Required for September 2018

We are one of the top performing grammar schools in the South East based in the London suburb of Sidcup. A heavily oversubscribed mixed selective grammar school where students excel with many going on to Oxbridge or other Russell Group universities. Our students are bright, motivated and enthusiastic. 

From September 2018 we require an enthusiastic and well qualified graduate to be a teacher of History and Geography. The ability to teach History at A level is essential. It would also be an advantage to teach both Geography and Government and Politics at A level. Both departments within the school are successful and have a positive uptake at GCSE and A level. Geography and History are taught as discreet subjects following a diverse KS3 curriculum in line with the national curriculum guidelines. Within both subject areas there are opportunities to extend learning through trips and extra-curricular experiences.

We are not only looking for a practitioner with passion and commitment, but one who is willing to contribute to the extra-curricular life of the school.

In return, we can offer you:

· Enthusiastic, able and well-behaved students

· A Level teaching

· Competitive pay and pension scheme

· Family-friendly working with a childcare voucher scheme

· An Investors in People employer

· Tailored induction programme

· Bluesky professional development scheme with the possibility of funding for additional qualifications.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Offers of employment are subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS disclosure and other employment checks.

Further details are available either from the school website www.csgrammar.com (Vacancies) or by emailing jobs@csgrammar.com. Please complete your application form via www.TES.com. CVs will not be accepted.    Current and previous employers will be contacted as part of the verification process pre-appointment checks.
