St Julie’s Catholic High School is a popular and oversubscribed school for girls, situated in the conservation area of Woolton Village, South Liverpool.  In September 2017, we moved into our brand new £23 million school building. 

GCSE and Sixth Form results in 2017 demonstrated excellent progress since our last inspection with a Progress 8 score in line with national and KS5 results that put us in the top 25% nationally for A Level and top 10% nationally for Level 3 BTEC. 

We are seeking to appoint a Teacher of English to join our successful and established Department for September 2018.  Our teaching staff in the department come with a very high level of combined experience and knowledge, and in Summer 2017 we achieved 72% A*-C at GCSE. The English Department comprises nine staff, and is well resourced with up to date technology.

You will be passionate about your subject, whilst transferring your knowledge in a creative and contextualised way in the classroom, and successfully plan and deliver consistently good lessons on a daily basis that both challenge our students and significantly advance their learning. You will be relentless in your pursuit of progress for each and every one of your students so they can achieve the outcomes they deserve, and grow into young adults that positively contribute to their community.  You will instil pride in the work they do and encourage their individuality and personal qualities.  Whether you are at the start of your career or an expert teacher we focus on what attributes you will bring to the school and most importantly what impact you will have on our students. 

As a Catholic School, we wish to appoint someone who shares our moral purpose of ensuring all our young people receive the best education possible, in a supportive environment, from staff who care about them.  You will be resilient, dynamic and passionate about tackling disadvantage and improving students’ life chances.  In return, you will find working at St Julie’s incredibly rewarding due to our vibrant and talented students, who have a real thirst for learning, and engage in the various opportunities offered to them.  You will join a highly professional, enthusiastic and dedicated staff that ensure St Julie’s is a welcoming, caring and supportive environment in which to learn and work.
