Inner London Main/ Upper Pay Range + SEN1 + TLR2a (Currently up to £52,071 for U3, £43,779 for M6)

Our current subject leader moved abroad after 12 years here, so there is a rare opportunity to shape teaching, learning, pupil progress and inclusion in a three times-outstanding special school in a brand new building with excellent facilities. Please read the personal message from the Headteacher on the TES website!

Stormont House School is an unusual and widely-respected special school whose pupils largely achieve up to Entry Level and Level 1 GCSE/BTEC levels. We had our third ‘outstanding’ inspection in March 2014. This position will play a vital part in leading us towards our vision of ‘Achievement for All in a Unique World-Class School’. If you are a first-class teacher and passionate about the difference an excellent school can make to young people’s ability to learn, express themselves and become active global citizens, please get in touch.

We offer a diverse and vibrant curriculum, including the National Curriculum, which is tailored to meet pupils’ needs by exciting, supporting and challenging them. We expect our pupils to make the best progress possible; socially, emotionally and academically.

We set out to combine the very positive aspects of primary education with the specialist subjects of secondary in order to provide the best quality education possible. You might have mainstream, special, FE or PRU experience: wherever you have been you’ll have made a success of it for your students in terms of their subject learning and wider progress. Your personal attributes, values; attitudes; and openness to learning will make all the difference here.

Our students come to us from mainstream primary where the gap (in learning, socially and emotionally) between them and their classmates had been growing as time went on. Many of them have relative strengths in the practical subjects, which play a strong part in our curriculum.

Please look at the uploaded documents and ring the Headteacher, Kevin McDonnell on (020) 8985 4245 for an informal discussion about the position. Don’t worry if you don’t have special school experience: very few of us did before we came here!

School visits on 29 September (morning) and Wednesday 4 October (afternoon). Please call Brenda Vanriel on 020 8985 4245 to book a space.

Closing date for receipt of emailed applications is Wednesday 11 October

Interviews: Wednesday 18 October
