We are seeking to appoint a highly effective teacher of humanities to contribute to the teaching of History, RE and Geography. The successful candidate will be supported by experienced Learning Area Coordinators in each discipline, and the staff within their teams, who are highly-skilled, collaborative practitioners. We are seeking to appoint someone who is a team player, focused, resilient and good-humoured, and who has experience of teaching at least one of the disciplines up to KS4.
As an Academy we seek to embrace new methodologies, whilst maintaining a balance with traditional practice, to bring about examination success. All students at KS3 and KS4 have a 1:1 mobile device; this is an example of our commitment to use modern technology to maximise learning. Recent site developments have enhanced the resources available to staff and students, which includes an immersive classroom space and an iMac suite.
If you were to be successful in your application, you would be joining an Academy which strives for excellence. We benefit from purpose-built accommodation with excellent facilities. All in all, it is a wonderful place to work, learn and worship. Our vision is ‘Lord Direct us to Live Life to the Full’, rooted in John 10:10. Whilst Learning, we are Inspired and develop our Values through Experiences as each member flourishes. We aim to raise aspirations, realise potential and develop well-rounded successful teachers and young people.
We are looking for a high calibre, enthusiastic teacher of humanities who wishes to be part of the success story of St Wilfrid’s. You would be joining a forward-thinking Academy with an excellent team of staff who, along with fantastic students, inspire each other and all who come to visit. Whatever your current position, we will provide tailored CPD to challenge, grow, equip and prepare you for the next phase of your career.
St Wilfrid’s Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
