Would you like to be part of a school where the strengths and talents of students and staff are extremely valued (Ofsted February 2018)  

Would you like to work in a school where the culture of being happy and safe means pupils can, and do, enjoy being at school (Ofsted February 2018)    

Are you an outstanding teacher with the passion and motivation to inspire young people? 

If so, then you will not want to miss out on this golden opportunity to join our high-performing school, which recently retained its Ofsted Good rating, as Head of History. The person appointed will be an outstanding classroom practitioner and strong leader who will join a Humanities team at an exciting time of its development.    

Why come to Latimer?  

This is a fantastic school to work in: as a result of our success and popularity we are over-subscribed and have a very strong positive reputation.  On interview we ask candidates for their impressions of the College and without fail they comment on how wonderful our students are, the supportive team ethos amongst staff and how friendly and welcoming the College is.    

We are a tight-knit unit striving for the very best for our students and we are focussed on, and passionate about, learning and success.    

We genuinely care about our staff, their well-being and their professional development: we are a happy team, committed to working collaboratively and sharing the very best practice.   This was very much recognised in our recent Ofsted Inspection.     

If you are an outstanding History teacher aspiring to undertake a leadership role it really is worth applying for this post.  This new post has been created as part of a re-structure of the department that is taking place to accommodate our expanding student numbers.  History has grown in popularity over recent years and we are seeking an ambitious leader to shape it for the future.  

We need a candidate who has a clear vision of what outstanding History provision looks like. We are seeking to appoint a candidate who is passionate about learning; a team player who will thrive on collaboration; someone who really wants to make a difference!    They will see this role as a great stepping stone to a higher leadership position in the near future: join us, make your mark and secure rapid career progression!   

We have a strong track record of succession planning and many of our current leaders have progressed to promoted posts within the College.    

For an application form and further details, please contact Ms Ridley, Principal’s PA, on 01536 720310 or email vacancies@latimer.org.uk
