An exciting opportunity has arisen for someone to join a growing and increasingly successful Humanities Faculty leading and delivering History to the young people of Catterick.

If you are an exceptional and inspirational History Teacher who would be able to support, lead and add expertise to our team of teachers then we would love to hear from you. We are looking for a person with drive and personal ambition who will inspire and enthuse our students and instil in them a love for the subject and a desire to learn. The role will require an individual who can demonstrate resilience and has experience of delivering innovative teaching methods to achieve improved academic outcomes.

At Risedale Sports and Community College, the History Department, as part of the Humanities Faculty, is committed to excellence in teaching. We pride ourselves on putting the students at the centre of all we do, from creating an engaging, positive, welcoming environment to exploring cutting edge pedagogy. We inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people so that when they leave Risedale they value the differences in the world around them.

At KS4, students studying the subject at GCSE follow the Edexcel specification. The topics include Early Elizabethan England, The American West, Weimar and Nazi Germany and Crime and Punishment through time. At KS3 students study a number of themes including during Year 7 the Middle Ages and a local study of Richmond Castle, Year 8 Tudors, Stuarts and the British Empire and Year 9 the two world wars.

We are looking to appoint a forward thinking, innovative and creative specialist. The successful candidate will be open to new ideas and committed to the philosophy of the team. In a profession that requires resilience, hard work and adaptability, the Humanities Faculty at Risedale is determined to offer the best and have fun along the way.

The college offers all employees bespoke training and support; a highly cohesive and supportive staff team; outstanding CPD including up to date individualised action research; the opportunity to develop skills and interest through extra-curricular clubs and a chance to join Risedale at a very exciting point in the school’s development.

Risedale Sports & Community College is a vibrant and happy place to learn, characterised by excellent relationships between staff, students and parents in the context of 'Learning and Achieving Together'. Students are at the heart of all that we do. The College currently has a population of 510 students aged 11-16 years and enjoys an enviable and growing reputation in its local community. It is expected to expand to between 600 and 800 students over the next decade as the population of Catterick Garrison increases by becoming a ‘Super Garrison’. Links with the Armed Forces are strong. The College has one of the largest proportions of service children (over 40%) of any secondary school in the UK. This military connection is an integral part of the college’s distinctive character. Risedale is located in the beautiful county of North Yorkshire, bordering the North York Moors National Park, offering a high quality of life. The college is just a 5 minute drive from the A1(M) providing easy access to Teesside, Newcastle, York and the Leeds conurbation.
