The successful applicant will be class teacher to students with a range of Special Educational Needs that include SLD, ASD and some challenging behaviour. An ability to establish excellent relationships with students and deliver a wide range of subjects to students with very low level learning is essential.

About Seven Hills School

Seven Hills School is a co-educational secondary special school co-located with a Catholic High School near the centre of the city. We cater for pupils from 11 to 19 years of age. The school is maintained by Sheffield Local Authority (LA).

All pupils have learning difficulties and many have other associated difficulties relating to communication, sensory, ASD, physical and/or medical needs. In common with many other special schools, pupils admitted have increasingly complex needs. A high proportion of pupils are from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. Approximately 25% of pupils are from an ethnic minority background.

The mission and purpose of Seven Hills School is to provide high quality inclusive education for young people aged 11 -19 with learning difficulties, physical disabilities and complex and multiple learning needs, in a safe and stimulating environment.

Seven Hills School is an inspirational community, which nurtures talents, shares learning and celebrates life. Students are challenged to achieve their full potential in all areas
