‘Great schools thrive because of the great people in them’.
As part of Prospere Learning Trust, we pride ourselves in being a great place to work, providing a supportive culture with opportunities to:
• grow and develop your career;

• to be recognised for the great work you do.
We continually strive to create a community where all our staff and students feel understood, valued and sense of belonging.
Working for Pioneer House
Pioneer House High School is a special school located in Northern Moor which provides 100 day places for 11 to 19 year old pupils, with a unique focus in preparing pupils with significant additional needs, to become independent and productive adults. The school has a strong vocational emphasis and pupils will have the potential to progress on to supported or independent employment/internships/apprenticeships or college.
The school was opened in 2016 and moved to a new, purpose built, site in 2017 which hosts a range of facilities including a one-bedroom bungalow, poly-tunnel and horticultural area, a purpose built catering and hospitality kitchen and construction area. We have recently expanded our site developing the student run Strawberry Fox Café, and additional learning and social spaces.
Following their first Ofsted inspection in 2019, Pioneer House was graded Outstanding in all areas.
Staff experience and wellbeing is important to us and we ensure that our staff feel informed and supported from their first day and throughout their experience as part of our school community.
We are committed to recruiting and retaining outstanding support staff and teaching staff to enable us to achieve our vision, delivering outstanding stimulating and engaging education which equips our young people with the skills to realise their potential.
“Leaders’ investment in their staff is paying dividends. Leaders are adept at talent spotting, committed to helping staff develop their careers and confident to let staff take risks and try things out for themselves. This approach has helped them establish a successful team.” Ofsted 2019
