What skills and experience we're looking for

The successful candidate should:

  • Have strong subject knowledge
  • Have ambition and a passion for learning
  • Be able to deliver outstanding classroom practice
  • Have high expectations of all learners
  • Be able to work collaboratively with others

What the school offers its staff

We have outstanding rates of staff retention, and our staff are happy and love working for the school. We offer a bonus scheme for staff payable after every five years of unbroken service. Other perks of working at the school include free drinks in the staffroom and free breakfast twice a week. Furthermore, the firm and clear behaviour management systems we have in place enable our teachers to focus on teaching in the classroom, rather than managing behaviour, and our investment in staffing over many years ensures that teacher pupil ratios – particularly in Key Stage 4 and 5 – are very low and on a par with many independent schools.

Further details about the role

Science at Sacred Heart is very high-achieving, in summer 2022:-

  • 86% of pupils achieved 2 grades at 4 or higher at GCSE Combined Science
  • 100% of pupils achieved 3 grades at 6 or higher in GCSE Separate Sciences
  • 100% of pupils achieved grades A* - B in A-level Physics

Sacred Heart Catholic School is a very successful and over-subscribed 11-19 school in Southwark, London. We are a Catholic school with very strong moral values and a traditional approach to behaviour and discipline; we believe in honesty and trust.

Sacred Heart School consistently achieves outstanding academic results far above local and national averages in every subject area. We also have an exceptional record of helping our pupils to achieve more than they think is possible: we are regularly in the top 5% of all secondary schools in the UK on Academic Value Added tables, and were 10th in the country this year. Our excellent record of achievement is a testament to the strength, determination and sheer hard work of this community and this has been reflected in our most recent OFSTED inspection in which we achieved “outstanding” in all categories.

Sacred Heart school prides itself on its community and family ethos, and making every member of staff feel a part of that ethos. We are a standalone academy that treats our employees as people rather than functionaries. Once a week there is directed time after school, but otherwise we trust staff to work in the ways that best suit them, whether that is working in our staff workroom after school, or taking their marking and planning home.

Commitment to safeguarding

Sacred Heart School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All offers of employment are subject to an Enhanced DBS check, and where applicable, a prohibition from teaching check will be completed for all applicants. Sacred Heart School is fully committed to equality and to valuing diversity as an employer and a provider of education.
