Fixed term contract until August 31st 2021 (with potential to extend)

Pendle Community High School and College are seeking to appoint an experienced, enthusiastic and ambitious teacher to join our outstanding secondary special school and college for generic learning difficulties. We have a thriving school population and currently have around 145 students on roll (ages11 -19). These students have a combination of moderate, severe and profound learning difficulties, including autistic spectrum disorders and other associated needs.

Pendle Community High School is situated in purpose-built accommodation, co-located with a mainstream secondary school, providing a wealth of opportunities for social and educational inclusion. The successful candidates would be joining a highly committed and dynamic staff team making a real difference to the lives of young people with special educational needs.

If you have experience of working with children with a range of special educational needs (including moderate and severe learning difficulties) and managing and delivering a highly differentiated curriculum (from early p-levels upwards), this post may be an ideal opportunity for you.

Informal, pre-application discussions with members of the Senior Leadership Team are warmly welcomed and can be arranged by emailing Joanna McCullough – HR Admin on hradmin@pchs.lancs.sch.uk
