Trinity Catholic High School is an outstandingly successful and oversubscribed 11-18 mixed comprehensive with 1680 students on roll. The school has been recognised as outstanding on five consecutive occasions by Ofsted and in our Section 48 inspection in December 2014. Our latest Ofsted inspection in March 2015 stated ‘the inspirational headteacher is passionately committed to helping every student develop a love of learning. Staff and governors share his enthusiasm and his very high expectations’; ‘a strong sense of shared moral purpose makes the school a very happy and purposeful place’. Our Catholic identity and mission spring from the passionate conviction that Christ and his church will transform the world through us.
Trinity is seeking to appoint an ambitious and talented Part time RE teacher to join our highly successfully school and RE department from January 2020. The candidate must be a practising Catholic and the ability to teach across key stages 3, 4 and 5 would be an advantage. Students follow the Edexcel syllabus at GCSE and OCR at A level. Religious Education GCSE is a core subject and all students are entered for this examination. Students are taught in mixed ability classes throughout the key stages. The RE department is forward- thinking and highly supportive. Teaching is judged as excellent and the quality of the RE curriculum outstanding.
Our Catholic mission is to enable all students to flourish academically and personally. As such pastoral care is exceptional as are the outcomes achieved by students at all key stages. In 2019:
• Percentage of 9-7 grades across the school: 38%. 34% of students achieved 5+ 9-7; 8% of all grades were the top grade 9. 38% of students achieved grades 9-7 in RE.
• The percentage of students at 5+ in English and Mathematics is 68%; 86% attained the standard pass in both English and Mathematics – both significantly higher than national figures.
