Our school is situated on the Cumbrian coast on the edge of the Lake District National Park and not as remote as you might imagine! It is an easy drive or rail journey to work along some of the most scenic routes in the UK and living in Cumbria might be just the lifestyle change to suit you, with relatively low house prices. It really doesn’t rain all the time!

We are have begun the construction of a £33m new school. This has been individually designed (not an ‘off-the-shelf’ model!). The new school building will open in Autumn 2018. We can also offer you:

· Support and development in leadership and management skills

· Comprehensive CPD

· The opportunity to mentor students in a successful Teaching School Alliance

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, inspirational and talented teacher to join our experienced team of middle leaders. You will lead the RE department and the chaplaincy provision at the school. We want a person who is passionate about learning and teaching in their specialist field, including KS5 work, and who is willing to take part in developing the vision, commitment and determination to raise standards across all levels and abilities. Ideally you should have some experience in leadership however your expertise and enthusiasm for your work is far more important to us. You don’t have to be a ‘U3’ teacher to apply for this role, but you must have the drive and ambition for the best outcomes for our students.

All applicants are subject to the requirements of the Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education guidelines.
