  • Be an excellent team player who sees the benefits of collaborative working
  • Have experience of coaching, mentoring and facilitating adult learning
  • Be able to manage and foster excellent relationships across the whole school community.

If you can say yes to everything on this list, then we would love to hear from you!

  • Highly motivated learners who are enthusiastic and resilient, proud of their school community and supportive towards their peers
  • A forward thinking and dynamic staff team
  • A well-resourced school building
  • A caring and positive working atmosphere inspired by our strong Catholic ethos (rated outstanding during our RE Inspection in April 2015) which is built on the school’s values of spirituality, love, respect and creativity.
