History is a popular and thriving subject at Uppingham, with a strong academic record, so this is a perfect opportunity for an experienced History teacher to play a pivotal role in the History Department’s continued success.

Pupils choose to study History because they find it intellectually stimulating. They are willing to engage with complex ideas and find the teaching challenging and inspiring. Our aspirations mean that we are not just looking for an outstanding teacher to be our Head of History – capable of inspiring and leading pupils and staff – but someone who has the vision and energy to create the best and most innovative History Department in the country.

The History Department is in a strong place and we are looking for a person of real quality and inspiration to be its next leader. We need someone willing to invest energy and take an already strong subject to an even higher level. We want our teachers to be empowered to innovate and to challenge pedagogical paradigms.
