About The Duchess's Community High School

We are thrilled that you are interested in joining the team here at DCHS. We took over as Co-Heads in January
2021 with an aim of DCHS being an educational centre of excellence based on the principle that effective
relationships are the key to positive outcomes. We believe that first and foremost we as teachers are here to
provide high quality teaching and support to students within our care, and in doing so we will create a place where students want to be.
We are looking for a team player who has a student centred approach as well as a desire to be part of a robust teacher education programme. We have a considerate approach to staff workload and are committed to investing in staff to help them progress through their own career, and in doing so create a place where staff want to work.
We are passionate that the term ‘community’ within our title is significant and cannot be undersold or underplayed. We believe that every member of staff at DCHS should leave the community in a better position than the point they arrived here and ask that, if you are to join us, you share this belief. We believe that at DCHS, community works.
We have included everything we feel is important to share in this pack and we welcome requests from anyone interested in this position to contact us to visit in person, meet over a video call or chat on the phone about this opportunity.
