The majority of our young people have complex medical needs, and many have been out of education for a significant period of time prior to joining the Academy. We offer a full-time curriculum to young people from EYFS to KS5 and our aim is always to enable them to ‘close the gap’ and to make outstanding progress during the time they are with us.

You should be passionate about developing and supporting the needs of the whole child and committed to enabling all pupils to achieve their potential. We are looking for a qualified teacher with tenacity, positivity and experience of teaching the subject at KS3 and KS4. You should have QTS and a track record as a consistently good practitioner. Duties include teaching a variety of young people ensuring that work is differentiated to meet the specific needs of pupils who are admitted to a hospital ward setting.
