We are looking for an enthusiastic Religious Studies teacher, who is able to offer a 2nd subject, to join our highly successful department. 

Applications are welcome from experienced teachers or NQTs. We offer an excellent NQT induction programme.


The Religion, Ethics and Philosophy Department (REP) at St Marylebone is a large and vibrant department. All students at the School study GCSE Religious Studies in Year 10, and students can opt to take the subject through to A-Level. GCSE results are excellent; of the 150 entries in 2019, 87% gained grade 9-4, with 64% achieving grade 7-9.  There were 39 grade 9s, 28 grade 8s and 29 grade 7s.  At A-Level, 100% of students gained A-C and 80% gained A-B.

In addition to offering GCSE and A-Level the department runs conference days for Year 11, 12 and 13 looking at the following topics: Year 11 study ‘Does religion still play an important role in society today?’, Year 12 explore ‘Assisted Suicide’ and Year 13 examine the Arab-Israeli Conflict.  We also run a Philosophy Society, which gives students an opportunity to have high calibre discussions on such topics as, ‘Are humans really rational animals?’, ‘Is reason superior to emotion?’ and ‘Is faith irrational?’ 

St Marylebone enjoys easy access to a wide range of local trips and speakers, which further develop the enrichment provision of the department.
