St Marylebone Bridge School are looking to hire a Band 5 Speech and Language Therapist to join our growing team. We require a therapist who is passionate about supporting students with a diverse range of communication needs.

The role would be suited to a dynamic, flexible and enthusiastic therapist who hopes to develop their skills in a unique and supportive environment. Newly qualified therapists (or therapists soon to qualify) welcome to apply.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL

The St Marylebone CE Bridge School (SMBS) is a special secondary school for 11-16 year olds with speech, language and communication needs. We are a small school with only 61 students. Our students have a diverse range of needs, including DLD, ASD, speech disorder, cleft palate, aphasia and ADHD. This makes clinical learning opportunities wide and varied. We aim to create an environment in which our students can achieve their maximum educational and social potential so that they are prepared for adult life. Speech and Language Therapists play a core role in school life, by not only supporting students and families directly, but by working closely with education staff to create a communication friendly and specialised learning environment.

Our school now offers a speech and language therapy outreach service which supports local primary schools. The successful applicant would be trained to be an integral part of our outreach service, meaning some working days may be spent in local primary schools. This is an exciting opportunity for a therapist wanting to develop a breadth of paediatric skills.
