Required for September 2023

In partnership with the Archdiocese of Birmingham, the Lumen Christi Board of Directors and School Standards Committee of St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School are seeking to appoint an outstanding Head of Humanities from September 2023.

St Thomas Aquinas is a large and thriving Catholic comprehensive school in the south of Birmingham. Along with seven local primary schools, it is part of growing Catholic Multi Academy. It is a place where staff and students from all faiths live out the school mission. Examination results in summer 2022 were excellent the school in the top 25% of all schools nationally. Building on the ‘Good’ judgement by OFSTED, the Catholic Schools Inspectorate recently judged the school to be ‘Outstanding’ in all areas. As a result, we are an oversubscribed school and becoming more and more popular with families.

The school has improved using a knowledge-based approach; the highest standards of behaviour and academic challenge for all regardless of background. St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School is unapologetically ambitious for the children we serve.

This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic teacher and leader who has the ability, confidence and talent to make a huge impact to our students’ education from day one. We are looking for a History specialist who:

  • is enthusiastic about recent developments in the Humanities curriculum and leading colleagues through these.
  • is passionate about teaching practical across key stages 3, 4 & 5
  • has high expectations of themselves and their students.
  • has a proven track record of raising attainment through their teaching and learning, making a positive impact within their own classroom.
  • has a commitment to working collaboratively as part of a team. 

This is a wonderful opportunity for the right candidate to build something special and make a huge contribution in a major Catholic comprehensive school. 

Prospective candidates are encouraged to informally come and visit the school.   

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.  An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful candidates. All candidates need to complete the CES teacher application form.


Closing date for applications is 9am on Friday 28th April 2023.

Shortlisting will take place on Friday 28th April 2023.

Interviews will take place on Tuesday 2nd May 2023.
