We are seeking to appoint an inspirational teacher to be the Lead Teacher of History from September 2019.

Prendergast Vale School is a small all-through school providing high quality education from nursery to Year 11 that aims to transform the lives of all the children who attend the school.  By keeping the school small, we have created a community of pupils and teachers where no pupil is left behind, which has enabled us to create an environment in which pupils want to learn, achieve and behave well.   

This is an exciting time to join our school following our ‘Good’ judgement Ofsted in February 2018. The successful candidate will be part of a transformative staff team committed to outstanding provision and outcomes for all students.  The school benefits from being part of the Leathersellers’ Federation of Schools.

The successful candidate will have:

  • an excellent track record of raising attainment and examination results at Key Stages 4; 
  • evidence of outstanding teaching across all Key Stages;
  • the ability to raise expectations and aspirations of students of all abilities;
  • an understanding of effective strategies for urban schools;
  • a desire to work in partnership with others sharing good practice and experiences.


The post is suitable for a fully qualified teacher looking to take a step into a middle leadership role and develop their career in an environment offering outstanding training and progression programmes to all.

Our school motto is “We are forever learning” and the successful candidate will be expected to be committed to their own professional development. We are committed to providing excellent CPD for Middle Leaders and offer the accredited National Award for Middle Leaders (NPQML) to all Middle Leaders.  We offer a comprehensive and supportive induction programme for all new members of staff.  You will also have access to a rich and varied CPD programme within the school and across the Federation.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with a forward thinking staff and school leadership team who ensure that the academic and social development of every student is at the heart of what they do.
