We wish to appoint for May 2017 or sooner a teacher with an outstanding track record who is ambitious and is ready for an exciting new challenge. Our existing autism provision is co-located at Heartlands High School; we cater for students between 11-16 years old, with severe to moderate autism and related learning needs.
We are currently embarking on the exciting journey of opening a new Free School in September 2017, providing 104 places for children between the ages of 5 and 19 on the autistic spectrum.

If you relish in being able to make your mark with innovative and creative practice and you are excited about making a real difference then this role will provide you with the scope to achieve this.
The post holder will be responsible for leading a secondary class team ensuring there are high quality and effective learning opportunities for all students. Class sizes are small and our experienced teams offer support with a collaborative approach to teaching. The post holder will also be expected to work closely with our multi disciplinary teams.
As we move into our new school in September 2017, there will be scope to change roles and or age groups as we aim to open both primary and post 16 departments.
