Subject Leader – Religious Studies
Inner London Pay Scale
(TLR2C - £6,645)
We are a ‘popular and oversubscribed’ (Ofsted 2016), mixed, multi-ethnic 11-19 comprehensive school of 1,500 students. We require, from September 2019, a Subject Leader of Religious Studies to join our ‘diverse and harmonious learning community.’ (Ofsted 2016)
This exciting opportunity now exists for an ambitious and talented professional to join our successful school. The department has a consistently good track record at GCSE and in 2018 A Level outcomes were in the top 10% nationally for progress. Due to our broad and balanced curriculum model, 50% of our students chose to study Religious Studies at GCSE.
Our students make excellent progress supported by teaching, learning and assessment of the highest standard. Students ‘are extremely complimentary about their school and the staff who work with them. They want to do well, regularly attend and work hard.’ (Ofsted 2016)
We are a designated National Support School and actively committed to partnership work within London and further afield. We offer a supportive and vibrant learning community and outstanding CPD and the opportunity for collaborative working.
Ofsted recognised that ‘there is high-quality support available for those new in post’ enabling staff to ‘quickly integrate into the school’ and acknowledged our ‘supportive ethos where staff can share best practice and continue to develop new skills’. All staff also enjoy outstanding facilities including high quality IT provision and a fitness suite/gym that staff can use after school.
If you believe you have the passion, determination and high expectations to contribute to our vibrant and cohesive community, we look forward to hearing from you.
