St Damian’s is a heavily oversubscribed Roman Catholic Science College which is committed to the professional development of staff and promoting the welfare of children. We are seeking a well qualified, enthusiastic and innovative teacher of Food Preparation and Nutrition to cover a maternity leave.

It is a very exciting time to be joining the St Damian’s community.   In November 2017 we were judged by Ofsted to be Outstanding and we consistently produce at least good outcomes for our great children. Our Food Preparation and Nutrition results were excellent and in August 2018 50% achieved Grade 7 - 9 and 100% achieved Grade 4 or above. These results are the outcome of exceptional pastoral care and high-quality teaching.

St Damian’s is situated on the Tameside and Oldham border and is widely recognised for the quality of care it provides for all pupils and the professional opportunities afforded to all colleagues.
