Work with Us

When people are applying to work in a school, they want to be confident that they will be happy, successful and fulfilled and that life in that school will suit them.

We are, of course, biased, but we firmly believe that St Cuthbert’s is a wonderful place to work. As a school and as a Catholic community, St Cuthbert’s is a place to be professionally stimulated, challenged and rewarded.

With over 100 staff, we have a career for everyone and employ a range of individuals in a variety of roles within our Teaching and Support staff. We are also flexible on working arrangements and have staff working, full, part and term time. We also engage the services of self-employed individuals and volunteers for specialist areas such as sports coaches or musicians.

St Cuthbert’s is a beautiful setting, hidden away in the West end of Newcastle. We have excellent facilities and superb transport links to the region and beyond. The school buildings are set in extensive grounds.

St Cuthbert’s is an excellent school. We are immensely proud of our strong academic success at all levels and and we achieve extraordinary things for and with the boys. We care deeply about results in all aspects of school life, but ultimately, we want the boys to leave as great men who are proud to have been a pupil at St Cuthbert’s.

To that end we have the highest expectations of the boys and of ourselves. We pride ourselves on a balance of tradition and innovation, proud of our heritage but willingly embracing the latest evidence-based research into educational practice and technology.

St Cuthbert’s is a thriving community. We are immensely proud of the way we foster a supportive and friendly atmosphere: relationships between all staff and between staff and boys are very strong.

St Cuthbert’s is a rewarding professional environment. We only recruit the best people to work here and the spark and energy of a talented staff body is infectious.

The Governors recognise the vital importance of staff.and we care very much about professional development; St Cuthbert’s staff as members of the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust can expect to be challenged and supported as they develop their careers.

St Cuthbert’s is not, of course, for everyone. The intensity and challenge of working in a boys school can, at times, be an all-embracing existence. However, if you believe in a genuine all-round education, value the opportunity to help shape lives, have energy, drive, a passion for your subject and a willingness to throw yourself into a busy and dynamic community, we would love to hear from you.

We hope that this website gives you an indication of what life is like at St Cuthbert's.

Salary: £53,380 - £58,959 (L6– L10)

Required from September 2024

Full time/permanent

St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School is looking to recruit, an enthusiastic and talented Head of Mathematics, who has a passion for mathematics and the drive to promote and inspire a love for, and excellence in this subject for all pupils and students. We are looking for someone who understands how important mathematics are to future success both in school and beyond. Moreover, we are looking for someone who believes that “mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about understanding” (Thurston).

This is a unique opportunity to be instrumental in the continued development of our mathematics department and in the life of our school. Mathematics is an essential part of a St Cuthbert’s education with high numbers of candidates choosing to study Advanced Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics in our Sixth Form. In recent years over 30% of all students in our Sixth Form study Advanced Level mathematics. The successful candidate will lead a department of highly qualified subject specialists and will require the necessary skills and experience to develop the practice of staff within the department by providing leadership, motivation, and training. St Cuthbert's is committed to staff development and this important middle leadership role would suit a candidate wishing to progress to a senior leadership post in the future.  

This role should appeal both to candidates seeking their first significant leadership post, or to more experienced candidates already in a leadership role, looking for a new challenge and an opportunity to develop mathematics in an 11-18 setting.

Above all, we are looking for someone who will help our boys become great men, leading by example, raising their aspirations and achievement, and inspiring them to a love of mathematics.

This is an opportunity to join an impressive, all-boys Catholic School that has enjoyed a reputation as a centre of educational excellence for over one hundred and forty years.
