Kingsway Park High School was established in 2010 and joined the Altus Education Partnership in February 2022. We are now a very popular oversubscribed school (1350 students in years 7-11 and 190 staff) located in central Rochdale. We are very proud of the high-quality facilities, resources, and environment that we provide for both staff and students.

At Kingsway Park High School we strive to transform students’ lives. Through our relationships, we endeavour to instil both resilience and an intrinsic motivation to become confident, creative and highly skilled students, capable of meeting tomorrow’s challenges head on. We strive to establish a culture rooted in achievement and progress that encourages our students to grow academically, personally and socially; equipping them with the values of equality, fairness and openness. We pride ourselves on our relentless drive to achieve outstanding, high quality teaching that provides a safe, supportive and encouraging environment for all our students to be able to realise their academic potential in pursuit of educational excellence.

We are looking to appoint an experienced teacher with a passion for teaching SEN students and those with SEMH needs. You will work predominantly in our specialist provision known as Kingsway Avenue as well as teach some mainstream lessons to other small groups of students across KPHS. Kingsway Avenue has been created to cater for children with additional needs – some of which are supported by EHCPs, some at school level and some who receive a bespoke provision based on individual need.

This role is open to someone with a passion for inclusion and may be a primary specialist looking for a new challenge, a SEND teacher looking to explore what mainstream can offer for students with a range of SEND needs, or a secondary teacher with an interest in developing transition, SEND provision or Inclusion. The successful candidate will be deeply committed to the idea of inclusion in its widest sense and believe in setting high expectations for learning and progress for all young people, regardless of need, as fulfilling their potential is our mission.
