Charter Academy is one of the most improved schools in the country, after undergoing a transformation that was recently praised by former Prime Minister David Cameron. Join our school to help us shape brighter futures for our students.

This is an exciting opportunity for a passionate RE Teacher to join and contribute to the success of an academy that believes in providing a first class education and giving every pupil the opportunity to go to university or pursue the career of their choice. Due to the expansion of the academy, there may be additional opportunities for responsibility.

This role would be suitable for an experienced teacher or an NQT.

The ideal candidate will:

  • have recent experience delivering the current KS3/4 RE curriculum with some KS3 Humanities
  • be a committed team player
  • have the ability to engage and inspire pupils
  • be committed to Ark’s ethos of high expectations and no excuses

We were recently awarded a Pupil Premium Award for our work in providing a high quality education for students from low income backgrounds. This would not have been possible without great teachers, which is why we offer the best training and support for all of our staff at every stage of their career.

Staff wellbeing is priority at Charter Academy. All meetings are scheduled within the working day and our teachers have more free periods than local authority schools.

As a teacher at Charter Academy, you will be part of Ark, an international charity and one of the UK's most successful multi-academy trusts, with a network of 35 schools in 4 locations across the country. Benefits of being part of the Ark network include:

  • A salary 2.5% higher than the main scale teacher salaries
  • Twice as many training days as standard and network-wide events with Ark colleagues, held by the best minds in education
