A community school is one which has the ethos of everyone working together as a family towards our shared goals, which can be summarised in our school’s motto: Confidence. Happiness. Courage. Success.

At Colton Hills Community School, we work every day to achieve the best learning experience possible for our students, so that we can enhance their life chances, and ultimately improve the community around our school for the better. We would now like very much for you to become a part of that community. Colton Hills has been judged as a ‘Good’ school in both 2015 and 2018, and we are committed to improving that judgment in our next inspection – not for our own glory, but because we know we will be giving our students the best deal possible.

The school encompasses a rich, harmonious and multicultural community and is committed to the development of all students, up to and including our growing sixth form. The school is situated to the south of Wolverhampton’s city centre, on a site surrounded by green space and fantastic views across hills and fields. We also benefit greatly from a wide range of fantastic facilities for our staff and students, including an on-site swimming pool, astroturf pitch, dedicated Sixth Form block, flexible breakout spaces across the school and a large theatre often used by groups in our local community for performances.

We are a school with a real family feel, with a strong House ethos that underpins our work. We know that having successful students starts with having a happy and well-supported staff. We are very much committed to our teachers having a fulfilling work-life balance, with an email policy that respects family time, careful management of our time budget to eliminate unnecessary meetings, a reduction in the amount of data we collect and an evolving marking policy designed to give teachers their lives back. We have adapted our appraisal system to prioritise professional development over data targets because we want our teachers to be satisfied in their work and judged fairly on their commitment to our school.

Colton Hills Community School is committed to ensuring the safeguarding of all our staff and students and successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
