What skills and experience we're looking for

The successful candidate will be joining the Leadership team at an exciting point in the school’s development. The School’s bid for a new building was one of only 50 schools chosen as a part of the national schools building project. The new school building will provide state of the art accommodation for our students and open up exciting 21st century learning opportunities. The building will be completed in 2025. As Deputy you will have the opportunity to help to design the new curriculum suited to our pupil’s needs.

The senior team consists of a newly appointed Headteacher and an Assistant Head and although special school experience is desirable we are seeking a candidate with leadership experience and the potential to manage the demands of the role.

We recently expanded our school to include KS5 and this has been extremely successful. We now have two year groups in place and will expand further to include three cohorts in September 2023. Essex LA have agreed to provide the funds for purpose built post 16 accommodation.

Applications are welcome from teachers with experience in any phase of education, with a proven record of successful leadership, at Assistant Headship.

We encourage visits prior to submitting an application.
