    Hi
    Im a final year student and have seen a post I would like to apply for. The post is at a church aided school and has a strong christian ethos, however children from all backgrounds attend the school.
    The application says that being a Chrisitian would be 'desirable'. I am not a religious person, but would I be considered for the job, if I could show that I could still fit in to the school and promote their ethos? Or should I give up now?
    What would be expected from a teacher in this post?
    Thanx

    Yes, there are many non-Christians in C o E and Catholic schools.
    Look at these websites for more ideas:

    Best wishes.
