Perhaps you’re an NQT – or maybe you’ve already gained some teaching experience. Either way, we understand why you joined the profession. You want to be an amazing teacher. You want to help every student, irrespective of their background or abilities, to succeed. In short, you want to make a positive difference to your students’ lives.

We also understand that to achieve your aims, you need outstanding support and development that’s shaped to meet your needs and aspirations. Like first-rate induction and CPD programmes that include links with other schools for example, plus the chance to take part in area and region-wide development initiatives.

Join us and you can look forward to all of that, as well as a clear focus on coaching and a buddy system that’s proved to be highly successful in helping new staff to integrate quickly. There’s also an extensive resource bank with materials that exemplify the very best of teaching practice. What’s more, you’ll find a strong peer-to-peer support structure in place to share and develop each other’s skills – and NQT’s are given an additional lesson off timetable to do so.

As for the culture here at Lode Heath, it’s all about working collaboratively and supporting each other to deliver exceptional teaching and learning for all of our students. That’s at the center of everything we do. 

As for our Science Department, the team is forward thinking, ambitious and successful and is highly motivated to achieve the best for all our students. We work closely together to balance a more traditional curriculum alongside an innovative and dynamic programme which brings science to life and develops students’ wider skills like team working and self-management so we looks forward to welcoming fresh thinking and new ideas to contribute to this.

There’s an exceptional environment waiting for you outside of work too. One of the most prosperous towns in the Midlands, Solihull offers plenty of superb amenities from its thriving shopping center through to lively bars and first-class restaurants. Close to Birmingham Airport, the NEC and the new Resorts World development, it also has excellent transport links to Birmingham city center and beyond.

Lode Heath School is a member of the Arden Multi-Academy Trust where we are committed in working together to help and enrich the experiences of all within the AMAT family; we have a clear vision to generate self-belief, self-worth, esteem and confidence in our young people who can then display the ambition and aspiration in achieving high educational outcomes.
