Head of Religious Education
The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and inspirational teacher of Religious Education who is looking for the next step in their career. You would be expected to be committed to facilitating high levels of student engagement and academic progress, creating a stimulating and positive classroom ethos and fostering independent and collaborative student-led learning. The Humanities faculty comprises experienced full-time and part-time teachers of History, Geography and RE, who work together effectively as a team and take a collaborative approach to planning and curriculum delivery.
Langley is a wonderful school to work at and learn in and as our recent Ofsted report suggests: 'Pupils are thoroughly prepared for life in modern Britain' at our school, where the holistic approach to child centred learning is valued as highly as the outcomes they eventually achieve at the end of their time with us.
Our school’s fundamental principles focus on supporting, challenging and inspiring the whole Langley community ‘to be the best that we can be’. But these are not simply words on paper. Students, staff and governors genuinely give all they can, to bring those principles to life every day. Examinations are critically important, of course, and our students achieve superbly well in them, but we truly believe in developing young people to deal with the tests of their lifetime, not merely to endure a lifetime of tests. Everyone who visits us comments on the special ethos of our school – ‘the Langley way’.
Our Headteacher always says that our young people really are our best advertisement - they are happy, courteous, conscientious, respectful and respected – why not pay us a visit to see for yourself? To arrange this please contact Louise Yarrington, Head of Humanities Faculty or Julie Hannah, Headteacher’s PA.
Please find attached a person specification, job description, a letter from our Headteacher and the necessary application form. We look forward to receiving your application.

Langley School staff, governors and students are committed to the safeguarding and welfare of students and staff. Please note that Disclosure & Barring Service clearance at the appropriate level will be required for this post.
