The position will commence as soon as possible on a full time basis and the successful applicant will be paid £90 a day PAYE.

The School

Ofsted rated the school as 'Good'.

The school is a 300-year-old Church of England, mixed, comprehensive, 11-18 High School in Croydon with an excellent track record at both GCSE and A Level over many years.

It serves the Archdeaconry of Croydon, giving priority through its admission arrangements to children from Church of England and other Christian families who live within that area. 10% of places are given to local families geographically. It is a small secondary school, with an admission number in Year 7 of 108. The strong Sixth Form has 138 students (2018-19 numbers).

The curriculum in Years 7-11 follows a traditional model, with emphasis on the core subjects of English, Maths, Science, French and German, History, Geography, Physical Education and Religious Studies, as well as on artistic and practical subjects such as Art, Music, Drama and Technology. Food Technology is a very popular subject within the school, as is Computing, which is well established at both GCSE and A Level.

In the Sixth Form the range of subjects increases to include Economics, Business Studies, Psychology, Sociology, Government and Politics, Law, Spanish, courses in both English Language and English Literature, as well as Further Maths.

The school also enjoys a high level of participation in extra-curricular activities ranging from concerts and sporting success to exchanges with both France and Germany and charitable connections home and abroad.
