What the school offers its staff

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Alsop High School.

I am delighted that you are considering joining our community.

Alsop High School is the largest secondary school in the vibrant city of Liverpool, with 1500 students across Key Stage 3-5.

We have been at the heart of the Walton community for over 100 years. As the Executive Principal of this warm and wonderful school, which is part of Omega Multi Academy Trust, I feel both proud and privileged to lead our mission of ‘Achieving Excellence Together.’

At Alsop High School, excellence means seeking 1% improvements every day in all that we do, for both staff and students.

We are looking for talented, committed and passionate colleagues to join us on this journey to excellence.

New colleagues often highlight the support from others and the team ethos is a real strength of our school.

Built upon our three core values of Ambition, Respect, and Community and aligned with the Omega Multi-Academy Trust mission, we strive to provide the best possible school experience for every child and to be the best employer we can be.

We consider the workload and wellbeing of our staff to be our greatest resource, which means that the we place a high value on managing the amount of work given to staff and ensuring that their overall wellbeing is considered. I will always expect our staff to treat the children in our care as they would their own.

One of my favourite quotes is, “children’s learning is not a rehearsal; they never get a second chance.” We want ambitious staff who are passionate about maintaining the highest standards every day to ensure that every moment of students learning is as effective and enriching as possible. We aim to cultivate a warm, family-like work environment and seek to recruit and retain dynamic and inspirational staff who share our vision and commitment.

As part of the Omega Multi-Academy Trust, colleagues benefit from strong collaboration, network opportunities and a broad and varied professional development programme at every level. We plan to "train staff so well that they can leave but treat them so well they don't want to.“

We can offer flexible working arrangements and a wide range of CPD opportunities for staff. While we love working in education, we recognise its challenges, which is why your wellbeing is always a priority for us, from emotional support to regular workload management.

As part of a trust, we offer all staff exclusive access to our wellbeing and benefits app “Omega MAT Plus+.” This app provides a gateway to a wide range of exciting benefits, including an Employee Assistance Programme with 24/7 health and wellbeing support, access to GP video appointments and discounts and savings at many high street stores and big brands.

We believe that a diverse and inclusive workforce is essential, drawing from a range of talents, backgrounds and experiences and striving to represent the community we serve.

Ultimately, it is the children and young people who will benefit the most, so this is the perfect opportunity to work in an innovative and creative school. We strongly encourage all potential applicants to visit us or get in touch for an informal conversation prior to the interview. We are happy to welcome visitors for an informal tour at any time. I look forward to meeting you.
