If you share our ethos and values and believe ‘being unique should be celebrated’ and want to achieve the best possible outcomes for our pupils, then we are the school for you.

The Woodlands School is an all age (Reception to Year 14) special school for pupils with Autism Spectrum Disorder or Social Communication Difficulties with associated learning difficulties, currently operating across 2 Campuses in Milton Keynes, in September we will move onto a 3rd Campus in Galley Hill.

You will inspire your pupils to enjoy a range of subjects, bringing each lesson to life, engaging them in a love of learning.

We are looking for an outstanding teacher, who is dedicated to the welfare, safeguarding and achievement of every child; who wants to make a difference and knows the pathway that will allow pupils to do so.

If you have not worked in SEN before, but are enthusiastic and motivated to make the move, we will give you additional training and provide support. If you would like to join an enthusiastic, friendly and hardworking team then we look forward to receiving your application.
