An exciting opportunity has arisen for an RE teacher to join the Humanities faculty in our successful, vibrant and culturally diverse school.

The Humanities faculty 

The successful candidate would join a welcoming and inspiring humanities faculty. We are passionate about our subjects and success; our high uptake at KS4 and examination results reflect this. Our humanities office is the hub of our team and we regularly meet up to have a coffee, reflect, and support one another throughout the school day. We have lots of cross-faculty collaboration and share in one another’s successes. Humanities teachers are popular among students, and we run many extracurricular activities including the Eco club and Debate Mate.

Religious education at Whitefield School

RE is a popular subject among students. In year 7, they study the six major faiths to understand the basis of religious belief, and in year 8, students apply these beliefs to further their understanding of religious views towards topics such as morality, the afterlife, the environment & evil and suffering. Students will focus on fundamental teachings and beliefs and illustrate how this influences the lives of theists.  

KS3 is a foundation for the KS4 Edexcel course focusing on the necessary exam techniques to prepare them for GCSE. As a result, we are looking forward to great results with our current year 10 and 11 cohort, and the students are currently implementing these techniques into their work using GCSE exam-style questions, this has been hugely successful this year and is evident in their progress scores. 

KS4 students follow the Edexcel 9-1 GCSE, studying Christianity (50%) Religion, Philosophy and Social Justice, and Islam (50%) Religion and Ethics. Our GCSE RE students at Whitefield School are open-minded, keen to debate and discuss religious their own beliefs. Students are very dedicated to their studies in RE and we aim to recruit an RE teacher as invested in their success as they are. 

The successful candidate will have access to continuous professional development through our dedicated internal and external CPD programme. The school also offers various benefits to all employees through our extensive wellbeing programme. Flexible working could be considered.
