At Cardinal Langley RC High School, we understand that you joined the teaching profession because you want to make a positive difference to the lives of young people. Our strong community ethos and excellent professional development programme will support you in achieving this.

We are aiming to be outstanding in all aspects and this position presents an excellent opportunity for a well-motivated teacher who shares this aim to develop their skills in a stimulating and supportive environment.

Our outstanding facilities provide the environment that our staff and students deserve and our curriculum is designed to stretch and challenge students of all abilities and potential.

The school is located in Middleton, North Manchester, and has excellent transport links via the M62 and M60. Situated centrally in the UK and only 7 miles from the centre of Manchester, our location provides easy access to a range of superb leisure and shopping facilities but is also close to the natural beauty of the Pennines. We are within easy reach of Lancashire, Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire and Merseyside, with excellent road and rail links and several international airports close by.

We are proud of our Catholic character and are part of both the Salford Diocese family of schools and the worldwide De La Salle network, which provides education to a million students in over 80 countries.  Everyone is most welcome within our school community, regardless of faith, but a willingness of staff to contribute to the extra-curricular life and the Catholic ethos of our school is essential.

The school is a harmonious community where pupils show good respect for one another and for staff - Ofsted 2017.
