The Governors of Harrytown Catholic High School wish to appoint a School Lay Chaplain to work with school staff and leaders, to ensure that the Catholic mission and ethos of the school is maintained and that spiritual values are safeguarded.  We retained our Outstanding judgement during our denominational inspection (March 2017).  The person appointed will be able to work on his/her own initiative with enthusiasm and commitment. The successful candidate will be a practising Catholic with a deep sense of faith commitment and have an approachable and friendly way of relating to young people. The ability, resilience and willingness to earn the respect of our pupils, staff, governors and families is essential.  Our school serves a diverse population which is a microcosm of society in our borough both socially, economically and in respect of faith background.  Pastoral care, community and relationships are rooted at the core of this role and are integral to our mission and ethos. The person appointed to the post of Lay Chaplain will need to have diverse skills and interests underpinned by a well-articulated faith.  The nature of the role will require the person to be a practising Catholic with a strong faith and commitment to the schools’ mission, ethos and founding principles.
