Wren Academy FinchleyBarnet

We are seeking to appoint an inspirational and committed Chaplain to provide effective Christian leadership whilst shaping our vision and providing pastoral guidance for all members of our diverse and vibrant community.

Located in the London Borough of Barnet, Wren Academy is sponsored by the Church of England and Berkhamsted School. The Academy has developed a strong reputation for outstanding teaching and learning, as demonstrated excellent results and three Outstanding Ofsted reports. We are an all-through school with an established Sixth Form and a primary which opened in 2015. The engaging curriculum, and state of the art buildings have contributed to the Academy’s notable success.

The position is open to an ordained person or suitably qualified lay candidate to lead on the spiritual welfare of this vibrant and diverse community. The successful applicant will be a key figure in supporting the school’s spiritual life and will take primary responsibility for worship, assemblies and tutorial times.

The Chaplain will provide support and guidance to the school community through listening, encouraging, discussing and leading.

This important post can either be part time (0.6 FTE) or full time with a teaching or other role within the academy. The successful candidate will join the Senior Leadership Team of a forward thinking Academy committed to our foundation bible passage to ‘Do justice, love kindness, walk humbly with your God’ as well as being challenged by the Biblical account of the interaction between Jesus and Zacchaeus.

Closing date: 9am, Thursday 20 May 2021.

Interviews will take place week commencing 24 May 2021.
