This dynamic and forward looking department is looking to recruit an inspirational head of department to lead the team and promote History at KS3, 4, and 5 as well as throughout the school. If you are looking to teach within a highly professional and supportive comprehensive environment and would welcome the opportunity to work with us to enable all our students to reach their full potential, then we would like to hear from you.
We are seeking an experienced and dedicated History Teacher with a record of strong achievement across KS3, 4 and 5 to lead the department. For an excellent candidate there is also an opportunity to lead the Humanities faculty. We offer extensive CPD and would anticipate the candidate rapidly progressing to a more senior leadership role.
Poole High School is an 11-18 comprehensive school serving families throughout the historic town of Poole. As the largest school in this selective catchment, we pride ourselves on the fact that all students thrive in this caring and collaborative environment.
Our students are well motivated and examination performance at Key Stages 4 and 5 has rapidly progressed over the last 5 years. This year, we achieved the school’s best ever GCSE results and were placed first in the post 16 league table in Poole for value added. Consequently, we are within the top 25% of schools nationally at KS4 and KS5 for progress. The humanities subjects have been highly significant in contributing to these excellent student outcomes.
The quality of life in Poole is good and there is easy access to diverse range of cultural and scenic attractions, including the Jurassic Coast.
This post is suitable for experienced teachers.
