Protocol Education are proud to be working closely with an independent specialist day school for boys and girls aged from 5 to 19. The setting deals with a wide range of needs across 3 sites in Wakefield and have exciting plans to expand. Their dedicated team work together to ensure successful outcomes for pupils who often arrive at the school with a troubled view of education and life.

As this setting is continuing to grow, we have an opportunity for the right candidate to join this dedicated and hard-working team.
