Thank you for taking the time to visit the vacancies page of Hagley Catholic High School and thus consider the opportunities available to you to join the wonderful staff and community that make up our fabulous school.
Hagley Catholic High Schools seeks to appoint dynamic members of staff who share our ambition to ensure that every young person at Hagley achieves their full potential. Hagley strives for the best for everyone; students, staff, parents and carers alike, and thrives on a “can do” attitude with no barriers to everyone’s achievement and progress. All we ask is that everyone commits to being their best self each and every day.
As a Catholic School we believe that everyone is uniquely formed in the image of God and we are called to live, learn and serve in Jesus’ name, by living out the Gospel values and following the compassion of Christ. Consequently, the Hagley family is a warm, caring, nurturing and generous one, in which all students, staff, parents, carers, and visitors feel part of.
Hagley Catholic High School is part of the St Nicholas Owen Multi Academy Company that was established in October 2014 with five of our feeder primaries. We have a PAN of 190 and over 1100 students on our roll. It is situated in a semi-rural setting some twelve miles south west of Birmingham. The village of Hagley is within close proximity to the national motorway network and on a train line from Worcester to Birmingham, yet still enjoys views of the Clent Hills and beautiful surrounding countryside.
Hagley Catholic High School is a good school and the recent OFSTED inspection of October 2019 under the new inspection framework confirmed this.
Inspectors commented very positively under a very robust and challenging new framework. They reported that:
This is a friendly school where pupils are safe and well cared for.
Leaders have high expectations of how pupils should behave, and pupils behave well.
Pupils are proud of their school and they take pride in themselves.
Pupils achieve well…
Leaders make sure that topics are taught in a logical order and teachers make deliberate links to what pupils have learned before.
Pupils are well behaved in lessons. They are keen to learn, and they take pride in their work.
Outcomes are excellent at Hagley with a GCSE Progress 8 score in 2019 of +0.35 and English literature and language, maths, science and history in the top 20% of all schools nationally for attainment. Overall attainment was in the top 20% also, as were all elements of the attainment buckets.
Hagley also has a top performing sixth form with over 200 students on roll. In 2019 two-thirds of all students achieved grades A* to C with 17% achieving AAB. We have an excellent reputation for supporting students on the Oxbridge pathway and last year 3 out 4 applicants went on to Oxbridge, while 33% went on to Russell Group Universities.
We also have a thriving extra-curricular provision in all areas but especially in music, performing arts, PE and RE. While students are given some amazing opportunities to engage in trips to the Gower, Poland, Italy, France, Skiing in Austria and more.
There is not a better time to join Hagley Catholic High School and I do hope that you will consider applying to join our team and I look forward to receiving your application.
