Working at Court Moor

Court Moor is a great place to work. With bright students, supportive parents and excellent behaviour the stage is set for you to really develop your teaching. The school prides itself on its caring approach to staff and students; it's a highly collegiate school where we work hard to value the team which makes the school. We have a fairly traditional GCSE-based curriculum which is coupled with a broader commitment to the enrichment of the student experience. The school's motto of 'Caring to Achieve' is integral to our day-to-day work as leaders and teachers. Court Moor is a school to which staff and students enjoy coming and we are proud of its collaborative and courteous environment. With around 70 teachers and 40 associate staff Court Moor is large enough to have a strong sense of community, without losing that personal touch. Quite simply, Court Moor is a positive place and peopled with staff and students who want to be here. 

If you are considering applying for a position at Court Moor I would urge you to look around the site and get a flavour for what we stand for. We are always happy to have informal meetings or chats with prospective members of staff. Visitors to Court Moor often comment on the calm and friendly atmosphere of the school, a tour round the school is often the best way to truly understand what we are about and we encourage visitors to experience Court Moor School.

The leadership team at Court Moor value creativity, reliability and approachability; our job is to help other staff be the very best they can in their job. We have a comprehensive CPD programme whereby we use a range of local and national providers to ensure that staff have the time and resources to develop professionally during their time here. The key traits we recruit for are: warmth, enthusiasm, ambition and reflection. We value having diverse teams and so we would welcome applications from colleagues who are both new to the profession, and more experienced; the only stipulation is warmth and passion.

"Court Moor School provides an environment and the resources to help you reach your goals and encourage you to develop your skills inside the classroom.

"I joined Court Moor as an NQT in 2005 and spent the next twelve years at the school, leaving in the summer of 2017.  The decision to leave was a difficult one as I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the school, due to my caring and supportive colleagues and the great students.  During my time at Court Moor I was fortunate to have been afforded the opportunity to experience different roles, including Head of House, Head of Year and, more recently, Curriculum Leader of PE.  I was always encouraged to progress in my career and was able to take advantage of a range of CPD opportunities, in order to further develop my knowledge and understanding in different areas.  Most significantly, in February 2017, I was offered a rare opportunity to take up a Senior Leadership Secondment at another local school and Court Moor fully supported me in doing this.  The secondment resulted in a permanent position and, although I was sad to leave, I felt ready to move on to the next stage in my career.  The guidance and advice I received throughout my time at Court Moor has equipped me with the skills and confidence I needed in order to take on this new challenge, for which I am extremely grateful."

"Teaching at Court Moor is a fantastic place to develop, grow and learn from the very best. The ambition of the students to achieve cannot be rivalled. In addition to the outstanding pupils that we have, the staff are supportive and are always willing to listen and help improve your teaching. The school offer comprehensive professional development opportunities which I feel is a necessity in an outstanding school. However, forgetting all of this, the one and most wonderful aspect of teaching at Court Moor School is the community and sense of togetherness. The recently developed House system has ensured that the entire school community regularly work together to achieve an outstanding school environment."
