Required for September 2020, an inspirational and talented curriculum leader/teacher of Religious Education in an excellent department in an ‘outstanding’ school.
Results in RE are excellent and all students are entered for a Full Course GCSE (in 2019 68% of students achieved 4+). The subject is also studied at A level (in 2019 75% students achieved A*-C with 50% students achieving A*-A) and a number of students have gone on to study Theology, Religious Studies or Philosophy in higher education. There are excellent links with local faith organisations.
Ranelagh is an 11-18 coeducational, Anglican Academy (converter) which is oversubscribed and has an excellent reputation for academic achievement and positive school ethos. The school has had four ‘outstanding’ OFSTED reports, with Grade 1 across all areas, but we are not complacent and as such the provision for professional learning and development is something of which we are all very proud.
The teaching post may be suitable for a Newly Qualified Teacher whereas the Curriculum Leader job requires experience. Potential candidates may also wish to know that our admissions policy enables the school to prioritise the admission of children of staff recruited to posts in which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.
If you have a very good knowledge and understanding of the subject and you are an excellent teacher looking to develop your career in a supportive and progressive environment, we would welcome an application from you. Opportunities for personal development are excellent.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. All staff employed in the school must be aware that an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check will be undertaken.
