Who and where are we?

Peterhouse School is a non-maintained Specialist School for pupils with ASC aged 5-19 in Southport.  We have been rated as Outstanding by Ofsted and are currently over-subscribed.  Peterhouse is owned and managed by Autism Initiatives, a registered charity providing specialist services for autistic people and their families and carers throughout the UK and Ireland. 

The school is located in the Victorian seaside resort of Southport, famous for its beautiful and expansive coastline and its annual Flower Show.  Southport is a 45 minute drive away from the bustling cultural centres of Manchester and Liverpool.

Who are we looking for?

Due to the retirement of the current Headteacher, we are looking for a caring and enthusiastic professional who has the courage to take on an already outstanding provision, and who has the insight and drive to maintain this status through keeping the school at the forefront of autism and educational practice.  As well as being the substantive Headteacher of Peterhouse, you will use your vision and skill to further develop other education services within Autism Initiatives, including our Flexible Education Service and The Haven, a smaller school in North Wales.  You will have a good understanding of Autism, strong values that align well with our ethos and a willingness to adapt to our approach.

What do we offer?

Operational support from Autism Initiatives Head Office, allowing you to focus on the quality and strategic development of our school and services.  CPD opportunities.  Teachers Pension.  Employee Assistance Programme.  Occupational Health Programme.  Counselling Supervision.  Laptop & smartphone.  Relocation support. 

Want to know more?

Contact Peterhouse for a frank and honest conversation with our current Headteacher about the opportunities and challenges that this role entails.

“Peterhouse School and Autism Initiatives are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all their staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All post holders are subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check with barred list information, the cost of which will be met by Autism Initiatives.
