Sir Charles Parsons School is a secondary school (11 - 19) catering for students who experience significant and profound learning difficulties. This includes students whose behaviour may at times challenge those supporting them. The school was judged by Ofsted to be an ‘outstanding school’ after its last four inspections in October 2006, June 2010, March 2015 and January 2019.

Due to the school’s continued growth and increasing student numbers we are looking to appoint 4 teachers for September 2021. Post-holders will have pastoral responsibility for a class of students but will teach a range of subjects to students of all ages across the school.

While the school would welcome applications from those with an interest in delivering science, maths or life skills, experience in delivering these subjects is not essential.
