We are looking for a well-qualified and highly motivated teacher of Religious Studies, who has a love of their subject, any specialism considered. There is the possibility of teaching Philosophy & Ethics at A Level at our partner sixth form, Harington School. 

We welcome applications from either NQTs who will be well supported by experienced mentors and through our teaching school alliance or from more experienced candidates where there are exceptional opportunities for further professional development and promotion.

The successful candidate will be joining a strong and supportive team of specialist teachers who take pride in achieving the best outcomes for all students. Catmose College is an over-subscribed 11-16 academy based in a new £26m building in Oakham, Rutland. The College was graded as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in all four categories and overall in February 2012. We have outstanding facilities throughout, with purpose-built laboratories offering excellent teaching resources and access to numerous iPads, laptops and computers; the College is able to offer a truly outstanding technology-led learning environment. 

Catmose College is part of the Rutland and District Schools’ Federation which currently consists of Catmose College, Catmose Primary and a Preschool provision. We are also proud to include Harington School, an academic sixth-form, in the Trust. This provides wider opportunities for staff, giving them broader experience across different organisations, including the opportunity to teach A-levels in an academically able environment, should their skills and experience be appropriate.  

For successful candidates there are exceptional opportunities for further professional development and promotion across the Federation.  Teachers are able to enjoy many additional benefits that come as part of working within the Federation. These include, amongst others:

  • Teachers at the top of scale may receive up to a 2% pay award annually for good performance, in addition to any incremental pay progression;
  • Relocation support for hard-to-recruit subjects;
  • Vast range of staff training including a funded Masters scheme;
  • Outstanding facilities;
  • Primary and secondary form teaching opportunities;
  • Staff laptops;
  • Priority admission for children of staff to the College and Primary.
