Our Vision and Culture

Corfe Hills School is in a fabulous location within easy reach of Bournemouth and its beaches, Poole and its harbour, the Jurassic Coast and the Dorset countryside. The school serves the catchment area of Broadstone, Corfe Mullen and the wider area and we truly believe that all of our students are exceptional. Whilst the school was graded as “requires improvement” in November 2017, two years later, following 3 years of significant and sustained improvement, it has changed almost beyond recognition.

The 2019 GCSE results are exceptional with a Progress 8 score of +0.39 putting Corfe Hills in the top 20% of schools nationally and Progress 8 in Maths of +0.8 putting the results in the top 5% of schools nationally.  In addition, Engineering was one of the top two courses across the school in terms of subject progress.

Our vision is “High Expectations – Exceptional Individuals” and we truly believe in the potential of every young person who joins the school.  We also have an exceptionally committed staff, including talented teachers and a fabulous support staff who provide a range of functions including pastoral and administrative support to students.  Working at Corfe Hills involves 100% commitment to our vision - “High Expectations - Exceptional Individuals”.

At Corfe Hills School we are passionate about excellence in learning.  We believe that this is the foundation which will enable our young people to achieve the highest possible outcomes during their time with us.  We have the highest expectations of students – that they will engage fully in their learning, have high aspirations for themselves and embrace the wide range of opportunities available to them both inside and outside the classroom.

Corfe Hills School is committed to safeguarding children and promoting the welfare of children and young people. It is expected that all staff, parents/carers, governors, volunteers and visitors will share this commitment.  

Successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced DBS check which forms part of our Safer Recruitment process.  

Corfe Hills School is an equal opportunities employer. We value diversity and inclusiveness. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status.
