The post represents an exciting opportunity to be part of a vibrant and ambitious Academy working within the Ted Wragg Multi-Academy Trust.

Our Religious Education Department has an excellent reputation within the school, and has attracted a number of visits from other educational establishments interested in our success over the years. Since 2002, the department has grown from a position where no students were taking GCSE exams in R.E to the point now where almost all students do so.  R.E. results are consistently amongst the best in the school, and compare very favourably with other schools who enter full cohorts into R.E examinations. The Department boasts talented, experienced staff who have a passion for the subject and who have a great working relationship and team spirit. Resources are plentiful and the three R.E. teachers each have their own room located next to each other.  In summary, the Religious Education department is in brilliant shape, but could be developed further in fresh, exciting new ways by the new Head of Department.
