Gosport & Fareham Multi Academy Trust are looking to appoint an outstanding Head of History to join our community. You should be a passionate lifelong learner who is hardworking and enthusiastic with excellent subject knowledge. You will be a motivated individual with a keen interest in encouraging and inspiring students to love learning and excel in the subject area of History. 

The successful applicant will be prepared to share their practice with colleagues and fully contribute to our in-house programme of continuing professional development.   

Our students take pride in their schools, have a good work ethic and are keen to do their very best. Our learners are respectful, polite and work hard to develop into resilient young adults who we are very proud of. We are committed to enabling all learners, irrespective of their current attainment, to achieve. 

As an organisation we have adopted a ‘growth mind-set’ and introduced a monitoring culture to help develop all learners. Pupils are encouraged to participate in a range of extra-curricular activities, outings and competitions throughout the year.  

The ability to teach A Level is not a requirement but for suitable candidates there may be the opportunity to do so. An ability to teach another subject would be an advantage. Candidates are encouraged to address this issue in their application.
