An inspirational, ambitious and highly motivated teacher is sought to lead a large and thriving department. The successful candidate will have a track record of securing academic success and a value driven vision for the leadership of a talented team of teachers and technicians.

St Christopher’s opened in 1958 and is an outstanding 11 - 18 Church of England Academy.Our caring community is based on a close partnership between staff, parents, pupils and governors and we foster strong links with local parishes and clergy, six of whom serve as School Chaplains. We emphasise pupils’ whole development, offering high standards of teaching in a range of courses to cater for all abilities, a wide extracurriculum and making a priority of spiritual nurture, with religious worship and teaching at the centre of school life. High academic achievement over the last four years resulted in national recognition with nearly 80% of our Year 11 pupils gaining at least five higher grades with English and Mathematics. Our Most recent Ofsted Inspection Report (2016) judged pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare as ‘Outstanding’.
