The Write Time Independent School are specifically looking for someone to teach Science & preferably Maths to Under-16 students who have complex needs (e.g. challenging behaviour, dyslexia, ASD, ADHD etc.). We are locally recognised as a preferred provider for being able to support students academically and pastorally into positive pathways. 

Wellbeing Benefits

The role attracts a reduced teaching timetable of 65%, with a maximum of 4 classes and 8-10 students per class. This means there is significantly more time for administrative tasks such as planning, preparation, & assessment (PPA), and additional responsibilities if this is sought. The maximum capacity of the school is 32 students so teachers will never have a workload greater than 32 students' worth. Behavioural support is a constant presence throughout everyday to allow teachers to maximise progression or students within the classroom. There is also large scope for creativity within the school to engage students. Do you have what it takes to join The Write Time? In order to apply for this, post you will need: -

  • To be a competent coordinator and motivator 
  • To have a minimum of 1 years’ experience as a classroom teacher, and have firm evidence of successful teaching outcomes (NQTs are very welcome to apply and will be treated fairly and favourably)
  • To be dynamic, creative, energetic, positive, and willing to communicate ideas appropriately
