We are looking for an effective teacher of history to join our highly successful team for a maternity cover.
This is a really exciting opportunity to join one of the highest achieving schools in Leicestershire. Our success is down to our positive culture. Our pupils are a delight to teach and staff strive to provide the very best education they can for them. We are a small school where every pupil is well known to us and everyone matters. Our ethos is encapsulated in the slogan “Care and Excellence for All”. Visitors often comment that they can feel these values in action as they tour the school.
We are highly ambitious for our pupils and are well on our way to Outstanding. We are already Outstanding for pupil behaviour and for pupil welfare and expect to be fully Outstanding at our next inspection.
Academic excellence is central to our ethos and our pupils are very keen to succeed. 88% achieved a GCSE grade 4+ in history in 2017-18, with high numbers achieving a 7+, and a subject progress of +0.26. We expect to further improve on these figures this year.
We also provide a great working environment. Our staff team are highly professional, mutually supportive and strive to bring out the best in one another. We have a strong professional development programme and offer many opportunities for you to improve your practice.
If you would like to find out more, please contact the school for a tour. We really enjoy showing prospective members of staff around.
We look forward to meeting you.
The closing date for applications is Friday 5 October.
