Start date: September 2018
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Competitive
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: Yes

We are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic Classicist to join this vibrant department from September 2018. 

Location: Hereford Description: Full time and permanent 

We require an inspirational teacher who will be able to motivate pupils and further the department’s excellent academic record. The successful candidate will teach Latin, from Year 8 beginners to Oxbridge entrance, and Classical Civilisation at A-level. Greek, usually taught to GCSE, would be an advantage.

Pupil uptake of the classical subjects and results in public exams are excellent. Latin which is taught to all pupils is a popular GCSE option and this remains the case at A Level. Classical Civilisation and Greek also flourish in the Sixth Form and many of our students pursue their Classics at university.

We are looking for a Teacher with first-rate inter-personal skills, the ability to work well and communicate effectively with pupils, colleagues and parents. In addition, energy, vision and high expectations are essential qualities in this position. The successful candidate’s professional enthusiasm and commitment will project a progressive and positive image of Classics in all areas of school life.

The post would suit an NQT or, equally, a Teacher of greater experience. 

In addition to his or her academic teaching and leadership responsibilities, the successful candidate will also be asked to contribute fully to the pastoral and extra-curricular life of the school.

The School was inspected by ISI in 2014 and graded “excellent” in each of the eight categories. 

Hereford Cathedral School has a well-established and thriving extra-curricular programme, and the successful applicant will be expected to play an active part in this. 

An application form and information pack may be downloaded from the school website www.herefordcs.com/job-vacancies. Completed applications should be accompanied by a covering letter and sent to Cath Knowles, HR Department, Hereford Cathedral School, Old Deanery, The Cathedral Close, Hereford HR1 2NG or to c.knowles@herefordcs.com

The closing date for applications is Midday on Wednesday 7th March 2018 with interviews scheduled for Week beginning 12th March 2018.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all members of staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Appointments are subject to enhanced DBS clearance and satisfactory employment references and other safer recruitment checks.
