High Well School is a Special School which caters for a minimum of fifty three 11-16 year olds with an Education Health & Care Plan for severe and profound social, emotional and mental health needs as well as other learning difficulties. The School meets the needs of some of Wakefield’s most complex and vulnerable young people.
High Well endeavours to provide a nurturing environment with personalised support and specialist teaching to enable our pupils to re-engage in learning, develop their social and emotional skills and leave with not only appropriate qualifications but the skills required to succeed in life after school. This is reflected in our vision of ‘Preparing for Positive Futures’.
Due to an increase in pupil numbers the Governing Body are seeking to appoint a talented and committed mathematics teacher with a track record of excellent outcomes for pupils, who can plan and deliver an engaging and personalised mathematics curriculum in both KS3 & 4. The successful candidate will enjoy team work and have experience of working collaboratively with a range of staff and other professionals. The school welcomes applications from experienced secondary teachers from mainstream or special schools. A secure knowledge of both GCSE and functional skills qualifications would be an advantage.
Class sizes in High Well are restricted to ten pupils, with trained HLTA and teaching assistant support for every group to ensure pupils develop secure relationships with staff and enable personalised planning and delivery. The school offers a bespoke and comprehensive induction package for new staff followed up with extensive CPD. The successful candidate would benefit from opportunities for further professional development and career progression as we value and support our staff in all aspects of school life.
Visits to the school are essential. For more information, please contact Ms Louise Quinn Headteacher on 01924 572100.
