Head Teacher

This is a rare and exciting leadership opportunity to lead a highly acclaimed special school into its next stage of development and to play a key role in the future leadership of the Special Partnership Trust. Pencalenick School is set in a beautiful location close to the Cathedral City of Truro in the heart of Cornwall.

We provide a creative and ambitious centre of specialist learning for 180 pupils with a range of complex learning and communication needs aged 11-16. In addition, Pencalenick School is the umbrella organisation for pupils based in a number of Area Resource Bases in mainstream schools across Cornwall.

Trustees are seeking to appoint a new Headteacher for Pencalenick School who shares their single-minded ambition to constantly progress and enhance the provision so that it continually improves outcomes for pupils and the whole community.

The school provides imaginative learning opportunities, focusing on the abilities of all pupils, irrespective of need, ensuring high expectations and challenge alongside care and support in equal measure. Pencalenick School has a strong reputation, with places always in high demand.

The school is set in a beautiful learning environment with further scope for development. It benefits from an excellent 25- place weekday residential provision.

The new Headteacher will build on an excellent tradition, bringing fresh challenge and innovation to lead the school forward into its next phase of development. Key to the success of the school has been a committed and talented team of staff who embrace change and continually challenge their own practice by looking for innovative ways to enable the young people to achieve their aspirations and play a meaningful role in the community. The new head teacher must share this ‘can-do’ spirit and model it in their daily practice and leadership.
