From September 2023 - This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic, well-qualified and inspirational teacher to join a highly successful Department.

Religious Studies is a core subject at Mayfield: all girls study the subject to GCSE and achieve outstanding results, with a similarly strong performance at A Level.

The ideal candidate will be someone who is able to encourage and nurture informed and independent thought in every student. The successful candidate could be an experienced teacher looking for a fresh challenge, or someone seeking their first teaching role, either as an ECT or as part of an initial teacher training programme (ITT).

The RS Department is important and influential in the School; working with colleagues of all disciplines, the Chaplaincy and the Headmistress to promote the ethos of the School and supporting a vibrant, diverse community of boarders and day girls.

Results are excellent at both GCSE and A Level, with girls going on to study at Oxbridge and the best Russell Group universities.

We offer excellent working conditions in an outstanding environment. Mayfield has its own salary scale and the salary package for this position will reflect the qualifications and experience of the successful candidate. All staff are expected to contribute to the extra-curricular life of the School. Accommodation is available for those involved in the boarding life of the School.
