Deputy Headteacher - Pastoral

Colton Hills Community SchoolWolverhampton


Our Purpose and Mission 

A community school is one which has the ethos of everyone working together as a family towards our shared goals, which can be summarised with our school values:

PRIDE  :         Participation – Respect – Integrity- Diversity – Excellence

At Colton Hills we believe that every child is entitled to the highest quality learning experience, irrespective of their starting point. 

There are no barriers to high achievement and no excuses for not succeeding. 

In every lesson students are exposed to powerful knowledge and culturally rich experiences. 

Every day we are learning and reflecting on how we have improved ourselves. Through this, we maximise academic attainment so students can go to and through university and thrive in a top profession. 

All students will leave Colton Hills highly numerate and literate with meaningful qualifications that prove this. They will also leave equipped with both the skills and self-belief to engage with the wider world so that they can change it for the better.

Why Choose Colton Hills 

Colton Hills has been judged as a ‘Good’ school in both 2015 and 2018, and we are committed to improving that judgment in our next inspection – not for our own glory, but because we know we will be giving our students the best deal possible. The school encompasses a rich, harmonious and multicultural community and is committed to the development of all students, up to and including our growing sixth form.

The school is situated to the south of Wolverhampton’s city centre, on a site surrounded by green space and fantastic views across hills and fields. We also benefit greatly from a wide range of fantastic facilities for our staff and students, including an on-site swimming pool, astroturf pitch, dedicated Sixth Form block, flexible breakout spaces across the school and a large theatre often used by groups in our local community for performances. We are a school with a real family feel, with a strong House ethos that underpins our work.

We know that having successful students starts with having with a happy and well-supported staff. We are very much committed to our teachers having a fulfilling work-life balance, with an email policy that respects family time, careful management of our time budget to eliminate unnecessary meetings, a reduction in the amount of data we collect and an evolving marking policy designed to give teachers their lives back. We have adapted our appraisal system to prioritise professional development over data targets because we want our teachers to be satisfied in their work and judged fairly on their commitment to our school.

Our outcomes show that we are a successful school. We are also a growing school, our student numbers are robust and the whole-school cohort is approaching 1000 students. With a healthy financial picture and strong school governance in place, we are now seeking to expand our staff to create the best possible experience for our students every day, to develop their confidence and aspiration by surrounding them with inspiring adults delivering an exciting curriculum.

Colton Hills Community School has a successful past and every hope of a very bright future – we’re on a journey to being World Class. Come and see the wonderful things we do.
