Religious Education enables students to explore their sense of self, their relationships with others and how they understand their place in the world: it enlivens, enriches and enlightens.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and ambitious Subject Leader of Religious Studies from September 2021. This exciting role will provide you with the opportunity to inspire and lead a team of subject specialists so that students and staff thrive personally and academically through Religious Studies and Philosophy & Ethics.

You will enjoy many opportunities to lead co-curricular projects, experiential visits and to work collaboratively with external speakers and institutions. You will also bring your uniqueness to the team and your passion for excellence and innovation.

Relationships between students and staff are excellent at Waddesdon. The most recent SIAMS inspection (March 2018) celebrated this in the following way:

“Relationships are shaped by the focus on the twin values of dignity and respect. There is a palpable sense of Waddesdon being a safe and secure place to be, of a community built on good humour, mutual support and love of self and neighbour; this is seen inlessons and around the school.”

Waddesdon School is an oversubscribed all ability 11–18 school, set in rural Buckinghamshire. The school is 30 minutes away from Oxford and also within easy commuting distance from Milton Keynes. There are just under 1000 students on roll, including 250 in the Sixth Form. The school has an excellent reputation for CPD and recognises and values the contributions of all staff.

There are realistic expectations regarding balancing family and leisure time and workload. Governors have recently changed the Admissions Policy to include children of staff members.

We encourage you to contact the school for a phone conversation and to discuss your interest in the post. The description of the department, the full SIAMS report, and our termly newsletter, The Waddesdon Voice will give you a flavour of the culture and ethos of our school and the department. Testimonials from our staff about the culture and ethos of our school can also be found on our website in our ‘Working at Waddesdon’ section.
