About St Cuthbert Mayne School

St Cuthbert Mayne School is a Joint Roman Catholic & Church of England School that welcomes all students from across Torbay and South Devon regardless of their faith background. Our school community is made up of students and staff from Christian and non-Christian backgrounds who are respectful of our Christian ethos.

There are currently 920 on roll, including 120 students in the Sixth Form. In September 2021 we expect to be oversubscribed again for the first time in a number of years and this reflects the improvement journey we are on as a school. The teaching accommodation is of mixed age but well-resourced and maintained. During 2021, an exciting £3.6 million building project will start in the school, which will significantly improve the facilities for students and staff in our school.

It is an exciting time to be joining the school as we start the next phase of our journey to provide an outstanding, inspirational and challenging Christian education for all students. Our children only get one chance! As a result we have a relentless focus to ensure that our children get access to the best possible teaching through a vibrant and engaging curriculum so that they live life to the full both now and in the future. This will be a challenging but very rewarding post. If you want to work in a school that is committed to developing you as a professional and you want to make a difference to the life chances of our children then we want to hear from you.

The school was last inspected by Ofsted in November 2016 graded the school to be good, in every category. The statutory inspection of Anglican/Catholic Schools also conducted in November, graded the school to be good in all areas. Both reports can be found on the website www.st-cuthbertmayne.co.uk.
