What the school offers its staff

The College was inspected by Ofsted in July 2019 and judged to be “Good” in all areas. St Anselm’s has been the top 6th Form in Wirral for progress from GCSE to A Level since 2017. We were the top maintained 6th Form in Merseyside in the 2020 DfE 16-19 Progress Tables.

The College was also inspected by Shrewsbury Diocesan Inspectors in March 2019 and judged to be “a good Catholic Grammar School with outstanding features.”

The Headmaster enjoys the support of a highly committed, hard-working, yet cheerful, staff. Most colleagues put time in above and beyond any minimum requirement and the confines of their job descriptions. This has the effect of creating a positive and rewarding environment in which to work.

MFL results are good, displaying positive value added at GCSE (P8) and GCE where German achieved 100% A*-B and Spanish 83% A*-C in 2023. GCSE German achieved 85% 4-9 and GCSE Spanish pupils achieved 83% 4-9 in 2023.

Further details about the role

This is an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic graduate to join this high-performing Faculty, which contributes strongly to the overall success of the College. The ability to teach Spanish and French to GCSE would be an advantage, but it is not essential. We are happy to consider applications from full-time qualified teachers across the pay scale.

Commitment to safeguarding

St Anselm's College is committed to the safety, protection and well-being of its students.

The College

St. Anselm’s College is a Roman Catholic Grammar School for boys in the Diocese of Shrewsbury. The College was founded in 1933, by the Congregation of Christian Brothers, to provide Catholic Education for the boys in the area. From 1944 to1975, it operated as a Direct Grant Grammar School. When Direct Grant was phased out, the College became Independent and remained so until 1995, when the College became the first school in the country to opt back into the maintained sector as a Grant Maintained School. From September 1999 the College was Voluntary Aided and became an Academy in June 2011. It remains under the Trusteeship of the Christian Brothers. The College is heavily oversubscribed with 5 Form entry, and 989 on roll. Currently 201 boys in the 6th Form.

The College was inspected by Ofsted in July 2019 and judged to be “Good” in all areas. They declared that “Teaching is especially strong in English, Art and PE”.
The College was also inspected by Shrewsbury Diocesan Inspectors in March 2019 and judged to be “a good Catholic Grammar School with outstanding features.”

The Headmaster enjoys the support of a highly committed, hard-working, yet cheerful, staff. Most colleagues put time in above and beyond any minimum requirement and the confines of their job descriptions. This has the effect of creating a positive and rewarding environment in which to work.
