H3 (Hub, Home, Hospital) Teaching Team provides education to students of all Key Stages who are unable to attend mainstream school for medical or mental health reasons. We teach in a variety of locations which are predominately The Hub, a child’s home or on the hospital ward. We teach from 1:1 to small groups and need to be flexible and responsive to the children we are teaching.

Our role is to support young people who are unable to attend mainstream and to reintegrate them back into school or to move them on to a different setting. All pupils attending H3 have been referred by their Consultant Paediatrician or Children & Adult Mental Health Services. The Centre works to ensure that every student is enabled to achieve the best possible outcomes, regardless of health, learning needs or disadvantage.

H3 is part of Herefordshire Pupil Referral Centre (HPRS). HPRS is made up of three centres; St David’s (KS4 PRU), The Aconbury (KS3 PRU) and H3 (All through medical PRU). Each of the three centres has its own Head of Centre each of whom have strategic lead for one or more whole service responsibilities.

The service benefits from a supportive Management Committee, an effective Senior Leadership Team and a dynamic team of experienced, committed staff.

We are now looking to recruit an enthusiastic and committed Higher Level Teaching Assistant to contribute to the vision for the service and support our pupils in a range of subjects, including English and Mathematics, as well as being able to offer pastoral care. 


You will be joining a team which works hard to create a positive and caring community that puts children at the heart of everything we do.
