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.

At Hale School new staff members are welcomed into an inclusive, highly supportive, friendly, and professional academic, administrative and operational community. Hale School’s enviable reputation as a place of educational excellence has been earned over many decades. Our expectations of staff are broad and varied but you will receive collegiate offers of assistance by a collaborative, professional, friendly community. Our facilities, strong sense of community, competitive salaries, management structures and opportunities for professional growth all contribute to an environment in which all staff are valued and supported.

We endeavour to meet the requirements of these frameworks by being explicit in our standards and expectations of all staff. These beliefs are outlined in several important foundations, which include documents like our Child Safe Policy, Code of Ethics and Conduct, our Anglican Heritage and School values.

These are outlined in the papers listed above along with our Child Protection and Mandatory Reporting Policy and How to Comply with the Code of Conduct for All Staff, as updated from time to time.

  • Provide a welcoming and safe environment for children and young people.
  • Promote the safety and wellbeing of children and young people.
