‘Innovation, Inspiration, Learning, Leading… together’

Sale High School is a rapidly improving 11-16 mixed gender High School graded as a ‘Good school with Outstanding features’ (June 2015).

Following this glowing Ofsted report, the students of Sale High School built upon this success and achieved outstanding results in 2016, breaking records yet again.

Our students surpassed the 60% boundary for at least 5 A*-C Grades including English and Mathematics and we saw records broken for a full range of subjects in both attainment and student progress. Our progress 8 data is very strong and suggests students at our school achieve a third of a grade above national expectations across the curriculum.

The success of the English Baccalaureate route saw 33% of students achieving this full suite of qualifications which is well above the last published National Average of 24%.

100% of students achieved A* - C in Chemistry, Physics and Biology, 88% in Art, 84% in Drama, 80% in English Language and 80% in Music. Over 85% achieved this benchmark in RE, 73% in History, 76% in Food Technology, 79% in English Literature and 72% in Spanish.

We are proud of our inclusive ethos and that students, whatever their background are achieving so much better than the National Average. Our pupil premium gap is 6% compared to the last published national gap of 27% and is one of the best in Trafford. This means we are serving all our students well.

We now wish to appoint an outstanding teacher with a strong commitment to effective teaching and learning to join our Technology team. Candidates should have a holistic view of the subject, ideally being able to teach across the disciplines of Resistant Materials, Graphics, CAD/CAM and Electronics, although any specialism within these areas will be considered. The ability to also teach KS3 Art would be an advantage.

The successful candidate will be committed to high standards with a proven track record of consistently delivering good/outstanding lessons to KS4. We would welcome applications from NQT’s and RQT’s and provide excellent support to these colleagues.

You will have access to the benefits of working in a school with Specialist Technology status, including:

  • Interactive technology in every classroom;
  • All staff are provided with a laptop or Surface Pro tablet;
  • 6 fully equipped IT Suites;
  • Fully equipped Technology department including laser cutter and 3D printer;
  • Recently refurbished state of the art library
  • A sincere commitment to professional development for all staff

The school is in a good location, easily accessible from Manchester, Warrington and Cheshire.

If you have high expectations, are ambitious for young people, and believe every child matters, the leadership team invite you to take part in our journey to Outstanding.

Closing Date: 18th April 2017
Interview Date: w/c 24th April 2017

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, therefore the successful candidate will be required to undertake a criminal records check via the DBS (Disclosure Barring Service).
