About Fosse Way School
Fosse Way School is an outstanding special school located in Radstock, just south of Bath on the edge of the Mendip hills. It is extremely popular and has 220 pupils on roll. Our pupils have moderate or severe learning difficulties, with many having communication and language difficulties, including a diagnosis of autism. Due to its popularity, it has been oversubscribed for a number of years. The school worked closely with an active parent support group which was successful in its bid to set up a new school – The Mendip School.
Fosse Way School is a member of The Partnership Trust, which is a multi-academy trust.
Fosse Way School runs The Partnership Teaching School, which supports schools of all sectors across the Mendips and City of Bath. We were the first school in the UK to set up a Project Search work-based skills programme based at the Bath Royal United Hospital and are looking to further expand our training opportunities for post 16 students by providing an offsite Enterprise Centre in addition to our highly successful café located on the school site. Fosse Way also has a residential provision for up to 12 students.
We would welcome applications from people who may currently be working in mainstream schools. A full training and support programme is offered to those who may not have previously worked in a special school.
