The Holmewood School is a small, friendly independent school meeting the needs of 7-19 year olds with high functioning autism and Asperger’s Syndrome, language & communication difficulties and SpLD. We are part of the Cavendish Education group. We can offer you a welcoming environment with a good holiday package (requirement to work just 4 weeks within the school holidays over the academic year) and excellent professional training & development.
We meet the needs of young people with high functioning autism and Asperger’s Syndrome, language & communication difficulties, and specific language difficulties aged 7 to 19 years.
We are looking for a dynamic, flexible and enthusiastic Speech and Language Therapist to join our multi-disciplinary team and work seamlessly with our education staff. This role involves providing integrated SaLT services to young people in our school based over multiple sites which includes a specialist 6th Form provision.
We are located in North London with our main site is conveniently situated directly opposite Woodside Park station on the Northern line. Our Sixth Form Centre is currently located in Finchley Central but is subject to a move in the near future. We work closely with the other schools in our group, have extensive community links and believe in ‘thinking differently’ and being as creative as possible in our teaching.
You will be committed to providing the best opportunities for our students and ensuring every young person is supported to achieve their full potential. You will demonstrate a flexible approach to education and therapy, a willingness to get involved in all aspects of school life, and the ability to work under pressure with young people that can challenge us. You will have previous experience of working with young people with autism in other educational settings. Experience of working with young people with behaviour needs or mental health needs would also be desirable.
