The Governors of this well-established, caring Roman Catholic school require an excellent and committed Teacher of Economics & Business Studies.
Please read our latest Ofsted report in which we are graded Good in all areas.
The Business and Economics Department at St Peter’s High School consists of a team of two teachers. We are a collaborative and supportive team. We value the input of all team members, no matter how many years of experience. To enhance existing strengths, we encourage professional development, through courses, teaching a different subject and we lead the Gloucestershire Business Studies teacher network.
Our vision is to inspire, challenge and engage our students in achieving aspirational outcomes where students exceed their potential.
The Business & Economics Department endeavours to be an Outstanding area of the school and prides its self on equipping students with fantastic subject knowledge and transferable skills for future careers
KS4 students are taught a broad and balanced curriculum across years 10 and 11. Students have five 55-minute lessons a fortnight. At KS4, students are offered EDUGAS GCSE Business Studies and L2 OCR CAM NAT Enterprise and Marketing; at KS5, can select Economics A-Level or a L3 CAM TECH in Business Studies.
St Peter’s R.C. High School & Sixth Form Centre is a mixed 11 – 18 school with 1535 pupils on roll. The Sixth Form consists of 344 students with KS5 students showing real leadership and progressing to a wide range of destinations, including prestigious universities and sought-after apprenticeships. 24% of our students receive Pupil Premium funding and 22% of our cohort has a special need or disability. We pride ourselves on our pastoral care and have invested in our Student Support Services who provide additional support for students with, for example, mental health issues and therefore frequently liaise with external agencies.
Our mission is to provide a rigorous and broad education within the context of a Christian environment. An understanding of the Roman Catholic faith, in line with the Gospel message, underpins the whole work of the school.
We expect all staff to contribute to the Christian ethos which is the cornerstone of St Peter’s.
