As a Teacher at  Avon Park School, you'll get to deliver the kind of education you always wanted to. We are looking for an experienced science teacher, with an excellent reputation for inspiring and invigorating learners. We believe science is a key subject in ensuring our young people become curious about their world and develop the skills and knowledge that will enable them to be critical thinkers. In addition to subject knowledge, skills and experience; we want someone who is empathetic, resilient and committed to fulfilling the potential of each and every one of our students, no matter what their educational needs. This includes emotional and social difficulties, autistic spectrum conditions and speech and language communication difficulties. You share our belief that all young people are capable of achieving great things.  

This is why we’re only interested in hearing from superb classroom practitioners. Those who take the National Curriculum and bring it alive in a way that’s meaningful and engaging to our students. Ideally you’ll have experience of dealing with complex education needs, as you’ll need to connect with our students – understanding what makes them unique and working to make a real difference to their social and emotional development. But none of this fazes you, as it’s what you’re passionate about. And why you’ll fit right in.

Independent, co-educational and truly inclusive, Avon Park School is registered to serve the needs of 70 pupils.  The school opened in November 2013 and provides an outstanding environment in which young people with complex educational needs, communication difficulties or challenging behaviour can reach their full potential.

For children and young people with complex, challenging needs, the level of care and education must go above and beyond. That’s what drives us, here at Witherslack Group. We are a leading provider of specialist education and care for children and young people with social, emotional and mental health needs, communication difficulties, complex learning needs and challenging behaviours. We have a reputation for excellence and of achieving the highest possible outcomes. In short, we’re creating life opportunities.


We know you’re going to do great things. For your hard work and commitment, we want to reward you with a salary and benefits package that’s among the best in our sector. You’ll receive a competitive salary, teacher’s pension (where applicable) and comprehensive induction and ongoing training, as well as extensive Group staff benefits such as Medicash Health Plan/Employee Assistance, Cycle to Work and tax free childcare vouchers. Witherslack conducts DBS Enhanced checks and covers the costs for all new employees.
