Head Teacher Recruitment


The Governors of Step by Step School are looking to appoint a Headteacher to lead and motivate a highly skilled professional team at this independent specialist school for children and young people with Autism Spectrum Disorders. This is a new role which has been created as a result of the impending retirement of the School Director in 2018.

We support pupils aged 4 to 19 and currently have 28 pupils on role with a current capacity of 30. We are looking to expand our pupil number to 35-40 in the coming years. All of the staff work hard to provide children and young people with an education that will prepare them for a successful transition to life beyond school.

Currently either a Head, Deputy Head or experienced senior leader, you will have experience of leading and inspiring a multi-disciplinary team to deliver excellent teaching and learning for pupils with special education needs. With a staff of over 50, many of whom are experts in the field of autism provision, your leadership and people management abilities are key considerations. You also have experience supporting a Governing Body and of working with statutory bodies. Above all, you share an absolute commitment to the School’s mission and values.

If successful, you will play a vital role in helping to lead a team of people who are determined to make a positive difference to children and families affected by autism. We look forward to receiving your application.

Yours sincerely

Stuart King
Chair of Governors
