The Quay School is an OFSTED rated Outstanding, National Teaching School Hub and a progressive educational establishment that supports young people through difficult times in their lives.

Our different sites provide for very different needs, and we are currently looking to employ a Pastoral Learning Mentor to support Ks3 pupils at our Harbourside site. This job will involve working as the key adult for a specific young person to support them in class as well as at social times.

The students at this base have been excluded or are at risk of exclusion from mainstream school and have behaviour, emotional and social issues.

The Quay School offers a great deal of CPD opportunities. We take great care to recruit the very best people so that the services we provide are first class. We believe that the best work gets done in an environment that's enjoyable and which values, supports and encourages the development of its employees.
