Teacher of Religious Education
We are an excellent school with a secure track record of dynamic and enthusiastic teaching and learning. Our school is the second highest performing non-selective school in Kent, as has been published recently by the Department of Education.
RE is central to school life and we seek to appoint a well-qualified teacher who is able to teach all key stages in this subject. The position will require the ability to teach GCSE (Edexcel A, Catholic Christianity with Judaism) with the potential to teach A Level (OCR – Philosophy of Religion, Religious Ethics and Development of Christian Thought). The post would suit either an experienced or newly qualified teacher who is a practicing Catholic or a member of another Christian denomination who is fully supportive of the school’s Catholic identity. The successful candidate will join four other full time RE specialists in a very successful department that is highly valued by students and parents.
Our students are a credit to the values of our school, and all visitors to our school comment positively on the excellent standards of behaviour, courtesy and good nature of the students they encounter whilst spending time here at St Simon Stock Catholic School.
The ideal candidate will:
• Be able to inspire and motivate students to achieve their full potential, and instill a love of learning RE, both through practical and theory work.
• Be part of a team and will contribute to the ongoing development of this successful RE department.
• Be comfortable promoting Catholic values and ethos, but does not necessarily have to be Catholic.
We welcome applications from both experienced and newer members of the teaching profession.
