Lead the most well-resourced schools in SEN

Lead and learn with us

As the UK’s leading specialist educational provider, we are always looking to attract new leaders to enable us to inspire more and more young people to find their own story of success. 

As we continue to grow, both in terms of the number of settings we have and also the regions we operate in, we will maintain our sector leading Ofsted ratings, educational outcomes and levels of therapeutic support by ensuring each of our schools is led by a strong and aspirational Head Teacher.

Our schools and learning centres benefit from excellent staffing ratios, small class sizes, highly resourced learning environments and endless academic and vocational options, delivered both within our school settings and also our vocational centres.

Supporting our leaders

At Wiherslack Group, our Head Teachers are supported by Regional Directors, who have experience holding headship posts and other departments across our Group, who provide support. 

This structure of support allows Head Teachers and their Senior Leadership Teams to focus on and deliver the best outcomes for children, young people and their families.
