Teacher of Philosophy (Maternity)

Full-time/part-time (see below for detail)

We require for September 2018 a highly motivated, inspiring and committed teacher of Philosophy to cover the maternity leave of a colleague.  The successful applicant will join a dynamic, friendly and supportive part of the school community, consistently achieving good results through hard work and enthusiasm.  You should be able to deliver high quality teaching and learning and have a clear focus on the achievement of young people.

This post could be part-time as a teacher of Philosophy or full-time if you are able to offer Sociology or another additional subject.

The post would be an excellent opportunity for either an experienced teacher, or an NQT with the capacity to rise to the challenge of teaching A Level.   The ability to teach Sociology or an alternative second subject would be advantageous.

In September 2017, Ofsted graded the school as “good”. The Ofsted inspector said that it is “the kind of school you would want your own child to attend” and a senior Department of Education visitor commented that the inspection report “read like a report from an outstanding school”.

Completed application forms, along with a covering letter and person specification should be returned by email to Please indicate whether you are looking for full or part-time hours.  If you are seeking part-time then please also detail your availability.

Closing date:        9am Monday, 11th June 2018

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
