Working With Us


Hedgewood School do accept people wishing to work as volunteers at the school. Interested parties do need to make an appointment to come into the school and have a meeting and a tour of the school. All volunteers would need to have an Enhanced DBS Disclosure completed before they commence volunteering .Some people decide to do some volunteering prior to deciding whether they wish to apply for a post in school, this often proves to be a successful way for both parties to start feeling comfortable with each other – as working at Hedgewood School is not for everyone!

Work experience and work placements

We welcome people who are looking for work experience or work placements in both schools and universities, however we do receive a large number of requests and can only manage a certain number at any one time, so please try and make your applications well in advance and try not to be too disappointed if we are unable to offer you what you were hoping.


All roles for which we are advertising will also be available via our vacancies page to the left. Details of how to obtain more information and an application pack for each role will be provided alongside the advert.


All new staff receive a detailed induction programme of training including Fire Safety, Health and Safety, What is Autism?, Communication, Positive approaches to managing behaviour and keeping yourself safe etc. Further training opportunities for staff across the school are also excellent. Please download our New Staff Induction Policy for further information.
