The Southfield Trust is currently in an exciting phase of development including the opening of a new Free School.
Our aim at Hazel Court is to achieve the best possible outcomes for our young people for their future lives. Hazel Court is a positive environment with a very welcoming and highly supportive whole staff team approach.
The successful candidate will be:

- Collaborative in their approach towards supporting the wider work of the school and Trust
Applications are encouraged from applicants with experience of supporting pupils with a range of special educational needs. NQTs are welcome to apply.
Due to present restrictions, though visits are encouraged, please phone the school from 7th September onwards to speak to one of the SLT to find out about our school and the work we do.
