Our School 

The Haven School is an independent special school for young people who have an EHCP for social, emotional and mental health difficulties.  This is a small school for 25 pupils aged between 11 and 19 who require a therapeutically informed environment in which to access their education.  Our pupils may have attachment difficulties linked to childhood and ongoing trauma, and there may also be a diagnosis of ADHD or ASC. Pupils may present as angry and aggressive or be withdrawn and anxious, and/or have problems developing successful relationships with peers and adults. 

We have a very supportive staff team at The Haven who all work together for the welfare and progress of our pupils. We have consistently favourable reports from Ofsted, parents, carers and other professionals and we believe it is a great school to work in.

If you would like to visit the school before applying please ring Mrs S. Gould (deputy head) to make an arrangement.


For all roles we require a minimum of two references. References provided must cover the last 3 years for all of our services.  We will need to request all references from where you have worked with either Children or Vulnerable Adults. Please be advised that references may be requested prior to interview for roles within our schools. 


The Haven School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All applicants must be willing to undergo safeguarding screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and disclosures with the relevant body at an enhanced level.
