Our Schools
Our Eastern Region Schools offer education placements for children and young people with very complex needs, often living in complex circumstances. Many of our learners have diagnoses of Autism and have experienced exclusion from mainstream settings. The Eastern Region Schools currently are:

* Quorn Hall School, Leicestershire
* Hardwick House School, Loughborough
* Wilds Lodge School, Rutland
* Gretton School, Cambridgeshire

Travel between sites will be required, however we encourage flexible working where possible and expenses are paid from the base school (closest school to candidate).

About Us
There is a commitment to continued professional development for our staff and a specific CPD budget to support psychologists. We anticipate the psychology provision will grow over the coming years with potential to recruit both assistant grade and qualified psychologists. This is an exciting time to join our psychology provision in schools and shape the developing service.

All our schools are committed to offering a relational approach to education, informed by specialist knowledge of Autism and SEMH. Children and Young People who attend our schools have frequently experienced disrupted relationships as a consequence of their needs not being understood or met in other settings. We are committed to offering learners reparative experiences of relationships in order to enable them to meet their full potential.
