History Teacher (for maternity cover)

We seek to appoint a well-qualified History Teacher to cover maternity leave from February half-term 2018. Candidates should be able to teach across the age and ability range to A-Level and to provide evidence of successful teaching strategies and excellent organisational skills.

Coloma is very proud of its history of academic achievement; this is due to hard work, focus and dedication to Coloma’s ethos shown by pupils and staff alike. In 2017 we achieved remarkable exam results with a 0.6 Progress 8 at GCSE and 66% A*-B at A-Level.

We are an Associate School of the Royal Society and a Specialist Science College; 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 strong.

 Applications via Recruitment Agencies will not be accepted. 

Coloma Convent Girls’ School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.


      • We are delighted that you are interested in a career with Coloma Convent Girls’ School – the UK’s highest-achieving comprehensive Catholic girls’ school.

        Coloma is the holder of many national excellence awards and has consistently achieved a record of ‘Outstanding’ judgements in all its Ofsted and Diocesan full inspection reports. In December 2016 the school attained World Class School status. We are extremely proud of this, particularly as Coloma is one of just 34 schools in the country to have received this prestigious award.

        At Coloma we have a tradition of combining both high expectations for all our students and a curriculum that is forward-looking and appropriate to the needs of the 21st century. Throughout its history, Coloma has been popular with parents of children of all abilities and there continues to be a huge demand for places.

        We are proud of our success as a genuine comprehensive school and of our reputation for providing a challenging secondary education within a happy and caring environment. This is built firmly upon a belief in the importance of establishing a strong partnership between home and school.

        We regard our teaching staff as the most important resource we have. We provide continuous opportunities for development for all of our teaching and support staff through collaboration and the sharing of good practice.

        Do not be put off applying for a post if you are not a practising Catholic. We welcome applications from colleagues 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.

        Thank you for taking the time to consider the vacancy we have and we hope to receive an application.


        Very best wishes,

        Jackie Johnson
        Acting Headteacher
