We require an inspirational and committed Head of RE to join our vibrant, ambitious and caring Catholic school. This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly motivated professional to join a very successful team.
The RE Department is at the centre of the life of our school, and Religious Education is one of our most popular subjects. Our students thrive on the high quality teaching and strong curriculum delivered by this team. The ideal candidate to lead this department will be an excellent classroom practitioner with a love of their subject and high expectations of their students. They will be an excellent communicator who can inspire young people, and their strong interpersonal skills will enable them to work collaboratively as part of a highly effective team. This role will also provide excellent professional development for the successful candidate, and will suit a practitioner who is committed to enhancing their own development as a leader. They will be committed to supporting the ethos and wider life of our school.
You should have experience of teaching RE to all abilities across Key Stage 3 and 4 for at least 3 years and have a strong understanding of the requirements of the GCSE specification. Experience and understanding of how to enhance student progress and attainment and develop other professionals are key, and a willingness to play a significant role alongside the Senior Leadership Team in developing the vision for the Catholic Life of our school is essential.
