Thank you for your interest in joining Team Alsop; we can offer you a wonderful opportunity to join a school that is rapidly transforming and focused on a very bright future.

Alsop High School is a very special place to work where morale is high and a strong team spirit underpins all we do. We are unashamedly ambitious for students and staff alike as we recognise that high quality teaching will make the difference to our students; if you choose to join us at Alsop you will change lives every day. I am so proud to lead a school where visitors frequently comment on the polite, warm and kind nature of students and colleagues alike. Classrooms are focused and our teachers are the expert in the room demonstrating the highest of expectations for all of our students. Holding doors open, shaking hands and treating you with respect our students are a privilege to work with and I believe that once you meet them you will be certain that this is the place for you. We need to dream big for all of our students and our knowledge rich curriculum is broad and balanced with a clear focus on building the cultural capital of the young people in our community.

We are committed to staff development and colleagues are currently undertaking work with Ambition Leadership as part of the Transforming Teaching programme and the NPQs for Middle and Senior Leadership and Headship. Furthermore, we support staff to develop their subject expertise through regional conferences, Research Ed events and a commitment to subject associations. All of our colleagues are part of an incredible team and we have implemented many of the workload saving approaches advocated by the DfE and professional associations; centralised detentions, reduced data drops, whole class feedback and quality assurance which seeks to improve as opposed to judge are all central to our core belief in the value of everyone. We know that happy staff working in an environment of high challenge and low threat provide the bedrock for our successes and you will be joining a team where professional trust and support are part of our DNA.

If you want to change lives, develop into the best version of yourself and join a group of colleagues who are completely committed to the young people they serve then we would be very interested in meeting with you and sharing our vision.

Thank you again for your interest in Alsop High School; we hope to hear from you soon.
