Further Information

The Orchard Hill College Academy Trust (OHCAT) is a multi-academy trust which became the sponsor of Nightingale Community Academy on 1st September 2016. The Trust is a specialist provider with a strong track record in contributing to improving the education offer for young learners with Special Educational Needs (SEN).

Nightingale Community Academy caters for learners aged 5-19 who have Social, Emotional and Mental Health as their primary SEN need. Some learners also have Autistic Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, or other learning difficulties. At Nightingale Community Academy we are committed to raising the expectations of our learner group, removing barriers to learning and delivering attainment at the highest level.

We are looking for someone with drive, creativity and a passion for teaching to join our team and contribute to our fast improving school. Academy Status brings new opportunities and we are looking for new team members who can add value by delivering ‘quality first’ learning experiences that challenge and engage. Experience of working with learners with SEN in either a mainstream or special setting is desirable but not essential. What is imperative is that you have high expectations, a love of challenge and a determination to make a difference to the lives of our learners.
