We have a wonderful opportunity for two inspirational leaders to join Solent Academies Trust as the Heads of School for two of our academies from Easter 2020.

One of our Heads of School is relocating to Cambridgeshire and the other has been appointed to a promoted post as CEO of another special school trust.  They leave both schools in a very strong position, both with a judgement of Ofsted outstanding and a strong track record.

Mary Rose Academy is an Ofsted outstanding special school for 146 pupils aged between 2-19 years who have severe, profound and complex needs, many of whom have autism and/or complex medical needs.

Redwood Park Academy is a special school for 141 pupils aged between 11-16 years who have complex learning needs, many of whom have autism and other associated difficulties, judged outstanding by Ofsted in November 2019.

Working with our Executive Headteacher/CEO and the Heads of School from the other academies, the Heads of School will become part of an inspirational and dynamic team, working together to ensure that our pupils access the very best education possible.  We pride ourselves on having high standards and are delighted that 3 out of 4 of our schools are judged Ofsted outstanding with our 4th school on a fast track journey to excellence having joined us as a sponsored academy in January 2019.

These significant and important posts need leaders who care passionately about the education and wellbeing of pupils with special educational needs and their families.  They need to have high aspirations and the skills to lead a talented and dedicated team of staff and to be motivated to build on our culture of continual improvement in positive and happy places of learning where everyone is valued.

We welcome all applicants who meet the criteria in the accompanying recruitment pack to apply for either of these exciting roles.  An application pack can be downloaded from our Trust and school websites:
