We are seeking an ambitious and inspirational teaching professional. We wish to appoint an exceptional individual who has the necessary skills and attributes to have a real impact upon our SEND provision at Bohunt Wokingham. Potential is as important as experience so applications are invited from teachers interested in training in the role as well as colleagues who are already qualified and experienced. We are a new Academy that opened in September 2016 with Year 7 only. We moved into state of the art buildings in summer 2017 and have grown to 380 students. We are heavily oversubscribed.

Our Student Support department is small but growing with 4 full time LSAs this year and some specialist external provision for individual students. The vacancy arises following the current post holder’s relocation closer to home.

Are you able to:

  • Inspire and innovate?
  • Nurture and develop (yourself as well as others)?
  • Commit to, and raise further, high achievement and motivation?
  • Optimise learning for those with additional needs?

We will:

  • Provide a supportive learning environment
  • Offer you the opportunity to make a difference
  • Actively promote your career development – you may already be targeting a middle leader position and we will support you accordingly
