Come and join our growing team and be part of the successful ‘Boudica Schools Trust’.  Eaton Hall Specialist Academy has an Ofsted rating of Outstanding for the last ten years.

The Academy is a  residential special school for boys in the age range 7 – 16 with social, emotional and mental health difficulties.

The Academy runs a very strong staff support and development programme. The successful candidates will be reliable, persistent and loyal, with a good sense of humour and strength of character.  The academy is looking for people who have a variety of interests outside the curriculum that would lend themselves to leading activities with children.

The Academy teaches pupils from primary through to secondary and therefore it is important in your application to state the age range you prefer to work with. There is availability in both areas as the academy staff are flexible as to the areas that they support. This type of flexibility helps with achieving promoted posts.

Pupils arrive with disrupted educational experiences and complex difficulties and our team will be responsible for ensuring that they leave with superb outcomes academically, socially and behaviourally.  

Our school shares the vision of our sponsor, the Boudica Academy Trust, that improving the life chances of all pupils has to be at the heart of all we do.  To achieve this Boudica firmly believes in valuing and championing all members of staff employed throughout the trust. 


These permanent Teaching Assistant posts will be 32.5 hours per week, term time only plus 5 training days. The weeks worked are 39 weeks; therefore payment is pro rata over 12 equal monthly payments per year.

The successful applicants must be prepared to undergo any further training as requested by the Trust and will be subject to an enhanced disclosure through the Disclosure and Barring Service. This post is likely to come under the requirements of the Childcare (Disqualification) 2009 Regulations, therefore you will be required to complete a declaration form to establish whether disqualified under these regulations.
