Do you have a progressive and visionary approach to leadership and management and the excellent interpersonal skills to thrive in an autism specialist school? Are you are committed to developing students and staff?

With a strong track record and wide-ranging experience in either mainstream or special schools, you will demonstrate exceptional leadership and managerial skills. These will be complemented by highly developed interpersonal skills gained through successful inter-agency working. What will set you apart will be your relentless commitment to achieving high standards of teaching and learning and your passion for improving outcomes for our students.

We are looking for a Head Teacher who is inspired by our accomplishments and sees this as an opportunity to lead us to greater success. Doucecroft School is an independent school with approximately 50 students with ages ranging from 7-19.
