Olchfa is looking for an inspiring and enthusiastic Teacher of History/Humanities to join our dedicated team of professionals at an outstanding school. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a high achieving and forward-thinking learning area within a highly successful school.
Olchfa is a large and busy school, with productive relationships between pupils and staff. In all key stages, we achieve results which place the school amongst the leading education providers in Wales, both in raw and value-added terms. The school’s governing body, leadership team and teaching staff are never complacent; we know that we have to keep evolving what we do in order to meet the rapidly changing world around us and the needs of our pupils.
Olchfa is part of the Innovation Schools Programme leading and shaping the design and development of the new curriculum in Wales to realise the vision outlined in Professor Donaldson’s Successful Futures. We welcome applications from all levels of experience. The successful candidate could be completing their PGCE qualification or be a teacher with some experience. They will have excellent subject knowledge and a passion for teaching. They will also be committed to achieving excellence and be ready to support the school’s vision.
At Olchfa, we actively encourage collaborative working and research to develop innovative teaching and learning practices, which enable all our pupils and 6th form students to achieve their full potential. Olchfa’s success is reflected through our ambition, our team ethos and support for one another, sustaining a positive atmosphere for learning, and the achievement of our pupils. Of course we are proud of our examination results, but school life is also about far more than that. The school offers a wealth of wider opportunities to our pupils including sport, expressive arts, trips and activities.
You will be offered excellent guidance, support and ongoing development whilst at Olchfa; all we ask in return is your commitment to achieving excellence, your ability to inspire others and a passion for your subject.
Olchfa School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We particularly welcome applications from under represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
