Executive Headteacher – The Central Hub, Brighton & Hove

We are seeking an innovative leader to develop our provision for children and young people needing a short or long term alternative to their mainstream school or a Special School place to meet their Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs.

This is an exciting opportunity to develop a more integrated and coherent service across the Pupil Referral Units, the SEMH school (Homewood College), the services who support children and their families, the mainstream schools in the City and the parents and carers, as key partners.

We want to raise the profile of this provision so that both the education community and local communities see ‘The Hub’ as a partner in building a positive future for all young people and this more vulnerable group in particular.

You will be:

  • an experienced leader of change management,
  • an outstanding professional leader in education,
  • an outstanding practitioner in safeguarding,
  • an excellent communicator with fellow professionals and parents and carers,
  • an ambassador for our provision.

If you think this is the challenge for you we would like to hear from you. For an informal conversation, to arrange a visit or to request an application for this role, call our advising consultants
