Abbey Court caters for pupils aged 3-19 with Severe Learning Difficulties, and is currently located on 2 Strood sites; Nursery & Primary (Cliffe Road) and Secondary & Further Education (Rede Court Road). Facilities include an on-site school farm.

We seek an exceptional and enthusiastic colleague to join our Outstanding School in this key strategic role.

The successful candidate will be highly motivated and committed to providing leadership across the school’s business and administrative functions.  Excellent interpersonal skills will be essential as the postholder is expected to work collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders.
