Our Schools


Wolverhampton is rated as one of the top cities in the UK for families, with almost 90 per cent of the City’s primary and secondary schools being rated as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted. We are an ambitious organisation focused on delivering the best services for people in Wolverhampton; working for one of our schools will give you the opportunity to make a difference to their lives.

Non-teaching support staff, employed on NJC terms and conditions, will be able to join an excellent Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS). Teaching staff will be eligible to join the Teachers’ Pension Scheme. Other employee benefits, such as Salary Sacrifice Schemes, may be available to school-based employees.

Teaching is an exhilarating, challenging and hugely rewarding career. Here in Wolverhampton you will find a warm welcome from schools which understand this and will help you to develop as a professional.

The City’s children are our inspiration. They are talented, welcoming, diverse and open to learning and developing new skills. Wolverhampton schools aim to provide you with the support and guidance that will allow you to bring out the very best in our young people and help them to achieve.

This is an exciting time to be teaching in Wolverhampton. This is a city where standards are rising and where schools understand the importance of a high quality education. Higher attainment and good pupil progress have resulted in a transformed performance record which is demonstrated through a sharp rise in the number of schools enjoying positive inspection outcomes. A collaboration between schools, Trusts, Teaching Schools and the City Council has led to a comprehensive offer of training opportunities that match the needs of teachers at all stages of their career. Our schools have leaders who have progressed, often within the City, and are keen to support and guide you through each stage of your career.

There are multiple routes into teaching. Go to Help and support getting into teaching where trained advisers will be able to assist you to find the best route for you.
