Following a review of the leadership team of St Bede’s we are looking to appoint an additional Assistant Headteacher to join us.
From September 2019 our leadership team will consist of:
• An Executive Head , working for three days per week,
• A Head of School: Academic
• A Head of School: Pastoral
• An Assistant Head: KS3
• An Assistant Head: KS4
• An Assistant Head: KS5
• An Assistant Head: Primary liaison and enrichment activities
• An Assistant Head: Teaching and learning (new post)
• A Bursar
St Bede’s is a popular and thriving school. We benefit from the support of three Christian traditions and have an excellent track record in securing academic success, providing a wide range of enrichment opportunities and ensuring an excellent all-round education.
Over recent years, at the request of the local authority, the school has admitted a ‘bulge’ class (taking Year 7 from a total of 270 to 300) and we are working with Surrey to improve our facilities so we can admit 330 pupils per year from September 2019 onward.
St Bede’s is a great place to work and an excellent community to belong to. We receive tremendous support from our parent body and a committed group of governors. Our pupils are actively engaged in all aspects of school life and there is a culture of mutual support and openness.
Why Work For Us?
Staff are friendly and supportive of one another: relationships between staff and pupils were recognised by Ofsted as 'exceptionally strong'.
NQTs benefit from a well developed and comprehensive induction period programme. More experienced teachers are given the opportunity to participate in training which will help them to develop skills needed for middle and senior management roles.
There are good on-site catering facilities. Staff are able to use the fitness facilities free of charge and to participate in sports activities.
Music is a big part of school life and staff are welcome to join our senior choir and instrumental groups.
We have a social event at the end of each term as well as occasional staff trips to the theatre.
The school is situated in Redhill, a commuter belt town in the Surrey Fringe area. We are close to the M25 and there are good transport links to London and the South Coast from Redhill station which is about 15 minutes walk from the school. We also benefit from being within walking distance of beautiful countryside . Many staff live locally, others commute from Guildford, South London, Kent and East & West Sussex.
We welcome visits prior to application (but appreciate that it is not possible for everyone to do so). If you would like to arrange a visit please email firstname.lastname@example.org
