We are looking for an excellent Teacher of History to start end of August 2020. The successful candidate will not only be passionate about their subject, and have exceptional subject knowledge, but also have a passion and drive to deliver and engage students in their studying of the History.
Avanti Fields School is a new all-through school which welcomed the first intake of Year 7 students in September 2018. The school is rapidly expanding, and will grow year by year to a full cohort of 1,320. This is an exciting time to join the school as it continues its journey to outstanding.
Avanti Fields is a Hindu-designated faith school, part of the growing family of Avanti schools. However, staff and students at Avanti Fields School do not originate from any specific faith background. Applications are welcome from practitioners of any faith and from those of none; they will, however, be expected to be in full sympathy with the unique ethos and vision of the School.
The staff team at Avanti Fields School is passionate about our school and are relentlessly focused on improving the achievement and opportunities for all our students. All staff that work at the school will need to subscribe to our ethos and values and seek to improve and develop their own practice and performance for the benefit of our students. This is a unique opportunity to help develop a new and innovative school which is driven by three key elements for both students and staff:
• Educational excellence
• Character formation
• Spiritual insight
As a genuine all-through school, we are in the position to make a long term, lasting and positive impact on our students’ lives. The behaviour of learners in our schools is excellent and our parents, carers and students are highly aspirational.
We believe in high expectations, challenge and support to enable our students to understand and develop into the best version of themselves. Through coaching and time allocated to professional development, we support our teachers to excel in creating a highly successful learning environment for our students and we are an ambitious team who strive to ensure that all students enjoy learning and surpass expectations.
In this role you will:
- Work to develop and grow the team at Avanti Fields as the school takes on further cohorts of students
- Have a genuine passion for lifelong learning
- Have specialism in History and be prepared to teach some Geography
- Have a successful track record at GCSE History
- Be able to self‐start, work independently and collaboratively as part of a team
- Show initiative and take personal responsibility for your own actions with the motivation to work hard
- Embrace any activity that is in the interests of protecting and the education of young people
- Demonstrate the desire to continually raise standards
- Receive development opportunities within the school and wider Trust
The successful candidate, whilst not necessarily a Hindu, will subscribe fully to the ethos and vision of the Avanti Schools Trust for the school.
