What skills and experience we're looking for

Required for September 2024 a well-qualified teacher of Religious Studies to teach across the age and ability range, including GCSE and A Level. A Subject Leader (TLR2a) role is available for a suitably qualified candidate. Religious Studies is an integral part of the Humanities Faculty and is a very popular subject at GCSE and A Level. We are therefore looking for an enthusiastic and imaginative individual to help all our students to ‘achieve their potential and enjoy the journey’, joining a friendly, supportive and committed Faculty. The enrichment offered to pupils is extensive including local, national and international trips and visits as well as clubs and themed events in school. The friendly and collaborative work environment in the Humanities Faculty encourages continuous professional development and career progression for staff. We welcome applications from ECTs as well as experienced teachers.

What the school offers its staff

Visitors tell us that our school is a friendly, lively and stimulating community where we emphasise the importance of the individual’s contribution and take pleasure in sharing and celebrating achievement. They commend the good behaviour of the pupils and their thirst for knowledge. Bishop’s is a diverse community that offers mutual support and encouragement and expects everyone within it to respect others’ heritage, cultures, religion and beliefs. We hope that the values, self-discipline and sense of personal worth that pupils gain here will be a support throughout their lives as British and Global Citizens. We welcome applications from candidates from racially minoritised backgrounds and from other groups that are underrepresented in the UK education system.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the school at a time of growth and development. English and literacy make a huge contribution to the life of the school and we are looking for a candidate who will help to extend this work.

Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ School is heavily over-subscribed and has around 950 pupils on roll including the Sixth Form. We are fully committed to our values of teamwork, respect, honesty, trust, kindness and ambition. The school completed its most recent Ofsted inspection in December 2022 and was judged to continue to be Outstanding. However, we are not driven by Ofsted and our priorities lie in supporting our pupils to develop their knowledge, skills and character through the ‘Bishop’s 360’ model. The school has benefited from a total rebuild on the same site and enjoys excellent state of the art facilities. BHGS holds International School Status, the Music Mark and is a Fairtrade School. Hatfield is within easy reach of London and other areas and the London Fringe Allowance is payable.

The school's Admissions’ Code gives priority places to children of staff and we give high priority to staff development. Staff are able to apply for our Professional Development Award which provides bursary payments to help finance CPD that goes beyond the school’s usual training programme.

We take safeguarding of our students extremely seriously and an enhanced disclosure will be sought through the Disclosure and Barring Service as part of the school’s pre-employment checks.
