We are a specialist residential school located in Christchurch. The school was a finalist in the 2019 Prime Minister’s Excellence in Education Awards. Our three values are: Building Relationships, Being Resilient and Reflecting.

We are looking for an experienced teacher who shares our values, is passionate about bringing out the best in challenging students and is energised by giving young people opportunities for success.

We offers a 24-hour, 7 day a week curriculum which is supported by specialist resources, individualised programmes and highly trained staff, all in a stable and nurturing environment. Students benefit from a differentiated and adaptive curriculum. They have extensive opportunities to participate and succeed in the school and wider community. The curriculum is specifically designed to balance academic learning and living skills, and to significantly enhance students’ social and emotional competencies. The school curriculum and vision are both focused on supporting students to independently reintegrate into their community.

 The successful applicant will have strengths and experience in:

  • Building relationships that centre on learning, with young people aged 8–18 who present complex needs and challenging behaviour
  • Relating with all staff in a collaborative way to support students
  • Co-constructing and monitoring individual educational programmes that support the school values and focus on readiness to learn, literacy, numeracy and social skills
  • Adapting plans at short notice to best meet the students’ needs.

In return our college offers:

  • A supportive team of day school and residential staff who work together to promote learning
  • The intrinsic rewards that come with building good relationships with challenging students.
