Working at CHS

We are committed to recruiting and retaining outstanding practitioners onto our teaching and our support teams to ensure that our students achieve their very best and are lead by happy, dedicated and highly skilled staff.

We are committed to ensuring ongoing training and personalised development for all staff. We have an exciting calendar of CPD training events; active and motivating sessions focused on Teaching and Learning, student attainment and staff well-being.  We use the Annual Appraisal Cycle to ensure that all professional development is designed to meet the needs of our staff, whatever stage of their career they may be at and whether they are teaching or support staff.

For future opportunities to work at CHS please keep an eye on our Current Vacancies page which will be regularly updated with details of new vacancies.

Investors in People

The value that we place in our staff is reflected in the fact that we are extremely proud to hold the Investors In People Gold Award. We believe that this demonstrates our commitment to the development and success of our staff and a desire to continually improve and grow. 

Work-life balance

Here at Chorlton High School we recognise that ensuring success for students also means ensuring success for staff and we have worked very hard on our ‘Happiness’ agenda – delivering training for staff and students on ‘how to be happy and resilient’. There are a range of processes and procedures in place, designed to make life easier for our staff and we regularly report to Governors on ways in which staff would like their well-being to be improved. From tea and biscuits every day in the staff room, to aerobics classes, to Line Management meetings, we recognise that through working as a team and having open lines of communication we can all thrive.

Staff Benefits

We offer a wide range of benefits to staff including: excellent pension schemes (Teachers Pension for Teaching Staff and Greater Manchester Pension Fund for Support Staff), cycle to work scheme and childcare vouchers. We also have a strong focus on staff wellbeing, providing support for healthcare costs plus access to counselling and 24 hour telephone heathcare advice through the BUPA Health Cash Plan.
