What the school offers its staff

The Governors of St Hilda’s wish to appoint a qualified and knowledgeable Teacher of Biology to work with our science department. The successful candidates would become part of an enthusiastic and hard-working team.

St Hilda’s, which is situated on the edge of Sefton Park in South Liverpool, is a welcoming and supportive community. We have high expectations of behaviour and there are excellent relationships between staff and students, based on mutual respect. St Hilda’s is a high-performing, over-subscribed comprehensive school with a Sixth Form.

In 2021, Ofsted judged the school to be Good and in 2017 SIAMS (church schools’ inspection) rated the school Outstanding. In 2023 SIAMS Keeping On Track report highlighted'The empowering and reflective Christian leadership of the Headteacher inspires and drives improvement and ensures that the school’s Christian distinctiveness and purpose are of the highest priority. She is strongly supported by the leaders of the Cornerstone Curriculum, the heart of the community’s Christian ethos and purpose. The Staff’s commitment to the shared vision and virtues ensures that they are effective role models and are helping to provide an environment in which all have the opportunity to flourish.'

We are unashamedly a Christian school.

As the successful candidate, you would be joining a very close-knit, highly supportive family. We have made some significant changes; becoming co-educational, changing our vision and values, but we know that we can improve further with the right people.
