Salary: Main Pay Scale – Upper Pay Scale plus TLR2.2 £4,528
Cottingham High School has fantastic students, supportive parents, passionate teachers and enormous potential: this is an exciting time to join our school. 100% of our parents would recommend our school to another parent. (Parentview Jan 2019) In May 2017 Ofsted judged the school as good in all areas and the upwards trajectory of our student outcomes continues to evidence this. The class of 2018 delivered our best results ever at GCSE: 72% Basics, and P8 of 0.22 (top 30% of schools nationally). Our Post 16 outcomes placed us in the top 15% of all schools nationally with an ALPs of 3. One parent commented (September 2018) ‘I cannot thank you and the other staff who've supported my son enough. I will be eternally grateful that you all saw my son’s potential, believed in him and have encouraged him to want to achieve.’
This is an excellent opportunity for a positive, dynamic, enthusiastic and well qualified teacher to join an ambitious and thriving Humanities Team. The successful candidate will be committed to the development of creative and engaging teaching and learning, which will instill in students a passion for history. We are looking for an inspirational leader who will oversee the design and delivery of an exciting history curriculum, and will measure its effectiveness. If you are able to provide support and challenge, and ensure that staff understand, and are actively implementing whole school and area policy, then we very much wish to hear from you.
We invest in all our staff, providing a comprehensive induction programme and outstanding support for NQTs or RQTs and ongoing continuous, personalised, professional development.
We welcome and encourage visits to school, where you will have the opportunity to meet some of our staff, students and the Headteacher to learn a little more about our ethos, vision and journey.
