At The Earls High School we seek excellence for students and staff, through a caring and mutually supportive partnership between school and community.
The parents of Halesowen and its surrounding neighbourhoods have been sending their children to The Earls High School for well over three hundred and sixty years. We started as a small grammar school and the proud traditions of high standards of behaviour and high expectations of academic progress have stayed with us in the school’s present form as a thriving, innovative comprehensive school.
At The Earls High School we believe that people really do matter the most! Our school is made a very special place by the students and staff who come here together to learn. Our key values of excellence, care and partnership can be seen running through everything that we do. We challenge students and staff to achieve excellence every day so that they fulfil their potential. Students and staff are successful because as they strive for excellence they feel cared for and supported to be their best. As a school we cannot do this alone, so the partnerships between staff and parents, between students and staff and between the staff are built carefully so that they form a firm foundation on which to build aspiration.
One main cause of our success is our drive to appoint the very best staff in all areas and at all levels who demonstrate enthusiasm for their area of expertise, passion to help develop and nurture the whole child and a commitment to continual self-improvement.
