We are three special schools, a secure unit, a large countywide alternative provision and one of five teaching schools within East Sussex.

New Horizons, St Leonards-on-Sea, is seeking to appoint an innovative, enthusiastic and effective Senior Teacher with empathy towards children with SEN.

This is a rare opportunity to join the School and be part of our expanding team, which provides an outstanding service for pupils in the Hastings and surrounding area.
