What skills and experience we're looking for:
The Promise School is a new, all through specialist SEMH setting for pupils aged between 4 and 16 that opened in September 2022. The school initially opened with 40 pupils but over time will grow to up to 100 pupils. It initially opened in temporary accommodation and currently benefits from experienced interim leadership.

We seek an inspirational and inspiring leader with a commitment to nurture-based provision and a determination to ensure that all pupils have the best possible experience of education in a calm, safe and caring environment. We are looking for a well-qualified professional, ideally with direct experience of SEMH pupils and with a passion for supporting and enabling them to succeed socially, emotionally and academically.

As a Trust we found everything that we do on our core moral purpose, cooperative values, and ambition to make tangible differences to the lives and life chances of our Trust community members.
