Why join the Houlton family?

Wanting to Make a Difference

At Houlton School, our ethos is underpinned by our three pillars of ‘Innovation, Aspiration and Excellence’. From these, we formed our mission statement:

To prepare pupils for the challenges and opportunities of their future lives through a world class curriculum, transformational learning experiences and the promotion of aspiration and excellence in all aspects of the school experience: once they have joined our Houlton family, pupils will enjoy the proud legacy of being members of our community for life.

In order to achieve this mission, we aim to be:

  • Excellent in our provision of transformational learning experiences;
  • Excellent in our expectations for, and from, every pupil;
  • Excellent in tending to our Houlton family relationships;
  • Excellent in our attention to detail in all that we do; and
  • Excellent in our recognition and celebration of all that our Houlton family does well.

A Supportive Family Environment

We are a dedicated team comprised of parents, carers, pupils, staff and the friends of Houlton School. You’ll join a robust and hardworking group of colleagues, with warmth and endeavour at the heart of our approach: truly, a Houlton ‘family’.
