At Wombourne High School we highly value personal attributes of hard work, positivity and kindness, and we are looking for staff who can model these values. 

As a founder member of the Invictus Education Multi-Academy Trust, Wombourne High School is part of a carefully planned collaboration between six highly successful schools.

An independent style of education where students are consistently challenged to be the best that they can be.

Wombourne High School was judged as “Requires improvement” by Ofsted in March 2018, the school is making significant strides in improvements and is confident of a “Good” judgement at the next inspection.  Since the inspection the leadership team has been remodelled, including the employment of a new Headteacher (September 2018). 

We are looking for: 

• A talented colleague with a proven record of success in raising the achievement and aspirations of students of all abilities across all Key Stages 

• A consistently good or outstanding teacher who will ensure high quality teaching and learning in English

• An inspirational teacher who is committed to developing creative and successful approaches to learning in English

• A committed and inspirational leader who can inspire and build capacity in staff

• A candidate who can support staff in this successful Faculty to develop their ability to have a significant impact on student progress

• A person with high expectations of staff and students and the ability to manage change

• An enthusiastic and energetic professional who enjoys working with students who have the potential to achieve outstanding results

• An ambitious professional with aspirations to Deputy and/or Headship

We offer:

• The opportunity to work within a positive and innovative leadership team 

• The opportunity to contribute to whole school strategic development

• A fantastic ethos, where student behaviour is exemplary

• A school that believes in excellent professional development

• Opportunities across the Invictus MAT
