Coloma Convent Girls’ School in Shirley is proudly recognised as a World Class School and is one of the top non-selective secondary schools in the country. We are consistently oversubscribed and have received four ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted and four ‘Outstanding’ Diocesan reports and ‘World Class Schools’ status (September 2017).
We seek to appoint a colleague who can complement the current curriculum offer as well as investigate opportunities to broaden the student’s experience, including developing other courses and/or enrichment activities. Applications are considered from both experienced and newly qualified teachers. Candidates should be able to teach across the age and ability range to A-level and to provide evidence of successful teaching strategies and excellent organisational skills.
Coloma is very proud of its history of academic achievement; this is due to hard work, focus and dedication to Coloma’s ethos shown by pupils and staff alike. In 2017 we achieved remarkable exam results with 0.6 Progress 8 at GCSE and 66% A*-B at A-Level.
We value excellent relationships within a caring community. Extra-curricular activities play a huge part in the life and success of the school and pastoral systems are extremely strong.
