Teacher of Psychology

St. Mary's Menston, a Catholic Voluntary AcademyLeeds

Required for September 2021.  The Governors of this outstanding, high achieving and oversubscribed Catholic Voluntary Academy seek to appoint a highly qualified, experienced and dynamic KS5 Teacher of Psychology.  The successful applicant will join a forward-thinking and high-achieving department and be committed to delivering genuinely imaginative, engaging and varied lessons. This appointment provides the opportunity to teach well-motivated, hard-working and high achieving pupils in the Sixth Form. Psychology is a very popular subject within the sixth form which the students truly enjoy, and has a strong record of academic achievement delivering excellent outcomes.  It is not taught in KS4 and so is a new opportunity for St Mary’s students joining the sixth form.  The subject sits within the PE faculty.

St. Mary’s is a popular and highly successful school situated on the North West fringe of Leeds, close to the Yorkshire Dales.  The school is part of the Bishop Wheeler Catholic Academy Trust which consists of the high school and 9 primary schools.  The July 2019 Section 48 inspection and November 2014 Ofsted inspection judged St Mary’s as an outstanding school.  We became a Teaching School in October 2015 and a National Support School in September 2017.

Further details and a CES application form are available via the school website www.stmarysmenston.org in the Vacancies section.  Please email your completed application to recruitment@stmarysmenston.org addressed to the Headteacher.  

Prospective applicants are welcome to contact Mr G Priestley, Assistant Headteacher and Director of Sixth Form or Mr D Sinnett, Deputy Headteacher for more information about this post.

  • Closing date: Wednesday 24 February 2021, 12 noon
  • It is anticipated that interviews will take place shortly after

St. Mary’s is committed to promoting and safeguarding the welfare of all children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  This post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check
