About Elliott Hudson College

Elliott Hudson College has a mission to ensure that its students receive an exceptional education. We are looking for professionals who want to work in a college that focuses on high expectations, challenge and rigour but aligned closely with personal responsibility and pastoral care. Together these values will instil in young people a self-belief that enables them to access the highest standard of higher educational provision and employment. Through this approach Elliott Hudson College is becoming a catalyst for social change, transforming opportunities for the young people in the communities it serves.
