Why work for us?

St Bede's is a good place to work. Staff are friendly and supportive of one another: relationships between staff and pupils were recognised by Ofsted as 'exceptionally strong'.
NQTs benefit from a well developed and comprehensive induction period programme. More experienced teachers are given the opportunity to participate in training which will help them to develop skills needed for middle and senior management roles.
There are good on-site catering facilities. Staff are able to use the fitness facilities free of charge and to participate in sports activities.
Music is a big part of school life and staff are welcome to join our senior choir and instrumental groups.
We have a social event at the end of each term as well as occasional staff trips to the theatre.
The school is situated in Redhill, a commuter belt town in the Surrey Fringe area. We are close to the M25 and there are good transport links to London and the South Coast from Redhill station which is about 15 minutes walk from the school. We also benefit from being within walking distance of beautiful countryside . Many staff live locally, others commute from Guildford, South London, Kent and East & West Sussex.
