To support SEND students to access the curriculum to enable them to achieve their full potential.

If you would like to make a real difference to our students in a very supportive environment, we would love to hear from you.

It is an exciting time to join us.  When Ofsted visited in March 2022 they were very clear about the very high quality of education at Haileybury Turnford.

“Pupils love the fact that their school is friendly and welcoming.  They say that it is a school where they can be themselves.  This is because it is a very tolerant community.  Pupils feel very safe.  They attend regularly and promptly and take great pride in presenting and organising their work carefully.”

“The school helps pupils to become better citizens.  Teachers support pupils well, but pupils also support each other.”

“Pupils know that teachers always expect them to work hard.  They are grateful for this.  Pupils know that they can always learn in lessons.”

“Leaders have brought improvements to many areas of the school since the previous inspection, including behaviour and the curriculum.  Parents are very appreciative of the way the school has changed.”

“The school is a calm and orderly environment.”                                                [Ofsted, March 2022]

We insist on the equal treatment of all current and prospective colleagues and will never condone discrimination on the basis of age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, gender identity, or marriage and civil partnership.

Haileybury Turnford is also equally committed to being an anti-racist organisation and we encourage you to view our Black Lives Matter statement which gives clarity on our anti-racist stance. In our relentless efforts to be an anti-racist organisation, we recognise the negative impacts of under representation and lack of diversity in the education system and in all aspects of our society. Therefore, for recruitment into any post, where we have 2 or more candidates of equal merit, candidates with protected characteristics will be given advantage over candidates without such characteristics. This is sometimes referred to as a ‘tie-breaker’ and is referred to as ‘positive action’ in the Equality Act 2010.
