The Earls High School is a 1200 student, 11-16 Academy in the Borough of Dudley. It became a convertor Academy in January 2012 and one of the founding members of the Stour Vale Academy Trust (SVAT) alongside Redhill School, Stourbridge and Olive Hill Primary School in Spring 2017. Founded in 1652, the school has a long and distinguished history of service to the township of Halesowen.
Our school motto “Ut filii lucis fiatis” is age-old but its values continue to underpin the day-to-day work of a modern school: it roughly translates as “so that you may become the children of light”. It talks to the students about the transformative power of education, about how education can bring enlightenment through the acquisition of knowledge along with the development of self-awareness and goodness. With these attributes comes the satisfaction that will help students go on to lead happy and fulfilled lives. We have a large and experienced staff who commit themselves to this goal on a daily basis. We want our students to experience excellence, feel cared for and care for others and be able to develop effective working partnerships with all people they meet. All our staff work in partnership with students providing both care and challenge to ensure students achieve excellence.
Closing date: 16th November 2018.
