About the role

Are you passionate about making creative and engaging lessons? Do you love working with animals and the outdoors?  Do you have or would like to gain experience working with SEN? Would you like to work with small groups of pupils? Work with our lovely pupils  in our stunning settings and teach hands on. 
Our fantastic SEN school in East Sussex is looking for new people with a passion for Land-based, Equine, Small Animals and Pets and/or Forest School to join our friendly team. 

We offer Level 1 and Level 2 BTEC Qualifications in Land-Based Studies and Horse Care to our key stage 4 and 5 pupils. Pupils in key stages 2 and 3 complete units from the AQA Unit Award Scheme. Pupils of all ages take part in Forest School.

Career and professional development is supported. Experience of teaching/supporting students with special educational needs is desirable but not essential.

Headstart School is an independent special needs school which was established in 1999. It has a proven track record of success with learners on the Autistic Spectrum including those with complex needs. We have students from age 5 to 16 and following onto our Post 16 courses up to the age of 21.


Headstart School has the benefit of two sites: both situated in the East Sussex countryside, one on the outskirts of the village of Ninfield and the other at Golden Cross. The school admits up to fifty students across both sites complemented by a large qualified experienced staff team. This high ratio of qualified staff to student and our unique approach is what we believe to be our strength and the main reason for our success with students who have struggled in other academic environments.

Headstart School is committed to providing considered and carefully developed individual and personalised education to students who have found conventional learning a challenge. Headstart School uses innovative methods of teaching across a wide range of subjects with an emphasis on outdoor learning enabling students to identify and work to their own potential with enthusiasm, in a safe and happy learning environment.
Suitable candidates will be interviewed on receipt of their application as part of an ongoing recruitment programme, therefore prompt application is advised. Should the post be filled earlier than expected, this advert will be removed.
