Headteacher, Preparatory School Division

Tettenhall CollegeWolverhampton

This is an exciting time in the long and successful history of Tettenhall College. The appointment of a new Headteacher for our Preparatory School Division is a wonderful opportunity for a dynamic, innovative, experienced, committed and successful school leader who is willing to embrace our College’s values and commitment to excellence. We seek an individual, aspiring for an exciting challenge, to continue build on the College’s achievements, and join us in the next stage of our journey.

Tettenhall College combines the best of modern teaching and facilities with the heritage and values of a traditional educational establishment – both in its physical setting and in its ethos. A substantial, recently completed investment programme has created outstanding facilities for the next era of Tettenhall College: modern en-suite study bedrooms, a state of the art Study Centre, a new Sixth Form Common Room, a library, a multi-purpose all-weather sports facility and squash courts. These investments complement the already impressive facilities of the Victorian ‘Towers Theatre’; an indoor heated swimming pool; extensive sports fields and modern IT facilities. A high grade investment in the School's largest boarding house is currently underway.

This commitment to providing the very best facilities is matched by the energy and passion of our committed staff who strive to inspire and ensure that all pupils fulfil their personal best. Small class sizes throughout the College ensure individual attention for each pupil with emphasis on the development of the individual. This supportive environment has resulted in the School’s excellent reputation for pastoral care – confirmed by a recently awarded Well-Being Award. Support of those pupils who have additional learning needs, including EAL, is a critical element of the School’s offering. This is an exciting time to join Tettenhall College; the leadership team are committed to continuing to increase the School’s profile both locally and within overseas markets. Pupil numbers have grown by 25% with a steady increase in boarding. Tettenhall College is now widely recognised as one of the Midlands’ leading independent schools and is progressing rapidly towards its goal of becoming one of the best small independent schools in the UK.

The cornerstone of our community is our vision to be the school of choice for outstanding personalised education, inspiring every pupil to excel academically and beyond. Our mission is to nurture our pupils to achieve their full potential and discover their unique talents in an educational setting where they will thrive and be happy. Our exceptional staff motivate pupils to embrace challenge, giving them the best preparation for life and personal success.
