About Hele's School
I take great pleasure in welcoming you to Hele’s School! We are a school with a tradition of academic excellence, high aspirations and a big heart. A school that students and staff are proud to attend. A school where we never compromise our insistence that everyone is valued, learns, enjoys and achieves. Expectations for staff and students are high, but very simple; work hard both to do things right and to do the right thing…even when no one is looking!
Our mission is to support and challenge each individual, adult or child, to be the best they can be. We have a ‘no excuses’ philosophy based on growth mindset principles, which reinforces our belief that all of us can always improve, and that nothing is impossible. Quite simply, it isn’t about being ‘the best’ at something but being better than we were yesterday or today. It is for this reason that recognising and celebrating endeavour, as well as achievement, is something we hold dear.
We work hard at providing an inclusive, calm, and purposeful learning environment, and aim to ensure all students have opportunities to enrich their learning, to discover new skills and interests, and to master others through providing a breadth of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities to excite and engage young people, wherever their interests or aspirations may lie.
I am extremely proud to lead a dedicated and enthusiastic team of staff who are passionate about working with young people and are committed to ensuring that those entrusted in our care get the best life chances possible. Everything we do is shaped by our determination to ensure that each and every child has a positive and memorable experience of school; that they thrive, flourish and, crucially, are happy. We focus on opportunities to develop teaching and learning at every turn and, importantly, teachers at Hele’s have a resolve to be the best they can be in the classroom; our core purpose being to remove barriers to learning so that young people can be inspired, can aspire and can achieve. In return we expect a buy in to our belief that we all have an active role to play in making our school a great place to be, which manifests itself in every child displaying the highest standards of commitment to learning, pride and care.
Hele’s is a community committed to personal and professional growth of all, with dedicated staff and governance at local and trust level, supportive families and committed students. I have no doubt that the right candidate will be happy, supported and fulfilled being part of Team Hele’s, and will take great pride in what we can achieve together for our community and for each other. I do hope you are inspired to apply for this post and I look forward to reading your application.
Thank you in advance for the time and emotional investment that I know you will commit to this process.
With very best wishes.
