Teacher of RE job summary

RE department at St Bede’s

We are seeking a teacher of RE to join us from September, on either a full-time or part-time basis. We invite applicants to indicate their availability on their application form.

Please note, we will review applications upon receipt and as such, this vacancy may close earlier than the deadline stated.

St Bede's has a thriving and enthusiastic RE department. You will be working in a very supportive team of experienced teachers, who are dedicated to the academic and spiritual learning and development of each student. The RE department plays a special part in leading and promoting the overall ethos of the school and aims to be at the forefront of its success.

As a core subject, all students are taught RE throughout the school, with all students sitting GCSE in Year 11. Pupils at Key Stage 3 study Christianity, as well as aspects of other major world faiths. In addition to core RE, students are taught in their respective denominational groups where they explore their beliefs, traditions and experiences, which contribute to an Ecumenical Christian view of the world. We aim to inspire all students to achieve their full potential and place great emphasis on securing students’ success at GCSE.

We study AQA at both GCSE and A level. Many students choose to go on and study Religious Studies, Philosophy and Ethics at A level and continue with this subject at further education. There is also a compulsory RE course in the Sixth Form that aims to explore Philosophy, Christian ethics and moral decision making in the modern world. Results in 2019 at GCSE were 85% 9-4 with 41% achieving 9-7. At A level, the subject is popular and results strong.

We would welcome applications from motivated, enthusiastic teachers, passionate about Religious Education and dedicated to raising standards of students' learning. It is important that you are supportive in our ecumenical approach and ethos which permeates through both the department and school. Applications are welcome from experienced teachers and from ECTs who would benefit from a comprehensive induction programme.

Why work for us?

- St Bede's is a good place to work. Staff are friendly and supportive of one another: relationships between staff and pupils were recognised by Ofsted as 'exceptionally strong'.

- ECTs benefit from a well developed and comprehensive induction period programme. More experienced teachers are given the opportunity to participate in training which will help them to develop skills needed for middle and senior management roles.

- There are good on-site catering facilities. Staff are able to use the fitness facilities free of charge and to participate in sports activities.

- Music is a big part of school life and staff are welcome to join our senior choir and instrumental groups.

- We have a social event at the end of each term as well as occasional staff trips to the theatre.

- The school is situated in Redhill, a commuter belt town in the Surrey Fringe area. We are close to the M25 and there are good transport links to London and the South Coast from Redhill station which is about 15 minutes walk from the school. We also benefit from being within walking distance of beautiful countryside . Many staff live locally, others commute from Guildford, South London, Kent and East & West Sussex.
