If you are committed to enriching and improving the lives of young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, if you would like to join a team which delivers an exciting and diverse curriculum which is not driven by the National Curriculum or exam outcomes, and if you want to work in a vibrant and Outstanding Special Academy – we want to hear from you.

The Iffley Academy is Oxfordshire’s largest Special School, and caters for pupils aged 11-18 with a diverse range of SEN, including Moderate Cognition and Learning Needs, Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. We have high expectations of our students, and are dedicated to removing the barriers to learning so students can achieve their full potential.

In return for your determination to make a difference to the lives of our learners, we can offer you the opportunity to work for an ambitious Multi Academy Trust. The Academy will move to new state-of-the-art buildings in 2020 and is one of two academies currently in The Gallery Trust: the second Academy is in pre-opening and will be located in North Oxfordshire.

We welcome applications from experienced teachers and NQTs alike. Experience of working with students with SEN is desirable but not essential, as extensive specialist training and CPD will be provided.

If you are shortlisted, we will take up written references before your interview so please provide permission for this and provide accurate phone and email contact details for your referees.
