The McAuley Catholic High School is a successful 11-18 school that constantly strives to excel in every area of school life.  Our Christian ethos and values underpin our mission to ensure that every child is developed to their full potential and we achieve this through the provision of a safe, secure yet challenging learning environment.

We are a split site school across two sites one of which also houses our separate Sixth Form Centre, located approx. ¼ miles apart.  However, we operate as one school and all students access parts of the curriculum at both sites.

We believe strongly in a collaborative approach and as such work in close partnership with the Hallam Diocese, our family of 11 feeder Primary Schools and we also form part of the Doncaster Teaching School Alliance.  The McAuley Catholic High School is fully committed to the development of its people and the McAuley offer includes a Local Government pension scheme and enrolment into Westfield health scheme.

We are interested in hearing from outstanding colleagues who wish to join our team and contribute to continually driving up standards.
