About the employer

St Andrew's C of E High is a mixed comprehensive Secondary School in Worthing. Having welcomed girls for the first time in September 2021, there has been consistent and profound development in the breadth and depth of our curriculum, placing STEM as a priority. With significant investments being made across the school, we are presented with opportunities for real innovation and change and are excited to be able to be growing our staff team. St Andrew’s is a school that has love at its core. You see it in the relationships between staff and students; both in the classrooms and the corridors; and in the excellent pastoral care that every student is given. I have heard many describe being part of our school community as being like ‘family’; both giving and receiving unrelenting love. Our core Christian values run through all that we do, both in daily life and in strategic development. We have the highest expectations and aspirations for all members of our community, and accept nothing less than an individual’s best. We recognise that we are all unique, with unique training and developmental needs – and we aim to give every staff member the best CPD to enable them to reach their career goals, no matter what that goal may be. It truly is an exciting time to join St Andrew’s. With considerable change afoot, there is so much impact to be made as the school goes from strength to strength.
