1 year fixed term contract

We are looking for either a graduate or an experienced teacher to join our collaborative and successful Theology, Philosophy and Religion department. The position demands high professional standards and excellent subject knowledge in order to teach Theology, Philosophy and Religion up to and including A level.

The successful candidate will teach a 0.5 timetable. The appointment of this post is flexible in nature and therefore it can be a part-time teaching appointment with no co-curricular or pastoral duties. However, should a more comprehensive role be sought then there is the possibility for the successful candidate to play a more active role in the pastoral and co-curricular life of the School. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a fun, forward-thinking School which is committed to academic excellence; continual development of staff; and innovative teaching and learning strategies. This is within the context of outstanding pastoral care and co-curricular provision to ensure the best possible holistic pupil experience. .

If you like to work collaboratively and welcome the opportunity to develop as a practitioner, we offer a comprehensive induction and CPD programme for all levels of staff, competitive remuneration package, support with teacher training for unqualified teachers and outstanding, well-equipped facilities.

Closing date: 9.00am, Monday 27 March 2023

Interview date: w/c 27 March 2023

Applications will be assessed in order of receipt and interviews may occur at any stage after applications are received. We reserve the right to appoint before the closing date and therefore invite interested candidates to apply as soon as possible.

St John’s School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo safeguarding screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).  The School may carry out online searches on shortlisted candidates and all applications will be required to provide details of their online profile, including social media accounts, as part of their application.

The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are “spent” unless they are “protected” under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.”
