Our young people have social, emotional and mental health needs and therefore resilience and a good sense of humour would be beneficial.

The successful candidate will be joining a Trust and school that continues to be ambitious in its drive to improve outcomes for our pupils. You will join a highly dedicated and professional staff team and be part of a supportive working and learning environment, where your professional development is highly valued.
