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.

Teach Wolverhampton

Explore the multiple routes you can take to become a teacher.

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

The City’s children are our inspiration. They are talented, welcoming, diverse and love to learn. 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 achievements beyond their imagination.

This is an exciting time to be teaching in Wolverhampton, a City where standards are rising in schools that understand the challenges that the early part of a career or a move to a different part of the country can bring. Higher attainment and good pupil progress that have resulted in a transformed performance record recognised in a sharp rise in the number of schools enjoying positive inspection outcomes have been built upon a collaboration between schools, Trusts, Teaching Schools and the City Council to develop a framework of training opportunities that match the needs of teachers at all stages of their career. Our schools have leaders that have successfully grown their own careers, often in the City, and are keen to support and guide you through each stage of your career.

There are multiple routes you can take to become a teacher, and the choice can sometimes feel overwhelming. The following page has been created to overcome that and to help you compare each route side by side to find out which is right for you, as well as providing a convenient overview of providers of each route in the City.
