Mount St Joseph is a vibrant secondary school situated in the South of Bolton serving a richly diverse community. Our pupils come from a variety of backgrounds including families newly arrived in this country and low income families. A number of our pupils have English as an additional language (37%) and our pupil premium is 42%. We place a strong emphasis on inclusion. Our ethos is underpinned by the gospel values of serving others, tolerance, compassion and forgiveness. As a community of learners, believers and friends, we are committed to the spiritual, moral, educational and social development of our community. We believe strongly in the power of high expectations of our students and of ourselves, and in the importance of personal goals that are meaningful to each individual. We know that every student has their own potential and we are determined to help them to fulfil it. We aim to enable all students to take part in exciting learning inside and outside the classroom, so that they can make rapid and sustained progress. We are proud of our team of dedicated staff who provide an inspiring, structured and supportive learning environment, in which every student is challenged to realise their full potential and encouraged to be ambitious for their futures. Our school continues to celebrate good results; they are attributable to the hard work and high aspirations of our students, the strong teaching from our committed and talented staff, the outstanding pastoral support and a clear commitment to raising achievement from all members of the school community. There is a strong emphasis on providing opportunities for students to further build their confidence, self-esteem, interpersonal relationships and to develop the resilience to overcome problems. We aim for all our students to enjoy their time at Mount St Joseph School, to have memories and friends that will last a life time and to leave with the qualifications, personal skills and attributes needed to be successful young adults. We are looking to appoint an outstanding enthusiastic leader to facilitate and encourage a learning experience which provides all pupils with the opportunity to fulfil their individual potential. The last Ofsted inspection concluded that we are a good school with outstanding leadership qualities. Our aim is to be an outstanding school - that is what we, our students and our whole community deserve and expect. This is an exciting opportunity for a person who is an excellent practitioner, who possesses the energy and enthusiasm to bring their skills and innovation to our community; a person who will be a role model and leader and ambitious for both students and staff.
