Our people and culture
Hale School’s professional staff communities support a thriving student-family-school relationship. The calibre of our academic, administrative and operational staff determines the quality and efficacy of our students’ learning. We endeavour to find and appoint individuals who are outstanding in their fields, their pedagogy and their willingness to positively contribute to the Hale community.
We are proudly one of WA’s leading schools. We offer our boys extended academic opportunities, competitive challenges and a well organised range of diverse co-curricular activities. Hale’s academic staff responsibilities daily transcend the classroom to include these and other coaching and tutoring roles. Their involvement actively strengthens the crucial mentoring and positive role modelling they fulfil throughout our boys’ education.
We look for people who wish to embrace this culture, who value a high level of performance and are ready to fully engage in leaving their unique contribution to the school and the boys within it.
