About our School
St Cuthbert Mayne School is a Joint Roman Catholic & Church of England School that welcomes all students from across Torbay and South Devon, regardless of their faith background. Our school community is made up of students and staff from Christian and non-Christian backgrounds, who are respectful of our Christian ethos.
There are currently over 1000 students on roll and the school is growing in size year on year. The teaching accommodation is of mixed age but well-resourced and maintained. We are currently in the middle of an exciting £3.6 million building project, which will significantly improve the facilities for students and staff in our school. This will be completed by January 2023. Another £1 million of improvements will also be made to the school facilities in the summer of 2023.
It is an exciting time to join us on our journey to provide an outstanding, inspirational and challenging education for all students. We have a relentless focus to ensure that our children get access to the best possible teaching through a vibrant and engaging curriculum, so that they live life to the full both now and in the future. This will be a challenging but very rewarding post. The school is committed to developing all its staff through regular coaching and a wide range of professional development opportunities through the South West Institute for Teaching (SWIFT) . We also work in partnership with Education South West (ESW) as part of a family of schools, to educate children so they lead great lives. If you are passionate about making a difference to the life chances of our children then we want to hear from you.
