Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to Harbour School Dorset (HSD), part of Delta Education Trust.

Opening a new school is both an exciting and challenging task. Our current students, parents and staff have been apart of our founding cohort and have developed the school from a theoretical plan to a reality, albeit one that has been in a temporary building for three years!  However, we are very excited that we moved in to our brand new building in February 2022 and will be increasing our cohort of students from 30 to 80.  Our new building is purpose built to meet the needs of our students, including being set in a beautiful location with lots of outdoor space.

We offer our students a curriculum which is not only broad and balanced, but also exciting and challenging. Values and skills are taught together in a language rich environment which is supportive and safe but also inspiring and exciting. Our school encourages students to begin to take responsibility for their own learning whilst recognising and respecting the needs of others.  We are very excited that our new building has the facilities to offer both an academic and vocational curriculum, as well as a range of therapeutic and enrichment activities.

Our staff team provide the very best opportunities for our students, and due to our expansion into our new building, we are currently recruiting to a range of positions.  If you’d like to join us, please click here.
