Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Permanent

 More House School provides an exceptional, mainstream education for boys with Specific Learning Difficulties. Providing a transformative education recognised as ‘Outstanding’ in our March 2016 school Ofsted inspection, and in successive Ofsted inspections over more than a decade, we offer a specialised learning environment for 470 day and boarding boys from Year 4 to Year 13. Our pupils are taught to recognise their strengths and develop their self-belief so that they achieve independence and extraordinary results at GCSE, BTEC and A Level, above the national averages.


All boys who attend More House are individually timetabled, with many receiving support through the on-site Learning Development Centre. The very broad curriculum affords opportunity to discover their strengths, challenging them to fulfil their academic and extra-curricular potential. Judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in its last four school inspections, our most recent inspection (March 2016) graded More House School ‘Outstanding’ overall, and ‘Outstanding’ in each of the six sub-sections of the report. More House is CReSTeD approved, listed in their Specialist Schools category. 


The role will be based in the Learning Development Centre (LDC) which houses a supportive team of 11 Speech and Language Therapists, 5 Occupational Therapists, and 8 literacy/numeracy tutors. The department has a growing national reputation and strong links with universities, regularly providing educational placements for Speech and Language Therapy students from the University of Reading. We have recently introduced a sensory integration facility and actively encourage multidisciplinary working and communication between teachers and LDC Staff. More House is an inclusive environment and LDC Staff frequently have opportunities to attend school trips, enabling them to gain a holistic picture of the students and to get to know them better. There are also opportunities to attend residential trips; recent trips have included Ypres, the New Forest and a water sports centre in Wales.

The school is committed to professional development and training is provided within school during our comprehensive in-service training programme and regularly throughout the term. Attendance of relevant external training courses or central excellence networks (CENs) is encouraged.
