Welcome from the Executive Principal and Head of School

We’re in the business of learning”

Thank you for your interest in the Heath School.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to The Heath School. We are a successful, popular and welcoming comprehensive school with almost 1200 students on roll.

The Heath School CARE values (Co-operation, Aspiration, Resilience and Excellence) frame the way we think about what it is be a Heath student. This includes the ways students work whilst in school and what they hope to become in the future.

Members of our school community enjoy positive relationships built upon a mutual respect that creates a harmonious and productive environment within which our students thrive.

The school has an excellent curriculum offer that is broad, balanced and devised with the needs of our students at the heart.  Our excellent teaching staff and outstanding pastoral structures enable students to feel safe and happy in school.  We are passionate about delivering the highest academic standards and encouraging every student to fulfil their potential in whichever areas their talents and interests may lie.


Our students enjoy their time at school and contribute hugely to the warm and positive atmosphere which exists throughout the building.  Our teaching staff choose to work here for all the right reasons; they care about our students and work hard on their behalf. In particular, they give up many hours of their own time to facilitate a remarkable range of revision sessions, trips and extra-curricular activities, utilising the fantastic grounds and facilities of our newly built school.

I recognise the huge responsibility that schools have to provide for the young people in their care and will do all that I can to make sure that every single student at The Heath School continues to be valued as an individual and supported to be the very best version of themselves: to be kind, to have integrity in their actions, to take responsibility when necessary, to have respect for their environment, for others and themselves, and finally to show courage and resilience when needed.

Of course, no website can ever be an adequate substitute for spending time in a school and, if you are considering applying for a post at The Heath School, we would urge you to come and visit us. We would be very happy to show you around the school during a normal school day and would be very surprised if you did not leave feeling as positive about the school as we do.

Please have a read through this recruitment website and contact our recruitment partner, Hannah Connell from Hays Education, on 0151 242 5100 / 07966 129 657 or Hannah.connell@hays.com to find out how to apply to The Heath School

We look forward to your application.

Kind regards

Mr J Jardine – Executive Principal

Mr T Tudor – Head of School
