Peacehaven Community School (PCS) is a vibrant, over-subscribed school on the south coast, just outside Brighton.

Life at PCS does not stand still and we constantly seek innovative ways to improve standards. For example, we have just launched the PCS Baccalaureate pathway for aspirational, motivated students from Year 8 onward.

We look to appoint staff with the ability to motivate and inspire students and who will be relentless in the pursuit of the highest standards of progress for every student, regardless of their ability.

PCS is a happy, stimulating place to work and you will be joining a hard-working and dynamic staff team, who are supportive of one another and have a ‘can-do’ approach to challenges. We are no ordinary school and believe nothing is impossible!

We pride ourselves on our excellent induction programme. We provide constant, high quality CPD and all staff are passionate about sharing good practice.

As a Co-operative Trust School we place values at the heart of everything we do and were proud to be awarded Level One Rights Respecting School status by UNICEF, who found our ethos of mutual respect ‘inspiring’.

The local area offers a high quality and varied lifestyle for people of all ages. Peacehaven is located in East Sussex, nestled between the sea and the South Downs, providing spectacular scenery and endless opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities. For culture, shopping, nightlife and fast trains to London, Brighton is just a stone's throw away.
