please look at the uploaded documents and ring the Headteacher, Kevin McDonnell on (020) 8985 4245 for an informal discussion about the position. Don’t worry if you don’t have special school experience: very few of us did before we came here!
Visits to see the school in action are encouraged. Please call Brenda Vanriel on 020 8985 4245 to book a space from 9.00-10.30am Weds 15 or Thurs 16 May.
Closing date 9am Monday 20 May / Interviews scheduled for Friday 24 May
