About St Augustine's Catholic College

St Augustine’s is amongst the highest performing schools in the country. We
regularly are in the top 10% of schools nationally for progress and achievement (among nonselective schools) at GCSE. We also have a record of high achievement at A level, and an
established record of students accessing their first choice of university, including Russell group and Oxbridge.

As noted in our latest diocesan section 48 inspection in 2020, “The behaviour of pupils is
exemplary, with excellent support and guidance provided by the pastoral team. Pupils have a deep respect for themselves and are acutely alert to the needs of others within and beyond the school community.” The pastoral care at St Augustine’s ensures that our students grow into well-rounded young people, ready to take their place in society. It is our belief that there is much more to school life than the rigour of examinations and we strive to stimulate our students in order that they may become caring, compassionate human beings.

As a Catholic school our values are explicitly Christian. You do not have to be of the Catholic faith to apply for this post, though we are seeking someone who will support our ethos with a high degree of visibility, commitment and energy and who will serve the whole college community academically, pastorally and spiritually. Many staff are involved in co-curricular activities, and the willingness to be involved is an especial recommendation.
