Oaklands is an outstanding special school serving the London Borough of Hounslow that provides specialist education to students with severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple difficulties and autism. From September 2018 we have a Primary school (New Oaks), Secondary school (High Oaks) and a specialist independent SEN College provision (Great Oaks). We can cater for students aged from 4 to 25 across the Oaklands group.
Oaklands is at an exciting point in its development. Last year we relocated to our purpose built new school building (close to Osterley Tube Station and other public transport links) that offers state of the art facilities for our students. In time, the primary and secondary schools will be based on two sites with New Oaks Primary moving back to Woodlands Road once refurbishment is completed.
Our student numbers are rapidly expanding and as a result, we have a number of teacher vacancies in our Sixth Form and Secondary Provision working with students who have Autism and Severe Learning Difficulties. We would love to hear from teachers, newly qualified and those with experience. You will need to possess the desire and motivation to make a difference to our students’ lives. We believe that all of our students are capable of making outstanding progress and we want to appoint individuals who share our belief. Please refer to the job description and person specification for full details of the role and the skills/experience required. Only applicants with QTS should apply.
We value our employees. We offer a comprehensive induction and Inset programme, a pension scheme and employee assistance programme.
