Further details about the role

This is an exciting time for Exeter House School and Somerset Road Education Trust.

We have vacancies in different areas of the school including Early Years, AS and working with our older students.

We are a supportive and caring school where we strive to enable everyone to be the best they can be. We not only believe in the extraordinary but seek it out in every student we work with and every staff member who works for us.

Exeter House is part of the Somerset Road Education Trust: a unique collaborative multi-academy trust, formed in partnership with St Mark’s CofE Junior School and Wyndham Park Infants’ School who share our campus. We also have an offsite vocational centre for our older students and three Resource Bases in our partner schools. At present the school caters for approximately 177 young people between the ages of 4 and 19 who have PMLD, SLD or Complex Needs. A significant number of students also have a diagnosis of autism.
