Full-Time Permanent Director of Catholic Life
(Required for April or September 2019)
Highly Competitive Salary
This is a new post, designed to attract a highly ambitious and capable candidate. The post will deliver leadership of our Catholic Life and Curriculum RE, and will be firmly connected to the Senior Team. The post-holder will be supported to shape and utilise a staff & pupil Chaplaincy team, future leadership within the RE Department, and whole-school Catholic Life.
This post is ideal preparation for Catholic Deputy Headship and the successful candidate can expect to make a credible application for those posts in a few years’ time. Candidates will need to already have significant leadership experience at a middle and perhaps even at a senior level.
The RE Department is fully staffed with talented teachers. It is progressive, effective and high-achieving; attainment is in the top 10% of schools nationally, and the whole school itself is enjoying consecutive years of breaking its own examination performance records at GCSE & A Level. Students are keen to learn, colleagues are supportive, and there is a strong sense of inclusion and belonging where our Catholic ethos pervades all aspects of school life. A key pre-application read is found on our website – click the link to our January 2018 S48 Inspection Report; outstanding in every category.
The School is enjoying a remarkable season of change and development – it is an exciting journey of expansion and investment. Part of that includes a £5m building programme which will, in the next few weeks, deliver, amongst many other things, a brand new RE department and facility.
This is a key post requiring a practising Catholic. Visits to the school are warmly encouraged by contacting Mrs Rebecca Faulkner resources on 01279 654 901 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
The closing date will be 28th November midday, with interviews on the 30th November.
