As Deputy Head Teacher at Queensmead School part of the Witherslack Group, you’ll have the chance to lead and shape our school and deliver the kind of education you always wanted to.

Working with the Head Teacher, you will set the vision for the future of the school, ensuring we have the right people and plans in place to see that our young people – whatever their needs – leave the school feeling proud of what they’ve achieved and what they’re capable of. And with the backing of the broader management team, a range of supporting specialists and state-of-the-art-facilities, we know we’re all set for a bright future.

That’s why we’re looking for someone who’s pretty unique. Ultimately, you’re an outstanding teacher who has a genuine passion and working knowledge of SEN. But, as importantly, you’re someone who is resilient, innovative and has the type of enthusiasm that’s infectious, so that you bring about change in a positive way. You’re also sensitive, respectfully challenging, patient and kind: just the type of leader our young people, staff and community can relate to.

For children and young people with complex, challenging needs, the level of care and education must go above and beyond. That’s what drives us, here at Witherslack Group. We are a leading provider of specialist education and care for children and young people with social, emotional and mental health needs, communication difficulties (autistic spectrum conditions, Asperger’s Syndrome, speech, language and communication needs), complex learning needs and challenging behaviours.  We have a reputation for excellence and of achieving the highest possible outcomes. In short, we’re enhancing life opportunities.

Like all Witherslack Group schools, Queensmead House School offers state-of-the-art learning resources and well equipped environments. Parts of our large, picturesque school overlook Windsor Castle and the school building itself is breath-taking. Add to the fact that we’ve installed amazing new learning spaces and a great supporting team and it all adds up to a truly uplifting teaching environment.
