Henley Bank High School is a 11 – 16 mixed comprehensive secondary school and is situated in Brockworth, Gloucester. We currently have 750 students on roll, with staff providing teaching, pastoral care and other support across the school. We had our first Ofsted inspection in June 2022 and were extremely proud of the outcome which was good in all categories. We are also extremely proud of the results our Year 11 students have achieved and the dedication that they and our staff have put in to achieve this is outstanding.

At Henley Bank High School, our aspiration is for all our staff and students to leave our school with practical wisdom gained through the teaching of intellectual, moral, civic and performance virtues. We build character implicitly, through our world class curriculum, teaching and learning in the classroom and explicitly through our Legacy Programme and Pastoral Systems. We aim to guide our students in becoming well rounded citizens of the future who can lead with honesty, integrity and resilience. The importance we place on this has been recognised through the school being awarded the Character Kitemark accreditation. Our Legacy programme and values of Ambition, Creativity, Confidence, Determination and Respect are the foundations of our Character Education programme.

All students have an entitlement to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum. We believe that all students with additional needs should be taught wherever possible, with their peers in mainstream classes by subject specialists who use a range of teaching methods and strategies to develop students' knowledge, skills and understanding. Henley Bank High School was the winner of the NASEN Award for Secondary Provision which demonstrates the value that we place on our support provided within the classroom across all subjects within the school.

As a school, we really celebrate being a team and a ‘family’. This is crucial to us to ensure collaboration and support as well as ensuring that staff, students, parents/carers and the wider community feel invested in improving the school and the chances of success for our students. A huge amount of work has gone into developing this school over the last few years and we are so excited to welcome new members of staff to help continue this development, as well as bring their own ideas and enthusiasm.

We are ambitious about diversity and inclusion and very much look forward to receiving applications from candidates whose personal qualities and values reflect those in the person specification and whose experiences also place them in a strong position to deliver the challenges set out in the job description. We encourage applications from candidates regardless of age, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital status, religion, belief, or race.
