Head of Religious Studies

St George's College, WeybridgeSurrey

Religious Studies is a dynamic Department that lies at the heart of the College, reflecting and embodying our core values. Its fundamental ambition is to develop in our students a depth of knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other major world religions while also considering and investigating alternative world views and wider philosophy. 

Our students are encouraged to debate and interrogate fundamental questions about the meaning and purpose of life, right and wrong, the nature of reality and God. Ultimately, we aim to develop a sensitivity and respect for others and for different faiths and beliefs, which are vital in combatting prejudice and discrimination. 

Our staff are encouraged to contribute to and enrich life at the College outside the classroom through spiritual and pastoral activities. They are also expected to play an active part in our thriving House system, which embodies and reinforces the strength of the Georgian family. The department also works closely with the Chaplaincy, identifying and enabling outreach opportunities, such as the work currently undertaken by Upper Sixth students in local primary schools. We also run a fortnightly enrichment programme for Lower Sixth students and teach non-examined Religious Studies lessons once a week to Year 11 students. 

The deadline for application is by 4pm on Friday 5 February but please note, applications will be reviewed upon receipt and shortlisted candidates may be invited for remote interview (via Teams) at short notice.

Single staff accommodation may be available on-site.
