Salary: £65k-70k with placement dependent on experience

Donaldson's is a grant aided residential and day special school for children and young people who are deaf, hearing impaired and/or have communication disorders. Although the children and young people have a wide range of abilities, some pupils and students also have a range of complex additional support needs which can act as barriers to learning.

The school provides a fusion of education and care across 24 hours for children and young people from 2.5 to 18 years, 39 weeks of the year. There is also excellent nursery provision and an externally funded, adult employability project for young adults up to the age of 24 years.

Over the last year, the school has gone through a period of change and is now seeking a dynamic and successful leader to take the school forward and to help shape its future direction.

To find out more about this opportunity and how to apply please visit our website:

Closing date: Friday 25th July 2014

The School welcomes application from all sections of the community, irrespective of age, race, gender, sexual orientation or disability, and particularly welcomes applications from the Deaf Community.
