Work With Us

At Rastrick, we  believe that teaching is our core business and that teachers need to love the craft of teaching, love to talk about it, get a buzz from doing it and are enthused when they see students achieve great results because of it.

We have a simple aim:  'most teaching is to be outstanding and never less than good."

Rastrick High School is an enriching and exciting place to work; we have superb students, committed & highly skilled staff and a focus on delivering the highest possible quality classroom teaching.

Our staff are our most valuable asset;  we are growing and developing all the time and are always looking for enthusiastic, committed teachers to join our team. 

We are particularly interested in hearing from teachers of English, Maths and Science.
