Are you an outstanding, creative classroom teacher? Do you want to develop your career in a thriving and expanding school, working with students who have complex needs?
We are a national charity looking for an ambitious and inspirational Teacher with a passion for students’ learning.
This is a full time post however, part time may also be considered. 41 weeks per year. Please state your preference on your application.

You will join the amazing team at MacIntyre School in Wingrave, a vibrant and diverse 41-week residential/day school with superb facilities and resources. We support children and young people aged 10-19 who have severe learning disabilities, behaviours that challenge and communication difficulties. You will lead a class of up to 6 children many of whom are on the autism spectrum.
You will inspire and lead a team of learning support staff and be key to ensuring all teams (behaviour, residential, therapy and families) work holistically to provide the best possible outcomes and experiences for our children and young people. Please note, some of our students require assistance with personal care.

Awarded "Good" at our Ofsted inspection, here are some of the reasons you'll enjoy joining our team;
"Adults never stop wanting the best for the pupils. They see what each pupil might be capable of and work patiently and determinedly towards it. This is a school of aspiration and positivity."
"Leaders know their school well and have a deep understanding of the complex context. The strong leadership from senior leaders has already resulted in much success. Staff are extremely proud to work at this school, and rightly so."

About you

You will hold QTS and will ideally have completed your NQT year, although we would consider an exceptional Early Career Teacher (ECT) with some relevant experience. Experience of TEACCH and PECS would be an advantage. Your experience might be in special schools or mainstream education, either primary or secondary.
We are looking for people who celebrate differences, and we strive to make all our staff feel included, valued and respected.

About us

MacIntyre is a national charity which supports over 1,200 people with a learning disability and/or autism.

MacIntyre School in Wingrave offers an innovative and challenging curriculum individually tailored to provide each student with the best possible learning opportunities and outcomes. Learning takes place throughout the waking day whether at school, in the residential houses or out in the community, where we provide an exciting range of off-site learning activities. We promote independence and effective communication in everything that we do.
Learning activities may include: physical exercise (. climbing, swimming, walking, water sports), work experience (. on a farm), community access (. in shops or cafes) or class based activities (. music and dance & creative arts).
