An outstanding opportunity in an Outstanding school where the professional development of staff is a high priority.

Required for September 2021 for this heavily over-subscribed, flourishing and successful 11 – 18 Church of England Academy, an award-winning “Outstanding School” (SIAMS 2016). This year, 80% of Year 11 pupils gained at least 5 GCSE Grades 9-4 including English and mathematics, and 85% of A-level grades were awarded A*- C.

An enthusiastic and committed teacher is sought to teach History throughout Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. The ability to offer A-Level Classics/Ancient History would be an advantage.
