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’ which 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.
The Earls High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
