We seek an enthusiastic, well-qualified teacher to join our successful Philosophy, Beliefs and Ethics department and teach RS up to GCSE level and, possibly, AS. The subject is taught for an hour a week and the department performs well-above the national level.
Chestnut Grove is a high performing, 11-18, multi-cultural school in Balham, South London.

The Chestnut Grove curriculum provides a rigorous, knowledge-rich, transformational education, encapsulated through our PROUD values, which prepares our students to succeed at university and lead fulfilling lives. It is the embodiment of our ethos of a creative learning community, which marries traditional values with dynamic approaches to teaching and learning.
