SAT has a proud history of supporting non-selective schools to out-perform grammar schools in Kent.

PCS is a fully inclusive school with a Special Facility for students. There is a higher than average % of students with SEND need throughout the school and we offer Small Group Access Teaching to students where required.

At PCS, achievement is a focus for all within an inclusive and supportive school community. We develop confident, happy, ambitious students who take pride in their learning and flourish. Students will be socially aware and leave our school being academically successful, having the skills and qualities to face new challenges.

We provide constant, high quality CPD and all staff are passionate about sharing good practice.

This school is also committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to complete a DBS check and the post may be offered only on receipt of two good references.

Peacehaven Community School is committed to equality of opportunity. We positively welcome applications from all sections of the community.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our vibrant school on the South Coast, near Brighton. Life at Peacehaven Community School does not stand still and we constantly seek innovative ways to improve school standards.
