THE ROLE - History Teacher

Ideally you will have an undergraduate degree in a subject related to Humanities and the appropriate History teacher training qualification.

Students and teachers alike enjoy lessons, which make for a positive and purposeful atmosphere throughout the school. This school is only looking to employ passionate educators, candidates who are prepared to fully immerse themselves in the school community, be willing to plan, prepare and deliver all lessons independently and take part in extra curricular activities.

The Humanities department is well resourced and well run, the team work together and continually raise standards. Enterprise and critical thinking is embedded in the school's ethos and teaching right across the curriculum, and this has been found to bring passion and excellence to teaching and learning.

This position will be starting in November on a two term basis to extend for the full academic year and leading to a permanent position for the right person. It would suit either an ECT or experienced teacher. The school offers great training plus a clear and attainable path for promotion - many responsibility post holders have been promoted from within the departments.
