This post of History Teacher is a fractional post 0.6, covering maternity leave.

Our Lady's Catholic College is a successful comprehensive school with an excellent sixth form provision situated in Lancaster, Lancashire.

Parents recognise the excellent standard of pastoral care and we have a culture of high expectations resulting in a happy school to work and learn in.

We belong to a Catholic Teaching Alliance and have a sharp focus on research based CPD which allows our staff to engage in the current approaches to understand how learning takes place. This inspires our staff to give the best possible learning experience to enable our pupils to be more effective learners.
