 ‘An outstanding school across all categories’ (Ofsted) 

We are seeking an outstanding and dynamic Head of Religious Studies & Philosophy who will play a key role in the leadership of this successful school. 

The successful candidate will lead by example, be an excellent and enthusiastic teacher and be confident they are able to deliver high quality lessons. The desire to share good practice with the team and a can-do attitude is essential.  The successful candidate should be passionate about religious education across all key stages, and above all, be an inspirational practitioner.   

This will be an exciting opportunity for someone with vision and enthusiasm to join our ambitious and high-achieving team. 

As one of the top grammar schools in the country, our students consistently attain a high level of academic achievement.  Around three-quarters of our A-level results are at A*, A or B grade and almost all of our leavers go on to university, many of them to the most competitive institutions, including 10-12% to Oxford and Cambridge. 

We are equally proud of our extensive extra curricular provision, the warmth of the relationships between pupils and staff, and of the quality of our pastoral care. 

LRGS is a state day and boarding school, with 1030 pupils between the ages of 11 and 18, including a vibrant Sixth Form of 350 students.  One of just 38 state boarding schools in the UK, around 180 of our pupils are boarders. 

LRGS is located in the attractive University City of Lancaster, which is approximately 2.5 hours from London by train and an hour from Manchester.  We are surrounded by the stunning landscapes of the Lake District, Morecambe Bay and the Yorkshire Dales.
