Governors are seeking to appoint for September 2021 a suitably experienced and qualified School Chaplain in our thriving Catholic school. This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to further their career in a school environment.


The Chaplain must be a practising Roman Catholic and should have relevant experience or qualification (e.g.Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies) that suits a chaplaincy role in the Catholic Church with a mature and reassuring sense of self and vocation and a strong personal spirituality and emotional resilience.


The Chaplain will be expected to serve both staff and students. Students expect the Chaplain to be approachable and compassionate, whilst at the same time professional. The Chaplain will be someone skilled and experienced in dealing with a wide range of people, maintaining the utmost discretion and always working within the school’s Code of Conduct.

The Chaplain will need to be an efficient organiser, both internally with respect to assemblies, charity fundraising, student groups; and externally, liaising with the Cathedral, the Diocesan Youth Service, the wider Ursuline Community and other stakeholders. The range of activities and demands on their time will require the Chaplain to be capable of independent, proactive work, using well-developed skills of personal organisation and time management. The postholder will also support the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead for safeguarding and child protection within the school.

Brentwood Ursuline is a high-achieving, oversubscribed Catholic school for girls (Years 7-11) with a co-educational Sixth Form of approximately 240. We have a strong academic profile and have been designated as a Good school (2017) where “pupils attain high standards”. Our Section 48 Inspection graded us as “Outstanding”.


BUCHS is committed to the protection and safety of its students and the successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
