Come and join our highly successful team #TeamAldersley
Due to the success of our Academy we have been asked to increase our student numbers and therefore we have a number of exciting vacancies.
Why choose Aldersley High School?
Firstly, because our children are amazing! Last year they achieved a Progress 8 score of 0.51 which is well above average and puts us in the top 4 schools in the Black Country. We passionately believe in our Knowledge-rich curriculum and pre-planned curriculum lessons have reduced teacher planning time. Over many years we have proven that feedback is important to students but through adapting teaching and not arduous marking, hence we do not mark.
All of our staff have a coach that works with them throughout the year which negates formal lesson observations and onerous quality assurance and ensures that they have the CPD that they need for career progression.
Our conduct system is centrally managed and with a team of highly qualified non-teaching pastoral staff.
Graduates are welcome to apply and join either our two-year Graduate Teacher Training Programme or our PGCE route into Teach First.
Come and visit our school at any time and look at our plans for the new Amethyst Sixth Form building which will be ready for September 2019.
Aldersley has been instrumental in my development as a teacher. I began my ITT here through Teach First and the provision put in place for my continued professional development has been of the highest standard. The department is incredibly supportive and has aided my confidence whilst my mentors have helped me cultivate my teaching skills. Aldersley has also enabled me to mature my leadership skills during my NQT year with a TLR. I have been given whole school responsibility for raising the reading age across the school which has been a brilliant challenge to engage with. It has been lovely to be recognised for the effort I put in! If you want to be supported, challenged and appreciated, Aldersley will be perfect for you.Staff Testimony
I was a pupil at Aldersley High School and had a further positive two years staying on in Sixth Form where I studied the Sciences and Sport. My leadership potential was spotted whilst in Sixth Form and I undertook a further year on a level 3 apprenticeship. Whilst at the University of Wolverhampton I volunteered at the school as an academic mentor and sports leader. After gaining a First class honours degree, the school employed me and paid for my QTS whilst I worked as an unqualified Science teacher. Once I had qualified, the school paid for continued professional development that was of the highest standard to enable me to convert my specialism to Physics. I am very proud that I am now the Head of Physics and lead a team of teachers.Staff Testimony
