About Hazel Wood High School

Welcome from the Headteacher

Dear Candidate,

I am the Headteacher of Hazel Wood High School and, during my time here, I have overseen a necessary period of considerable change since becoming a part of a Multi-Academy Trust in April 2019.

Our school has a good reputation for being caring and inclusive, and is highly regarded by its local community. We have high expectations of our staff and a great emphasis on pupil care, which includes a particular focus on outstanding quality teaching and learning, with the aim of achieving excellent outcomes for all students. Every student at Hazel Wood high School is challenged to achieve outcomes in line with the top 20% of students nationally, who have the same starting points, and we are determined not to settle for mediocrity.
At Hazel Wood, we have high expectations around behaviour and learning, and we support staff to actively apply these in the classroom, every day. With a consistent and supportive approach for all staff, this facilitates the student’s ability to understand and meet our expectations every day.

We believe that all our students deserve the very best education that we can provide and our teaching staff aspire to raise the standards and quality of teaching and learning. This is encouraged through inspiring and supporting colleagues with bespoke CPD; and by ensuring that best practice is shared and embedded. Having the right team in place is essential to this. Therefore, we thank you for reading through our application pack and considering us as the next step in your career.

The cumulative impact of all our school improvement work has been recognised both by our Ofsted Monitoring visit after academisation, and by many external agencies who have worked with us. Attainment and progress indicators at Key Stage 4 are improving; student numbers are healthy across all year groups, attendance levels have dramatically improved and exclusions are falling. After some significant restructuring, we are as financially secure as anyone can be at the present time. This is an exciting time for the school, our students and our staff.

As a part of the Oak Learning Partnership, we are proud of what we have achieved so far and excited by the continuous improvements and changes here at Hazel Wood High. This appointment will form a key element in the next phase of our transformation. If you would like to join our excellent team then we would like to hear more about you.

Visits to the school prior to application are both welcomed and encouraged. Please contact the school on 0161 797 6543 or by e-mailing the HR Department at to arrange an appointment.

I hope that when you have read the information enclosed that you will be encouraged to apply for the post. We look forward to receiving your application.

Please visit our school website for further information.
