Our Ofsted inspection in January 2017 judged St Bede's to be 'outstanding' in every way.
St Bede’s is a good place to work. The community is vibrant, focused on learning and caring for our students. Staff relationships are very strong, supportive and welcoming. Our students like the school and behaviour is outstanding. We have approximately 1700 mixed ability students aged 11-18. This includes 320 studying academic courses in the sixth form. Our GCSE exam results make us one of the highest performing non-selective state schools in the country reflecting the very effective three way partnership we enjoy; hardworking pupils, committed staff and supportive parents.
We welcome applications from NQTs and more experienced teachers. Whatever your level of experience, and regardless of whether you are a teacher or member of support staff, this is a school where you will have opportunity to develop. Teachers in their NQT year benefit from an excellent level of support through mentoring and a full NQT programme.
St Bede’s is unique. This is the only state-funded school where Anglicans, Roman Catholic and the Free Churches are bound together in a formal partnership to provide a common Christian education, which values the distinctive contribution of each tradition. St Bede’s is a charitable trust jointly held by the Anglican Diocese of Southwark and the RC Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. Staff can be of any religion, or none at all, but must be able to support the ethos of the school.
Our facilities are very good; staff have free access to fitness facilities and there is very good on-site catering. Teaching and support staff have opportunities to be involved in a very wide range of activities and visits. We are situated in Redhill Surrey with good transport links to both London and the south coast. We are very close to beautiful countryside. This area offers the best of all worlds!
Our school is committed to the safeguarding of children so all appointments are subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check. Only applications made on our School Application form will be considered; we do not accept CVs or unsolicited testimonials. It is our policy always to request references prior to interview.

Please note that due to the very high introductory fees charged by agencies, we will only consider CVs submitted via them if insufficient high calibre applications are received. Please do not rely on an agency to put you forward for a post at St Bede's to which you are attracted.
We look forward to hearing from you.
