Wishmore Cross Academy is a very special learning environment that provides a happy, caring community where everyone is encouraged and supported to achieve their goals.  We are a residential special school in Chobham, Surrey, for boys aged 9 to 16 years who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties. We admit up to 70 boys and can offer up to 14 residential places (including extended days) on a flexible basis for up to 4 nights per week. 

We are situated within easy reach of the M25 and M3 and, although in Surrey, is very close to Berkshire and Hampshire. Ofsted judged our Residential Provision to be ‘outstanding’ for the last six years.

We are looking to grow and add to our outstanding team of teachers, support staff, assistant psychologists and leaders, and we would welcome applications from individuals looking to build a career within SEND as well as from colleagues with prior experience.

We offer:

  • Tailored career paths from Learning Support roles to teacher training
  • Graduate opportunities to develop your expertise in the field
  • Shadowing opportunities for support staff to observe, develop and train in the field of education psychology.
  • An opportunity to join a SEN special school at the forefront of developments in emotional and mental health
  • An academy that is an expert in the use of Restorative Justice Practices
  • An academy that leads on the use of Restraint Reduction Practices

We offer an open invitation to visit us, speak to key staff and have that all important conversation, no matter where you are in your career to date. This will be on Wednesday 14 March 2018.
