An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Teacher of RE.  If you have enthusiasm and a commitment to achieving high standards and are able to teach Key Stage 3, 4 and 5, then we look forward to receiving your application.    

Our Religious Education Department at Rutlish is a vibrant, energetic and happy area of the School in which all students and staff actively participate. 

We have six specialist members of staff who are passionate about our subject. We work collegially and supportively and this is reflected in all aspects of what we do. Collectively responsibility is taken for the creation and sharing of resources to ensure that all students of RE receive the same high quality teaching across classes.

Our students are encouraged and taught how to search, question and evaluate all areas of religion and spirituality.  We aim to motivate good learning and achievement through a wide range of teaching methods. We ensure that the importance of literacy is a fundamental part of teaching and our students know how to write academically sound material.  

The department is well-resourced and we are proud of our learning environment that reflects the spiritual, religious and cultural world of our community and teaching content.  

The Religious Education Department is a crucial part of the School ethos and we are involved in developing and supporting whole school events. The department has consistently been judged as outstanding in its provision, and continues to operate with 40% A-A* and +80% A-C.   

This is an exciting and continually growing area of Rutlish and both students and staff show their enjoyment of RE through exuberant teaching and learning.  

Staff are involved in regular CPD to support their personal review and develop identified areas of specialism.  

Our main hope is that our students continually achieve through a passion for RE, developed by a happy, fun-loving staff who have a compassion for each individual they work with.  We have an open teaching style, working together and offering support within the classroom to ever improve our quality delivery for the boys.
