About the employer

St Joseph's College is an outstanding, oversubscribed mixed Catholic grammar school with a 90 year tradition of excellence. The school is part of the Edmund Rice family of schools, founded by the Christian Brothers and following the charism of Blessed Edmund Rice. Our Catholic ethos is very important to us but not all our staff are Catholic. We embrace diversity and welcome staff from all backgrounds and traditions. All of our students take a full and active role in all aspects of the religious life of the school. All staff, regardless of religious commitment, uphold the Catholic ethos of the school.
As a semi-selective school in Years 7 – 11, students must attain a standardised score of 105 in the entrance examination to be eligible for one of the 150 places. We are always oversubscribed and our intake reflects the ethnic, cultural and social diversity of the region. We have over 1,100 fantastic students on roll, including a sixth form of 400 drawing successful from schools across the city and beyond. We offer a full range of GCSEs and A level courses and academic standards are consistently very high – we expect the best for and from our students.
We love our 1932 building, but in the last few years several million pounds has been invested in our premises. We have two purpose built sixth form blocks, a specialist Sports Hall and the school owns extensive playing fields beyond our site.
Along with traditional values of exemplary behaviour, hard work and the highest standards, we embrace leading-edge practice and an ethos of continued staff development. Subject expertise is very important to our knowledge-engaged teaching and we are committed to lifelong learning and self-development. We are nationally recognised, having been awarded Teaching School Hub status, meaning that we lead on teacher training, the Early Career Framework and the delivery of all NPQs for the 317 schools of Cheshire East and Cheshire West and Chester. This is a fantastic place to build your career.
