Early Career Teacher: Applications welcomed

Due to increasing pupil numbers we are in a very fortunate position to be able to offer a part time (0.5) Teacher of History role to commence in September 2024.

We seek a part time Teacher of History who is enthusiastic and passionate about their subject. We are looking for a subject specialist with the ability to teach History to GCSE. The ability to teach other Humanities subjects at KS3 would be an advantage as there may be the occasional lesson of Geography or Religious Studies on the timetable.

Our Humanities Faculty offers History, Geography, Religious Studies, Latin and GCSE Business Studies. At KS3 our curriculum is broad, providing a firm foundation for GCSE, whilst not being constrained by GCSE content. The faculty is comprised of a team of professionals who work together and support each other. The staff are all subject specialists, are passionate about what they teach and about achieving excellent results. Student outcomes are good in Humanities subjects and we are looking to add further strength to this team. The faculty is ambitious, forward looking and strives to ensure that every student excels.

The successful candidate will be a reflective practitioner who is able to maximise the potential of all our pupils. We use Rosenshine’s Principles to underpin our teaching and learning, plan jointly and have a clear and centralised behaviour policy. We are an outward looking school and are keen to develop all our staff. You will use teaching and assessment effectively to ensure that all pupils know and remember key knowledge and skills. We are also looking for a colleague who can make a contribution to the wider life of the school through extra-curricular clubs, trips and visits and supports our ethos of developing the whole child.

We make every effort to develop our staff team, offering professional development opportunities and the chance to be part of a wider Trust, yet retaining the friendly atmosphere of a small school. We are looking for energetic and enthusiastic people to join our team, who have children at the heart of their practice and who will help us to drive forward our aim: to deliver an outstanding education to every single one of our pupils.
