We are an extremely active, lively and welcoming school, committed to giving all our children and young people the best possible opportunity to engage in learning, achieve, make progress, and maximise their communication, choice-making and independence skills. We have high expectations of the children, young people and ourselves, and we appreciate and celebrate our achievements fully.

Please apply only if you have QTS, or will have achieved this by August 2022. Applications are welcome from EYFS, Primary and Secondary teachers – as an all-age school we have considerable flexibility.
