Welcome from the Head Teacher

Welcome! My name is Dean Jones and I am the Headteacher here at The Crossley Heath School. It’s a privilege to lead this remarkable school. Crossley Heath is steeped in rich history that dates back to 1585 with education taking place on this site since 1864 when the building was founded as an orphanage and school. This heritage provides the basis of inclusivity and social mobility that we still have at the heart of our ethos. We are an inclusive school family, building on our proud heritage to champion the students of today to become the leaders of tomorrow. We believe in realising every student’s potential to change the world for the better. Promoting values of kindness, bravery and imagination from our students as we pursue academic excellence and strength of character. We care, we stand up for what is right and we dream big.

One of the most wonderful features of Crossley Heath is our warm, vibrant school culture, with a rich diversity of students from all backgrounds. We have aspirational classroom environments, a house system allowing all students of all ages to collaborate and compete, as well as commitment to a vast range of extra-curricular opportunities through clubs, sports and trips across the country and the world. This sense of care and community extends to our dedicated staff, who are passionate educators committed to the students and school we serve. If you are a hard working individual who thrives in a collaborative and supportive environment, I encourage you to explore the exciting opportunities at Crossley Heath School. We are always seeking talented individuals to join our team and contribute to the ongoing success of our students.
