Are you our new Law Teacher? This temporary, part time Teacher of KS5 Law post is available from 19 April 2021.
As it is to cover maternity leave, this fixed term contract would normally last for a maximum of 52 weeks or until the post holder returns should this be earlier. On these terms the role would be 0.80 FTE through to the end of August 2021, and beyond this would be expected to reduce to between 0.50 and 0.60 FTE (over 6 days per fortnight) from September 2021, based on the current post holder’s return to work plans. However, if you are able to offer other subjects to KS3 - KS5 for which we may have a need, we would be able to offer this as a full time post for the period from 1 September 2021 until 31 August 2022 if the candidate wishes.
The ability to support students with the Extended Project qualification would be desirable, as would the ability to work as a Sixth Form Tutor.
We are a successful and heavily oversubscribed 11-18 co-educational, Church of England, comprehensive school of over 1700 students, serving families from the whole of greater Bristol and beyond. We are located at the heart of the city and have a diverse student community with considerable parental support. Our diversity is a strength and something we celebrate. The Redcliffe Sixth Form Centre currently houses more than 600 students taken from our own school and from many other schools across the City.
The School is proud of its academic record, and in 2020 86.7% of GCSE grades were at grade 4 or above. 88.2% of students achieved 5 or more grade 4s or above. 44.1% of students achieved 3 or more grade 7s or above. Sixth form results are high with a 99.7% pass rate and 88.6% at grade C or above. 64% of grades were at grade B or above 34.5% at grade A or above. Most sixth form students continue on to Higher Education, including 10 awarded Oxbridge places, and 1 going to a university in America.
The School was judged in January 2012 and again in April 2015 to be outstanding by Ofsted, and outstanding in our church school (SIAMS) inspection, in each and every category. Ofsted judged Leadership and Management, Behaviour and Safety of Pupils, Quality of Teaching, Achievement of Pupils, and Sixth Form Provision, all as Outstanding.
The group of Social Science Post 16 subjects contain Psychology, Sociology, Politics, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, in addition to Law. It is led by the Post 16 Subject Coordinator and brings together the teachers of these various post-16 subjects to develop collaborative approaches to teaching and learning. Law is a popular subject with students progressing to follow Law related careers on leaving us.
