Educating 1200 students, The Bishop’s Stortford High School provides a single-sex education for boys in Years 7 to 11 and has a large, thriving co-educational sixth form, with over one hundred girls on roll. Last year our students achieved 84% 5 A*-C (Inc. English & Maths) at GCSE and 55% A*-B at A-Level. We have a strong ethos, based on high expectations and standards for all, a committed and supportive staff who deliver high quality, engaging lessons and well-behaved students with excellent attitudes to learning.
We were graded Outstanding in every category by Ofsted in March 2017.
We are seeking to appoint an excellent teacher of Religious Studies to teach in this strong, flourishing Department. The successful candidate will instil a love of their subject amongst all students, in a forward thinking and imaginative way. RS has a high profile within the school, a strong track record of examination success and is a popular choice at GCSE and AS/A2 level. Last year 78% of students achieved A*/B grades at GCSE with 47% achieving an A* or A grade. GCSE results are outstanding and have been consistently outstanding since 2011. The Department also leads Citizenship and the booking of high profile outside speakers from sport, politics, religion and the media. Whilst the School does have a Christian ethos, the Department is inclusive, with all faiths being studied, as well as atheism. Christian Theology, Philosophy of Religion and Islam are studied in the Sixth Form. Teamwork, student voice and leadership, as well as staff sharing ideas, are key features of the Department.
The school places a strong emphasis on staff development and the appointed candidates can expect to gain significant enjoyment and professional fulfilment from working here.
