Peacehaven Community School is a Swale Academies Trust (SAT) School who welcomes applicants who want to develop their careers and explore the opportunities that working within an established academy trust can bring. SAT has a proud history of supporting non-selective schools to out-perform grammar schools in Kent. Here in East Sussex, the Trust is applying those same principles to areas where students have not had the advantages given to their peers in more affluent areas.
PCS is a fully inclusive school with a Special Facility for students with a speech, language and communication specialism. There is a higher than average % of students with SEND need throughout the school and we offer Small Group Access Teaching to students where required.
At PCS, achievement is a focus for all within an inclusive and supportive school community. We develop confident, happy, ambitious students who take pride in their learning and flourish.
Students will be socially aware and leave our school being academically successful, having the skills and qualities to face new challenges.
We look to instil Aspire, Believe and Achieve throughout our school community. We achieve this by enhancing the hopes of our students by inspiring a sense of craftsmanship, re-drafting and improving what we do, aiming for excellence and pride in our work. Self-confidence comes from the ability to succeed, even though the journey may have been difficult.
We encourage our students to have strategies to see through problems and complete the task together as part of a community. As our students gain in self-confidence they raise their aspirations, believe in themselves and reap the rewards of doing this. We want our students to rise to challenges and perform at their best, this will then give them solid foundations for their future careers beyond PCS.
This is an exciting opportunity to join our vibrant school on the South Coast, near Brighton. Life at PCS does not stand still and we constantly seek innovative ways to improve school standards. You will have the ability to motivate and inspire students and will be relentless in the pursuit of the highest standards of progress for every student, regardless of their ability.
