Maternity Cover

Required for September 2018 until the return of the substantive post-holder (likely to be February 2019)

The Governors wish to appoint an enthusiastic and well-qualified English teacher (maternity cover) to join this outstanding school. The successful candidate will contribute to a department that prides itself on very high standards of teaching and learning. As in all of our appointments, we are looking for a teacher who has a passion for providing an excellent holistic education for students and who would be committed to promoting the school’s distinctive Catholic/Christian ethos.

St Mary’s is a very successful, popular and happy school, rated Outstanding by the Diocese and Ofsted. We became an academy in 2013 and enjoy outstanding facilities in a new building, which opened in 2011. We are also very popular with parents and are one of the most over-subscribed schools in the north-east. We have around 1,150 students in the main school and our Sixth Form, of over 200, is expected to grow to 300 in the next three years.

In addition, we are a Teaching School, increasingly engaged in school to school support, initial teacher training and CPD and leadership development across the region. As a result, further opportunities for professional development are wide-ranging and an added attraction for potential new staff.

At St Mary’s, English is a very well-established and highly respected department with excellent results.
Recent highlights include:
• At GCSE level, 89% of pupils achieved a Grade 4 or higher, 75% Grade 5+ and 38% Grade 7+ in 2017
• GCSE Progress Score +0.62 and at the 12th percentile nationally in 2017 and the best for disadvantaged pupils in the North East of England
• 100% A*-C in A Level English Literature in 2017
• 86% A*-C in A Level English Language in 2017
• Over 93% A*-C in both English A Levels over the past 3 years.

Above all, the Governors wish to appoint a teacher with:-
• A clear commitment to nurturing and promoting the school’s distinctive ethos
• A passion for providing the best possible holistic education for all students
• A commitment to maximising achievement through excellence in teaching and learning
• An excellent track record as a classroom teacher.
