Kettlethorpe High School is a large and popular maintained school in Wakefield, near to the M1 and with excellent links to Sheffield, Leeds and Kirklees. We continue to flourish and are the school of choice within the local area. We are often oversubscribed and are currently planning for a larger cohort entry that will see new capital building work and a potential 11-16 roll of 1,800 pupils.

Our last Ofsted inspection (Good) was a short one day inspection in December 2016. This acknowledges the academic and social development of our pupils and the fact that leaders and teachers are not complacent. It also recognised that the school is fully aware of its strengths and focus areas for development.

Our school is a very friendly place to work and a strong sense of shared community exists. We have an excellent extra-curricular offer which really is valued by our school community. We also have strong values and believe in supporting others. In 2016 the school raised over £14,000 for Children in Need – the most from any school in the country.

Kettlethorpe High School is an equal opportunities employer. We are committed to safeguarding our pupils and expects all staff, Governors and volunteers to share this commitment. Any successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
