We are looking for a committed and enthusiastic Teacher of History with the opportunity also to teach Politics to join our highly successful department. 

Applications are welcome from experienced teachers or strong NQTs. We offer an excellent NQT induction programme and invest energetically in the growth of all our staff. The successful candidate will be required to teach all key stages. 

About the department:

The History department at St Marylebone is a dynamic and friendly department of seven teachers. We place great emphasis on mutual support which includes sharing all resources, rigorous and thoughtful mentoring, as well as more informal everyday conversations and socialising. This means that everyone feels valued, part of a coherent team, and able to take advantage of development opportunities.

We are passionate about History and how best to teach it, and are constantly discussing and refining our subject knowledge and pedagogy. We value clarity and coherence in our overview planning whilst allowing individuals to explore and communicate their own individual areas of interest. Due to this, we have very high uptake at both GCSE and A Level, and achieve excellent results in all key stages.

We believe in the value of enrichment and trips. We run a very well-attended and diverse History Society as well as numerous talks, trips within London, and workshops. We run annual trips to Berlin and to Italy (with other Humanities subjects) and in the past have also been to Russia. We are proud of the history education that we offer our students and are looking for a candidate to add to our exciting team.
