About Us

Progress Schools is a multi-sited company, with each school registered with the Department of Education as an Independent School. We specialise in teaching KS3 and 4 students whom may present challenging behaviours or are not suited to mainstream education. We offer an alternative curriculum to meet the needs of each student on an individual basis.

Young people often come to us disengaged, with a lack of motivation for learning. Your role will involve leading a committed team of teachers who provide functional skills and vocational teaching, whilst encouraging learners to develop as people.

The successful candidate will be a confident individual with excellent communication skills and a great sense of humour, resilience is also essential.
