The school expects for the students to take part in external competitions and we are currently members of the Surrey Special Schools Sports Association so organisational skills and the willingness to offer a range of sports and games is essential.
Previous experience of working with SEMH and challenging students is highly desirable but not essential and applications from colleagues currently in mainstream settings are greatly encouraged.
The school is extremely well supported in its continual drive for excellence through its Governing Body and Academy Trust and the school is committed to CPD across its staff teams.
Grafham Grange School is an academy for students with social, emotional and mental health challenges, located in the Surrey Countryside, 20 minutes from Guildford. We provide an all-round education for children aged 10-16.
The vision of Grafham Grange School and as such, the intent of the curriculum, is to be able to provide every child with access to an accredited education at a level appropriate to them, further tailored to meet their needs with opportunities for vocational learning. This combined with support to help them to learn strategies to deal with the anxiety and challenges they face, which impact on their self-belief, will enable them to succeed in education and beyond.
Applicants must have their own transport due to the rural location of the school.
