The school is part of the Liverpool Schools Diocesan Trust.

The school has a well-deserved reputation for academic success and strong pastoral care for all students. The school is smaller than the average secondary school but as a result of an ever-improving reputation is continuing to grow in size and has been oversubscribed for the last 5 years.

For January 2023 to cover maternity leave, we require a talented and enthusiastic Teacher of English to join a friendly, dynamic and collaborative department. 

The successful candidate will show the ability to make English relevant to all students and ensure all our pupils achieve the challenging targets we set them.  We particularly welcome applicants with drive and energy. 

St Michael’s Church of England High School is a caring Christian community.  The successful candidate must demonstrate the ability to support this ethos.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.
