REQUIRED FOR SEPTEMBER 2021:  Lay Chaplain

Contract:  Full time/Permanent     Salary:  £25,403 to £29,154 Term Time Only + 5 INSET days

St Julie’s Catholic High School is a popular and oversubscribed school for girls and young women, situated in the conservation area of Woolton Village, South Liverpool.  In September 2017, we moved into our brand new £23 million school building.

In 2018 the Archdiocese judged the school Outstanding in all 9 categories.  In April 2018, OFSTED graded St. Julie’s as Good with Outstanding features. GCSE and Sixth Form results demonstrate good progress since our last inspection with a Progress 8 score broadly in line with national.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for the role of Chaplain in this large Catholic girls’ school.  The Chaplain, through their work and witness, will contribute to the spiritual and pastoral care of all members of the school community.  They will have a central role in implementing the school mission statement and work with the Head Teacher in leading and developing the Catholic life of the school.  They will nurture the faith formation and liturgical life of the school community.

As the Chaplain will lead services in our school chapel, the ability to sing and to play guitar and/or piano is a desirable feature of this role.

We wish to appoint someone who shares our moral purpose of ensuring all our young people receive the best education possible, in a supportive environment, from staff who care about them.  You will be resilient, dynamic and passionate about tackling disadvantage and improving students’ life chances.  In return, you will find working at St Julie’s incredibly rewarding due to our vibrant and talented students, who have a real thirst for learning, and engage in the various opportunities offered to them.  You will join a highly professional, enthusiastic and dedicated staff that ensure St Julie’s is a welcoming, caring and supportive environment in which to learn and work.

St Julie's Catholic High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.  An enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check is required, with Children's Barred List check, for all successful applicants.
