Day to day tasks may include planned repairs to the infrastructure of the building, emergency repairs and cleaning as required. Gritting of the site in colder weather, daily checks around the building, gardening, painting, locking and unlocking the site. The role will also require the coordination of external contractors and involvement in the letting of our building to external users.

We are a high-performing, SEMH special school which was judged as Outstanding in every area by Ofsted in November 2016. We are not remotely complacent about this and are committed to ensuring that the quality of provision we offer to our students is consistently excellent. We believe that such sustained success is a team effort and every member of staff contributes to that level of excellence. We are a relatively small school, but we still have a distinctly ‘family’ atmosphere. Visitors to the School often comment on the friendly and supportive ethos.
