Full time and part time Teachers to teach across the curriculum from September 2019

MPS + SEN Allowance

Ravenscliffe High School and Sports College in Halifax has been judged by Ofsted in five successive inspections, as an outstanding Special School most recently in October 2017.  The school caters for 182 pupils aged 11-19 with a wide range of learning and physical disabilities. Our numbers continue to rise.


We are seeking to appoint enthusiastic teachers to teach across all Key Stages. The ideal candidates will have either Special School or early years experience and a knowledge of Core subjects. However, candidates with a background in other sectors will still be considered including NQT.  We are looking for someone with an attitude that supports the school’s ethos as a principle requirement. Whilst the posts initially are for one year, for the right candidates these could be permanent.


Someone with an interest in the following would be beneficial:

  • Complex learning difficulties and disabilities (CLDD) including multisensory impairment and this could be suitable for an established experienced teacher or someone keen to develop their career in this field.
  • Delivering a range of subjects across the timetable within a Special School setting, with confidence and competence in early literacy and numeracy development.


This is a great opportunity to join a friendly and committed staff team working with a fantastic group of young people with additional needs.  The posts will provide the right candidates with a unique opportunity to contribute significantly to student learning and progress, help build on our national reputation and extend our positive links with the local community. Training and support will be provided.  The school is now a two site provision one mile apart.


Visits to the school are encouraged and warmly welcomed and will be possible on either Thursday 7 February 2019 at either 9.30 am or 1.30 pm or Tuesday 12 February at 9.30 am or Wednesday 13 February at 1.30 pm.  Please contact Trish Hoyle, School Administration Manager on 01422 358621 or email if you would like to visit.

Job packs are available from Trish Hoyle by email –  to whom completed forms should be returned by email only quoting post reference number by 12 noon Monday 25 February 2019.   Interviews will be held week commencing 11 March 2019.
