Information about the School
The Flagship School is a purpose built special school in Hastings offering a nurturing, inclusive environment for seventy two pupils with SEMH and associated needs. We have high expectations for each child to leave as a confident young adult who is well prepared for the future.

Our School is an ambitious project developed in close partnership with East Sussex County Council. When fully open, Flagship will aim to deliver outstanding education and care focusing on offering pupils the opportunity to build their resilience for the rest of their lives. There will be an emphasis on improving emotional, academic, vocational and physical skills leading to meaningful, sustainable outcomes for life.

The Flagship School will relentlessly drive for success, celebrate achievement and promote a climate of possibility. All members of the school community will be kind, polite and respectful and have the opportunity to access stand-out education and care that will provide the platform for meaningful outcomes and improved life chances.

The curriculum presents formal, informal and enriched opportunities for development and progress. This enables the children who graduate from Beckmead to become independent, connected members of the communities where they live and the workplaces that may employ them.

The Beckmead Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children and young people so expect all staff and volunteers, as well as those who work on the premises, to share this commitment. As part of our safeguarding commitment, appointment to any post is subject to receipt of satisfactory references, medical clearance to include the
ability to participate in Physical Intervention and a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Check as well as evidence of the right to live and work in the United Kingdom.

All applications should be submitted on The Beckmead Trust Application form. Please note that we do not accept CVs. All enquiries and completed applications should be sent to
