New school seeks teacher for a magical journey.
Own wand an advantage!
OK so we told a small fib - but got you looking!
We are looking for someone who wants to be a part of our new Grove Academy family, who can share our vision and will enjoy working with us. We can offer you unique experiences, a new challenge and hopefully lots of fun. We can also offer you exciting professional development that you cannot get anywhere else. We are seeking for a teacher who is able to apply their history specialism in a very unique context - with or without magic!
Grove Academy is an all through school which opened in 2017 with both primary and secondary classes and will grow each year to a full capacity of 1,940 including a 6th form. We are looking for an innovative history teacher to join us in our second year to not only instil a real passion for history but to deliver it via an exciting cross curricular project approach.
This is a great chance to shape history at Grove, by initially developing the KS3 curriculum within our project based learning and working collaboratively with other secondary colleagues. Our project based curriculum is developing via ‘Big Questions’ and enables all pupils to place their learning within a real life context. We are working closely with local businesses and organisations to ensure that our pupils leave Grove with the skills and character that employers seek. You could help us develop that curriculum, creating exciting experiences and magical memories for our pupils.
A successful candidate will be in a prime position to help us shape the teaching of history across the whole school in the future. (If a candidate can successfully demonstrate appropriate experience then we would consider this a UPS subject leadership position.) The post could suit a experienced teacher looking for a challenge or someone with drive (and possibly a wand!).
What can we offer you?
- A place where you will feel valued for your hard work
- Good in house CPD offer
- Caring, well behaved and motivated students
- We want to learn from others and research, so providing networking opportunities for staff at all levels is important to us.
- Unique professional development pathways available to suitable candidates because our philosophy is to ‘grow our own’ where possible
We are looking for a history teacher who:
- Is passionate about their subject and ambitious for their students
- Is flexible and prepared to deliver other subjects as well as science through the project approach
- Evidence of raising achievement and delivering excellence
- Excited to work within a team of both primary and secondary staff who want to create a unique offer for our families
- A desire to provide students with experiences and opportunities they will never forget
We strongly recommend that you ring to discuss the post further, please contact Ms Andrea Fricker, Principal, at firstname.lastname@example.org If you email with your telephone number a member of the team will try to ring you back.

Now that will be magical!
