Further Information

St Dominic’s School is part of Orchard Hill College & Academy Trust (OHC&AT), a specialist Trust with 12 Academies and seven College Centres across London, Surrey and Sussex.

We are a special school in Surrey and provide education for pupils and students aged 7-19, typically with a primary diagnosis of Autism or social communication difficulties. Our school is located in the beautiful village of Hambledon, close to Witley, Milford, Guildford and Godalming. We have views of the Surrey hills and plenty of outdoor space, including access to the common and a Forest School site.

Whilst we value the history of our site and main building, we are also in the process of modernising our environment and we have a number of exciting projects underway, including a refurbished therapy provision and a second Sensory Integration Therapy room.

At St Dominic’s School we believe that all pupils and students should leave our setting ready to ‘achieve ambitious goals and live life to the full’. Our therapists are integrated into the wider staff team and have created a bespoke Needs Led Curriculum that includes dedicated curriculum time to developing pupil and student social interaction and functional independence. We also have a strong emphasis on ensuring quality of life for both pupils and staff and are launching a comprehensive piece of work to ensure that emotional and mental wellbeing are at the heart of what we do.

No two days are the same at St Dominic’s School and you will need creativity, perseverance, good teamworking skills and a sense of fun.

In return, we offer excellent support from colleagues and staff, commitment to CPD, and access to internal and external training.

If you believe you can help our learners to fulfil their potential at school, at home and in their communities and are looking for a fresh challenge, then this role may be just what you are looking for.
