About Redland Green School:

Redland Green school is a special place, with a community culture, in which everyone belongs. With our values of RESPECT, AMBITION and RESPONSIBILITY at the centre of all we do, we are immensely proud of the atmosphere of care and kindness felt in classrooms and corridors, offices and social spaces.

Whilst academic excellence is always a focus, it is our dedication to whole-person development that makes our school unique. We promote and prioritise staff learning just as much as student learning; believing that teachers and support staff, engaged in their own development, make the very best role models and create exciting classrooms for our students. We do not believe in a one-size fits all approach to education and so welcome teachers with a love of their subject, who are keen to learn more about their craft and plan effective and exciting lessons.

As such we offer an excellent CPD programme. This has been designed to sustain a professional and vibrant learning community, where every member of staff sees themselves as a learner and contributes to the continued development of the school. With this in mind, we are looking for staff with the creative energy and commitment to make the most of the opportunities available, fostering the very best climate for learning, for all our young people.

If appointed at RGS, you will be welcomed into a community that cares for you, challenges and champions your development, with a commitment to your career in education, that will be happy and successful.
