Teacher of Science

St Paul's Catholic CollegeBurgess Hill

Are you ready to open a new chapter in 2021? Come and join the work of St Paul's and be a key part of our happy and successful team.

We are looking for a Science specialist to come and join our dynamic and successful team. This is an ideal opportunity to develop in an engaging and innovative environment that will help you develop as a teacher.

In choosing to work at St Paul's you will become part of a supportive and highly successful department and will flourish with the opportunities available through our leadership of the Sussex Maths Hub and Inspire Teaching School Alliance.

We have developed an innovative use of technology where all students work online through iPads and staff can manage workload, collaboration and communication with fantastic custom in-house designed software.

St Paul’s is an 11-18 mixed Catholic comprehensive school with a total of 1100 students on roll including 300 students in the Sixth form. The College has a strong ethos and is a vibrant Christian community. We are committed to making sure we never accept second best for the students in our care and look to give them a full experience of education that supports their academic, personal and faith development.

This is summarised in our mission statement and educational vision which is:

“To provide an innovative, inspirational and Christian education which challenges, nurtures and informs our students to enable them to take their place in a changing world.”

We are proud of all that students achieve at St Paul’s and this led to us being awarded High Performing Schools Status. Our 2019 results were:

GCSE: 82% 9-4 with English and Maths and a progress 8 score in the top 10%  nationally.

A2: 60 A*-B and 88% A*-C. This is an ALPS rating of ‘excellent” over the last three years.

Over 1 in 4 students have gone on to study at Russell Group universities. This year 81% of students were offered places at their first choice university.

Essentially these results are built on a belief that we have a duty to ensure that every student achieves their potential with us. We also believe it is essential to give our students the best opportunities to develop as learners, personally and in their faith journey.

'St Paul’s is an outstanding school where all learn, thrive and succeed together.'  Ofsted
