Tes Schools RecruitmentWakefield

Teacher of History.

Tes is currently supporting a friendly and supportive secondary academy, based in Wakefield. The school is looking to add a Teacher of History to its progressive and supportive Humanities Department ideally starting in September 2021.

The role will include teaching and coordinating the delivery of History at KS3 and GCSE across year groups 7 to 11.  You will support the Head of Humanities to enhance provision and will get the chance to get involved with exciting project work throughout the year. Project work will include revising schemes of work and ensuring the curriculum is engaging to all learners alongside projects that support student attainment, well-being and engagement within the wider school.

“With 725 pupils aged between 11 and 16 housed in a building that has benefited from much recent investment, the school is a busy and vibrant place. We serve the ex-mining area of Knottingley and draw increasingly from the surrounding areas. We are experiencing a period of unprecedented growth, for example in 2019 88 students left year 11 and 168 started in Y7. This was a similar picture in 2020. 

We have an exciting teaching opportunity and are looking for an outstanding, committed and motivated teacher to contribute to the development of teaching and learning and curriculum in our History department.  This is an ideal opportunity for an ambitious and proven classroom practitioner who can display a real passion for developing and inspiring the pupils in their care.  "
