The school is looking to appoint a committed, enthusiastic individual as a teacher of Religious Education. The RE department has a crucial role to play in delivering the values of our Christian ethos.

The school received an outstanding judgement in its most recent SIAMS inspection and we seek a teacher that will support our drive for excellence. The department has two specialist RE teachers including the Head of RE who are supported by other colleagues in the delivery of the curriculum.

Following the retirement of a part-time teacher who was the former Head of RE we are looking for a specialist teacher of RE who has the ability to teach a humanities subject. This would ideally be History, although the ability to teach Geography would also be considered.

It will require the successful candidate to work 4 days in week A and 3 days in week B.

Shortlisting will take place on Thursday 24th May, and interviews will be held on Friday 25th May.

Due to the very short timeframes, school will contact you by email or telephone to confirm that you have been invited for interview.
