Thank you for your interest in this key post as a temporary teacher of KS5 Subjects, to include any of Law, Sociology and Psychology, although the ability to teach other subjects may be of interest. This post/s are available from 1 September 2021. As it is to cover maternity leave, this fixed term contract will last for a maximum of 52 weeks or until the post holder returns should this be earlier. We currently expect the contract to end on 31 August 2022. An application for part-time work may be considered and the possible range of hours should be made clear in your application form.
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 contains Psychology, Sociology, Law, Politics, Philosophy, and Classical Civilisation. 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, Sociology and Psychology are all extremely popular subjects, with many students progressing to further study and to follow related careers on leaving us.
