Coloma Convent Girls' School

Coloma Convent Girls’ School in Shirley is recognised as one of the top non-selective secondary schools in the country. We are consistently oversubscribed and have received four ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted reports and ‘World Class Schools’ status (September 2017). In October 2019 Coloma received its fifth ‘Outstanding’ Diocesan Inspection report and in 2020 was named ‘Best School in Croydon’ in the Real Schools Guide.

Candidates should be able to teach History across the age and ability range to KS5, and to provide evidence of successful teaching strategies and excellent organisational skills. The ability to also teach Politics at KS5 would be an advantage, but not essential. Applications are considered from both experienced and newly qualified teachers.

Coloma is very proud of its history of academic achievement; this is due to the hard work, focus and dedication of staff and pupils which permeates the ethos that is Coloma. In 2019, the last year in which final public examinations were sat, we achieved remarkable exam results with a Progress 8 score of 0.89 at GCSE.

We value excellent relationships within a caring community. Extra-curricular activities play a huge part in the life and success of the school and pastoral systems are extremely strong.

WE OFFER

  • A school with a strong commitment to your professional development.
  • A working environment focused on Teaching and Learning and raising standards for all.
  • The opportunity to work in a team where your skills, enthusiasm and hard work will be appreciated.
  • The opportunity to work within the largest cosmopolitan centre outside of Central London, undergoing substantial redevelopment, growth and change.
  • A school that invests in enrichment and extra-curricular activities.

Do not be put off applying for a post if you are not a practising Catholic. We welcome applications from collegues who are supportive of the values of a Catholic School. Many of our staff are members of religious faiths other than Catholic and make an enormous contribution to the well-being of our students.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share the commitment. All appointments will be subject to a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure Barring Service check.
