Meet the Senior Management Team

Crompton House is a highly successful, over-subscribed 11–18 Church of England school situated on the edge of the Pennines, in Oldham, north east of Manchester. It is a high performing school with a strong sense of purpose and tradition.  Progress and achievement are excellent with 76% of our pupils achieving 5 A*-C including English and Maths in 2014.  This was the highest for Oldham state schools.

There are over 200 teaching and support staff at Crompton House School.  As you would expect in a school with an ethos for effective learning in an environment where outstanding behaviour is expected at all times, staff turnover compared to national figures is comparatively low.  However job opportunities do arise every year in a number of departments.  When recruiting new staff we apply a very demanding selection procedure to ensure that only the very best candidates are offered positions.  Those who are fortunate enough to be appointed will enjoy a wide range of benefits from joining the Crompton House Team.  Learning and teaching is at the top of every agenda and all teaching and classroom support staff are involved in the Crompton House Outstanding Teacher Programme that is delivered every Monday afternoon.  New staff induction takes place on Wednesday afternoons to ensure rapid familiarisation with school systems, procedures and policies.  There is a well planned NQT programme and a highly effective support system to ensure successful completion of that vital first year of teaching.  Professional development is embedded within our appraisal system and appropriate funding levels are allocated annually.

In conclusion, Crompton House is a happy and rewarding place to work. We have high expectations and the pace of life is always busy. Our school is based on traditional values, whilst embracing the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. We welcome applications from those who feel they have the skills, personality and experience to rise to this challenge.

“Behaviour and safety are outstanding. Students feel very safe within the school and they ensure through their behaviour that the school community is harmonious, aspirational and inclusive. Attitudes to learning are positive and enthusiastic.”
