What the school offers its staff

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Alsop High School. I am both proud and privileged to be Headteacher of our caring, dynamic and truly amazing school. It is an exciting opportunity to be joining our school at this time, as we are on a journey to excellence and our school motto of Achieving Excellence Together embraces this vision. We are looking for talented, committed and passionate colleagues to join us on this journey to excellence.

Alsop High School is a school at the heart of our community, steeped in history as the largest High School in our vibrant city of Liverpool, and we have been serving the families of Walton for over 100 years. We are “Team Alsop” and our strong sense of community is evident across our staff body, with new colleagues often highlighting the support from others as a real strength of our school.

Built upon our three core values of Ambition, Respect and Community, and in line with our Omega Multi-Academy Trust mission and aims, our school vison is to provide the best possible school experience for every child. We are ambitious for every student, with high standards and expectations underpinned by compassion at the core of our drive for students to be successful; quite simply put, my personal mantra of: Rigour With A Smile.

We are committed to our students mastering the knowledge, understanding and skills to ensure that they achieve great things, fulfil their potential and leave Alsop articulate, resilient, compassionate and culturally aware. Our talented and committed colleagues go above and beyond to ensure that every student is provided with the challenge, opportunities and support to be successful and achieve to their full potential.

Built upon a research and evidenced based approach to curriculum development and teacher pedagogy, we have built a knowledge rich curriculum and believe that if children understand the purpose of what they are learning and why they are learning it, not only will they be more engaged, but they are much more likely to remember what they have learnt and be able to use it again in the future.

In November 2020 we converted to become an academy and became part of Omega Multi-Academy Trust. Our staff are our greatest asset, with colleague well-being and workload being something we are very mindful of, and as part of Omega Multi Academy Trust colleagues benefit from strong collaboration, network opportunities and a broad and varied professional development programme at every level.

In joining Alsop High School and, therefore, Omega Multi-Academy Trust, you will be part of a forward thinking, reflective and driven organisation whilst working within a community centred secondary school. I thank you for your interest in becoming a member of Team Alsop; I hope our approach resonates with you and that you are inspired to want to join us in delivering on our vision. If you are passionate about career development, passionate about working with likeminded colleagues and passionate about developing positive student and parent relationships as part of our journey to excellence, then we would welcome your application.
