Job Description

Required April 2017 or possibly before

Chelmsford County High School for Girls is one of the most successful girls’ selective schools in the country.  This is, therefore, an ideal opportunity for a well-qualified teacher of Religious Studies to gain experience teaching some of the most motivated and able students in the county.

We are seeking to appoint a graduate teacher, with a holistic view of the subject, to lead the teaching of Religious Studies.  You would be required to teach Religious Studies at KS3 & KS4 and for an appropriately qualified candidate there would also be the opportunity to teach Philosophy, Ethics and Theology at KS5, and contribute to the school’s Enrichment Programme.

At KS3 students follow a course inspired by the new Essex agreed syllabus; at KS4 all students follow a Core RS scheme with a third of them opting for the full GCSE course. We currently follow both the old and reformed AQA RS syllabus. Sixth Form uptake of the subject is rising and in Year 13 we are in the final year of delivering the old Edexcel Philosophy of Religion and Ethics course. In Year 12 we are now following the reformed OCR course in Philosophy, Ethics and Theology.

The Governing Body is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share in this commitment.  The post is subject to an enhanced DBS (previously DBS) Clearance.
