Are you ambitious, motivated and passionate about improving the life chances of young people?

Are you a good or outstanding teacher ready for promotion and seeking a new challenge, or an inspirational newly qualified teacher seeking a school that offers an outstanding induction programme, an ongoing development package and excellent career prospects?

If like us, your ambition is to become the very best at what you do, you should consider joining Phoenix.

Phoenix is a multi-cultural 11 – 19 secondary school, serving over 1,900 students in the North of West Bromwich, close to the border with Walsall.  Opened in September 2010, as a result of the merger of two local schools, Phoenix has quickly established itself as one of the highest performing schools in the area, an accolade achieved through our commitment to continually improving the quality of teaching and learning, and the provision of an exciting and dynamic learning experience for students.

At Phoenix, we are a school proud of our achievements, our positive ethos and the excellent relationships we have between students and teachers.  However, we are not complacent and recognise that there is more to be done if we are to achieve our ambition of becoming an outstanding school.  We are seeking teachers who have the skills, talents and expertise to engage and inspire our students, teachers who are prepared to go the extra mile and who genuinely believe that there is no ceiling on what our students can achieve.

We invest heavily in the professional development of our staff and have a calendar of high-quality activities that support the career progression of individuals and the priorities of the school.  As one of only a few schools across the country to benefit from the government’s priority schools building programme, we are confident that state-of-the-art facilities will greatly benefit the whole community of Hateley Heath; this really is an exciting time to be joining Phoenix!

As a school, we have signed up to the Staff Well-being Charter and invested in a benefits and welfare package for our staff.  We also have many family friendly policies within the school.

Phoenix really is a great place to work, but don’t take my word for it, please take the opportunity to visit us and see for yourself.  I would be proud and delighted to show you around.
