  • A passion for improving students’ lives and opportunities
  • High levels of ambition and drive for outstanding performance from staff and students

  • The opportunity to make a real difference to our students
  • A thriving community of students and parents/carers

The school is committed to safeguarding children and all applicants are subject to an enhanced DBS check.

Although applications will be processed as they arrive, an earlier closing date may be made before this if a successful candidate is found.

Cantell School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children in school. We believe that our students have a right to learn in a caring, supportive and safe environment; our staff are vigilant for signs of any student in distress and are confident about applying the processes to alleviate any problems or concerns.
