Your new school

Founded in 1667 The Mirfield Free Grammar has a long established tradition of success and promotes values such as respect, integrity, teamwork and aspirations. We strive for excellence in everything we do. The MFG is a vibrant learning environment; everything we do, every decision we make is focused on the students and how we can inspire them to achieve the very best for themselves both academically and personally. 

With excellent commuter links, we are situated just 10 minutes away from the M62 and 20 minutes from the M1. 

In 2018, our sixth form went through an exciting rebrand to become Mirfield College, a 16-19 centre for the next generation of students. A centre where “teachers have high levels of subject knowledge and often exude great passion and enthusiasm for their subject.” – OFSTED, 2017

  • A commitment to developing reflective practitioners through our Continued Professional Development programme.
  • Weekly sessions introducing different aspects of pedagogy designed to complement each stage of your teaching career.
  • A fantastic Wellbeing Centre run by a trained counsellor; accessible for both staff & students providing high quality and skilled personalised support.

We are confident that new teachers joining our school will feel welcomed from the moment they start their journey with us and we absolutely encourage prospective applicants to visit school prior to applying should they wish to come and see us. This is a truly exciting opportunity for someone who wants to develop their teaching career within a small but very ambitious Multi-Academy Trust.
