Bishop Challoner Catholic Collegiate School is a Catholic School within the Archdiocese of Westminster. The post holder will be expected at all times to uphold the Catholic ethos of the school. Mission Statement: Bishop Challoner Catholic Collegiate School is a community of learning for young adults. We educate young people to realise their spiritual and academic potential within the framework of our Catholic ethos for the economic, social and cultural demands of the 21 st century. The Learning Village is a unique education federation of Bishop Challoner Girls and Bishop Challoner Boys Schools. The school is organised into 3 separate institutions, Girls school 11-16, Boys school 1116, (girls and boys 11 16 are taught separately) and a Sixth Form College. All staff are expected to support the CATHOLIC ETHOS of the school. All staff employed from January 2001 are contracted to teach in both schools. At middle management level, the academic curriculum is organised through 11 faculties, each line managed by a member of the leadership team. All heads of faculty are member of:The strategy group The curriculum development group All teachers are viewed as leaders and managers.
LEADERSHIP is defined as: ³Identifying and articulating the shared values of the school. Leaders then implement these values and the organisations vision for the future through planning. At this school, leadership is not solely located behind one person¶s door. It is a shared, collective responsibility to lead the school in the formulation and implementation of its values. The school will seek opinions and canvass for involvement on strategic issues. It is expected that at this level of responsibility, the postholder is aware of the nature of leadership and contributes as much as possible´. MANAGEMENT is defined as: ³Working with individuals and teams to achieve tasks. It is a means to an end. At the most fundamental level, every time we enter a classroom we are managers of the learning process. Others have additional management roles. The point is simple: we are all managers of the education process´.
