This is a fantastic opportunity for a highly skilled enthusiastic team player to join the Global Zone and particularly the History Team at Walkden High School.

Walkden High School is a wonderful community; brilliant, able, hard-working students, committed staff, and amazingly supportive parents.

We are proud to provide an academic education within a comprehensive setting. We are passionate about caring for our students and in doing so we aim for the STARS: Sensible, Thoughtful, Ambitious, Respectful & Supportive – qualities you will display to inspire our students.

In addition you will join our team of Lead Practitioners where you will be able to use your energy and enthusiasm to gain experience working at a whole school level on coaching and mentoring teaching staff.

You will primarily play a key part in raising the standard of teaching & learning within the Global Zone through the quality of your own teaching and by supporting the professional development of colleagues. You must have a track record as an outstanding practitioner with evidence of raising standards and outcomes beyond your own classes. We are committed to CPD and full support would be given to successful applicants who do not yet hold Lead Practitioner status. Our vision is to use LPs to drive up standards in Teaching & Learning across the school.

You will have excellent communication skills and be approachable whether dealing with learners, parents or colleagues. You will need experience in observing and evaluating teaching quality, and providing feedback and coaching. Just as importantly, you will need to share our passion and vision of helping every learner achieve their full potential.

In 2017 62% of our students gained 4+ in both English & Maths. In History 59% gained A*-C and 20% achieved A*-A. This is an exciting time to join us at Walkden and to become part of a team of staff who are dedicated to improving these results further.

Opportunities for career progression are excellent.
