What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed Assistant Headteacher to join our Senior Leadership Team in a school that is consistently oversubscribed.

You should have a clear vision of how you can support the school values to ensure every student achieves the best academic progress, whilst developing character and becoming compassionate individuals.

You will be joining the Leadership team of the Headteacher, two Deputy Headteachers, three Assistant Headteachers and the Business Manager all of who have full portfolios of responsibilities to ensure The Earls High School, its students are staff receive the best support possible

What the school offers its staff

As a school we are extremely proud of our badge, you will see it everywhere around the school. We are proud because it sums everything that we believe in. The motto on the badge says ‘Ut Fili Lucis Fiatis’ and it means ‘to become children of the light’, and that is the reason we exist as a school. We believe that every young person who walks through our doors has enormous potential. Our staff work hard to help students to reach their best and become enlightened, or as our motto says, become children of the light.

Everyone at The Earls High School supports students to make as much academic progress as possible so that they are equipped for the next stage of their education or career. We believe that it is our duty to help them develop character too, so that they can communicate effectively, have the resilience to carry on when things get difficult, work effectively as member of a team and develop their leadership skills. We want students who leave us to be kind, compassionate and caring individuals; people who will support and help their neighbours and make a significant positive contribution to Halesowen or whatever community they choose to live in.

If we develop these three qualities in the young people who choose to come to our school, we can feel content that we have done our job well
